Wheelset 29 "XC | Carbon-Ti MTB Straightpull 6-hole hubs | Race Face aluminum rims
intended use : Cross Country XC
With this wheelset, racers can really get it down. The light carbon-Ti hubs and the stable Race Face rims also forgive a driving mistake. The balanced selection of components guarantees high reliability and a long service life.
The bodies of the X-Hub SP hubs are CNC-milled and turn around a multi-butted aluminum axis. Due to the diameter of 17 mm, this gives the hub considerable rigidity. High-quality, double-sealed ball bearings from the bearing specialist SKF are installed, which ensure a permanently silky smooth running. The axle play can be easily adjusted from the outside by hand. The new Pre-Load setting ring is now easier to use.
The freewheel on the rear hub engages over four pawls, each with three teeth, in a 56-speed titanium toothed ring in order to be able to resist the performance of performance-oriented drivers.
The main advantages of the Straightpull hubs are, in addition to the more modern design, non-contact spokes that do not cause any unpleasant noises and spoke heads that cannot work into the spoke flange. If desired, the Straightpull hubs can also be spoked crosswise.
The ARC rim has become one of the favorite rims of wheel builders from all over the world. With the new offset variants, even stiffer and more durable wheels can be built. This is achieved through a more balanced spoke tension between the drive side and the non-drive side.
A specially shaped rim bed with a central recess and minimalistic, short hooks on the rim flange keep the tire securely on the rim in every situation, even at low air pressures. The larger contact area of the tire also significantly improves grip.
The rim is made of forged aluminum 6069, the joint is inserted and is additionally glued in order to increase durability and reduce weight. The black anodized finish saves weight and gives the rims with their vinyl decals a subtle look. Of course, the rims can be converted for tubeless use.
Wheel construction at R2-Bike
Our wheels are completely assembled by hand by our wheel builders. During the entire construction, it is important that not only the concentricity is correct, but also that the spoke tension is as even as possible. The special care allows us to give a lifelong guarantee against broken spokes, as long as this has not been caused by violence!
You will also receive the following services for our wheels:
A universal impeller bag for all common sizes.
A spare spoke + nipple in all required spoke lengths in order to be able to repair the wheel at short notice even after accidents.
A free initial inspection of the wheel, in which the resulting work is completely free! Only shipping costs are charged.
A crash replacement promise. If your wheel is damaged due to force majeure, we will rebuild your wheel once. We grant 100% discount on all labor costs and only charge the material!
