Lean, mean and aiming for the podium, Shimano's XTR Race wheels are disc-brake specific and come with true UST-compatibility in a 19-millimeter-wide, dent-resistant Scandium aluminum hoop. At just 350 grams per rim, acceleration comes instantly. And for as light as these wheels feel underfoot, thanks to a straight-pull lacing design that uses 24 15-gauge butted spokes per wheel, they don't flinch under hard, aggressive cornering. The front wheel's 15mm through-axle helps in that regard, too.
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.
