THEwheels XC-28

born on the trail

Brand new – our trail wheelset of THEwheels XC-28!

Our full carbon rim THErim has been intensively developed, paired with special hubs of NEWMEN®, and connected by spokes, as well as aluminum Prolock nipples from the Swiss manufacturer DT Swiss®. This resulted in a more aggressive and loyal companion for the trail and cross country use. The used wheel design has its robust lightness, obtained as a result of a massive rim flange and hookless clincher. With this package we achieve top rigidity values but and a top weight from 1359 g!!

The wheelset can be ordered with decals in various colors to meet every individual taste.

“Wow! Ultraleicht, perfekter Aufbau, sauschnell, sehr steif und auch noch breit und extrem stabil – der Bike-Ahead-LRS düpiert die Konkurrenz.”
