DESIGNED FOR THE WAY YOU RIDE -If you are riding the trails like Lysterfield or the You Yangs in Melbourne, Manly Dam or Hornsby in Sydney or Daisy Hill and Bunya in our own back yard here in Brisbane, the XTrail is an ideal wheel set for those fast flowing trails. The type of riding you will find yourself doing on your favourite hardtail or short travel dual suspension bike. Very light for the climbs, agile and quick to handle the corners and perfect over the more technical terrain, the Xtrail is ready for anything you can throw at it. It is also a more compliant wheel set so it is great for longer rides and marathon style events. This HD model is designed for riders over 90kg.
TUBELESS READY -Run the Xtrail MTB wheels tubeless for more traction and speed on the trails and no punctures! Fitting tubeless tyres can be difficult but not on our Xtrail wheels. We’ve designed our wheels to make fitting tubeless ready tyres easier! You’ll be surprised at how easy it is!
WHY ALLOY AND NOT CARBON - We engineered our alloy mountain bike rims to perform at the highest level. The alloy used is a special type developed for our rims to provide very low weights and to achive the perfect level of stiffness, strength and compliance. We just cannot get a carbon rim to be better! Add to that the cost and we don't see the point of selling wheels that are twice the price that don't ride as good, just for the sake of having carbon.
TOP OF THE LINE HUBS - The Xtrail wheel set is built with our new Stealth mountain bike hubs. Features like oversized sealed bearings for smooth and fast rolling and maxmum durability, sleek annodised finish and multiple options for axles types and sizes make it an awesome hub that matches the look of the wheel set perfectly.
It also uses a new 72 point engagement free hub. What is that you ask? Well that means that when you start to pedal, there is a much shorter gap between you beginning the pedal stroke and the hub engaging the drive mechanism. Ok, but what will that do for me? That means that coming out of corners, riding over rocks at slower speed and when you start pedaling in the climbs, the hub will engage with a lot less spin of the pedals. Plus, all those clicks does make a very sweet sound!! As a comparison, we compared our hubs to a popular Swiss branded hub, the result? Our Hubs quadripled their engagement times.
