Wheelset 26 "Carbon Ti X-Hub MTB SL hubs with NoTubes Crest rims and Sapim CX Ray spokes
Carbon Ti X-Hub MTB SL Products made by Carbon Ti stand for lightweight construction without carelessness and compromises in reliability. Finally, all parts are driven and tested in the World Cup. This guarantees the end user a high quality and reliability in connection with a first-class appearance.
The X-Hub SL are a clear step towards lightweight construction. Based on the 1st generation of the X-Hub, all features have been taken over and packed into a much lighter overall package. The bearing preload is very easy adaptable and the freewheel accesses over four pawls in a titanium teeth to the emergence of performance-oriented drivers can resist. All industrial bearings are of course sealed and installed in a 2 + 2 arrangement.
The lightweight construction was introduced via an optimized 17 mm aluminum axle and artfully milled hub body. The axle has been butted for optimal results so material is only where it's needed. At the same time experienced the hub body a significant revision. Powerful paired disc brakes and cutouts on the spoke flanges reduce the weight of the hub pair to a fabulous 306g!
The hubs are suitable for quick release and 15 mm thru-axle on the front wheel as well as Syntace X-12, Maxle142 and Shimano E-Thru on the rear wheel. Alternatively, the wheelset is available with a hub for Lefty forks.
NoTubes Crest MK3
With the MK3, Notubes brings an evolution of their legendary Crest rim on the market. Despite an increased inner width of 2 millimeters, the Americans were able to save 20 grams on the rim and at the same time increase their stiffness. This is made possible by the new rim design inspired by the Valor Carbon rims. Due to the increased inner width of 23 millimeters, the tire gains in volume and sits more stable on the rim at low air pressure. After the Notubes wide-right system, the width of the Crest MK3 has been optimized for 2.0 inch to 2.25 inch tires. The previous version has remained the same over the years refined Bead Socket Technology and the superior tubeless properties. With an extra low rim flange, the tire can fully unfold and the tire volume increases compared to a conventional rim. This leads to a lower rolling resistance and a better damping behavior.
Sapim CX-Ray spokes are so-called knife spokes. The middle part is butted during production to 1.5 mm diameter and flat forged in the last step. These processes provide a solidification of the structure and produce extremely durable spokes.
