The new era of mountain biking has spawned a number of long-travel bikes that are light yet tough, and having the right wheels completes the equation. Shimano's Deore XT wheelset fits the bill beautifully with oversize axles and fully rebuildable precision hubs boasting angular-contact bearings. The rear XT hub delivers quick engagement and minimum drag, too, so it's perfect for technical riding and quick bursts of power. The tubeless rims lessen flats and allow low-pressure traction, while Shimano's Center Lock mount makes rotor installation a breeze.
These wheels accept tubeless and standard tires.
