More about the XC Pro Carbon.

The Bicycle Wheel Warehouse XC Pro Carbon rim is light weight, but builds in to a very laterally stiff wheel set.  If you've had issues with flexy light weight wheels before, forget about it.  What's the catch?  Shimano XTR hubs are top notch, but they will only work with a 15x100mm / 12x142mm Thru Axle, (non-Boost), Shimano MTB cassette setup.  If that's you, you're in luck, time to watch a sweet video to celebrate!

Sorry, I meant this RAD video  

Featuring Shimano XTR centerlock disc hubs, we're combining stellar rims, hubs, spokes and nipples, all the individual wheel components work in concert, as they were designed to.  The XTR hub set offers front 15/142 TA compatability, (Thru Axle 15x100mm front, 12x142mm Thru Axle rear).  If you're looking for an outstanding All Mountain / Enduro wheel set, and don't mind using centerlock disc rotors, or running a centerlock to 6-bolt kit, this wheel set will help you set new time records on your favorite trails.

These wheels are built with Sapim (Belgium) D-Light Double Butted 2.0/1.65/2.0 black stainless spokes, (and Polyax black alloy nipples) in a 32 hole, three cross configuration front and rear.  D-Light spokes offer top quality and strength; and their light weight spec translates to race ready performance.  If you didn't know a thing about spokes, know that your wheels would come built with one of the best spoke products in the world.

Final word, these wheels are competitive with some of the best options in the marketplace.  Capable, fast, light weight, designed to hold up to aggressive riding, and moderate impacts.  The main drawback is that they are only 15x100mm TA (front) and 12x142mm TA (rear) compatible, and will only work with Shimano 8/9/10/11 speed cassettes.  If that's not a deterent, at this price they are an unbeatable deal.  We're not joking around here.
