Our in-house MT rim is short simply for "Mountain". Only a few years ago, the MT rim would generally be categorized as an all-mountain type rim, given it's weight (565g), width (22mm inner), and strength (it's super strong). With towards modern push towards wide, "XC" now can be 24 or 25mm inner. The fact that modern XC is much wider than yester-year's All Moutain illustrates just how far the world of MTB has come.
These wheels are great all around type 26" MTB disc wheels. If you exclude the hub set weight from consideration of the overall wheel set weight, they're actually solid performers. When you add the hub set weight back in, you'll see that the hubs contribute in a significant way to the wheel set weight. The take away from this note is that these wheels will feel and perform lighter than what the listed weights below portray. It's a quality rim, wide enough to run 2.5" tires without question, but still narrow enough if you want something more XC-ish, like a 1.95" tire. Quality DT Swiss black stainless steel spokes, and Shimano Deore M525 6-bolt disc QR hubs round out the rest of the wheel spec. They will look and feel great, and will hold up for the duration.
-Wheels will come with rim tape installed, and will include a set of QR levers.
-The BWW MT rim is 20mm tall, 28.5mm wide, with a 22mm inner width. It is schrader and presta valve compatible, 32 holes.
