Shimano XTR Trail Tubeless Wheelset (15mm through-axle front, QR rear)

Stiff, dependable and hungry for singletrack, Shimano's Trail wheels are disc-brake specific and come with true UST-compatibility in a 21-millimeter-wide, dent-resistant Scandium hoop. At just 400 grams per rim, accelerating out of corners comes naturally. And for as light as these wheels feel on the ups, thanks to a straight-pull lacing design that uses 24 butted spokes per wheel, you can open it up on the downhills and charge hard into aggressive corners. The 15mm through-axle up front helps keep your front end in line, too.

Features and Information

  • View a close-up of Shimano's Center Lock rotor mount.
  • Shimano's lateral-crossover spoke pattern reduces wheel dish, maintains uniform spoke tension, and adds to the rigidity, too, so the wheels stay true longer.
  • These wheels accept tubeless and standard tires.
  • Rim width: 21mm
