It's true, not everyone out there gets to fly Airwolf, the Raddest 1980's TV attack helicopter starring Jan-Michael Vincent, Ernest Borgnine, and the guy with the eye patch? Air wolf time!

Oh yeah, should you buy this wheel set? Entirely your call. Should you watch this short but sweet rock climbing video? Absolutely.
The 29er wheels are built with Shimano Deore (M525 series) loose ball, cup + cone, quick release, 6-bolt disc, black ano hubs that will work with Shimano MTB 8/9/10/11 speed cassettes. The hub shell is aluminum, but the axle and freehub are steel. Shimano Deore M525 hubs don't play the "light weight" hub game. You can run a 6 or 7 speed cassette on them as well, but you'll need to source a 4.5mm spacer (6 speed), or 4 mm spacer (7 speed) that is compatible with your cassette's function. The 26" all silver wheel set is now being built with Shimano LX Non-Disc hubs. The Shimano LX is a step up from the Deore M525, but the LX is non-disc, whereas the Deore is 6-bolt disc compatible. If you're looking for a 26" disc brake compatible wheel set, please visit our other products, this specific 26" all silver wheel set with Shimano LX hubs is only rim brake compatible.
