BWW XCHD Disc Wheel Set

Original price was: $269.99.Current price is: $199.99.

The XCHD Disc 29er (and now 26″ !) disc wheel set is a great upgrade over many OE wheels.


Now available in 26″ and 29er.

The XCHD Disc 29er disc wheels are a great upgrade wheel set.  They are designed to offer a step up from basic OE (original equipment) 29er sets found on most bikes, but does so at a tremendous value.  The XCHD Disc 29er disc rim has a 19mm inner width, (the same or better than many OE bicycle rims), and for comparison, 1 mm more inner rim width than the Sun Inferno 23.  All-in-all, not too shabby.  Many OE 29er wheel sets use rims with inner widths of 17 or 18mm, but with really heavy rims.  Sometimes more rim weight means more rim strength, but not for this discussion.  Why is that?  Inexpensive OE wheels sometimes use a really inexpensive aluminum alloy that needs much more material to achieve a minimum component of strength, (there are several).  So the wheels might be heavy and dull, and not very durable.  The idea is that at some point the rider will consider a wheel upgrade anyway, so why spend the money throwing darts at a board.

Enter the Bicycle Wheel Warehouse XCHD Disc wheels.

The XCHD Disc 29er rims build into strong, stiff, and reliable/durable wheels.  Having a slightly wider 19mm inner width helps the mounted tire to open up a little more with the rim, improving tire tread traction and tire stability, (less sidewall flex).  The rims are both schraeder valve and presta valve compatible, (they have a plastic presta insert in the valve hole), and feature single stainless eyelets around the spoke holes.

We are building these wheels with quick release Shimano 6-bolt disc hubs. These are a great upgrade from basic OE “mtb no-name” hubs.  They offer reliability, strength, and are universally recognized at any local bike shop.  The front and rear wheels are built with quality Sapim Leader black stainless steel spokes, 32 hole laced three cross with brass nipples.  This is a great, solid, 29er wheel set, built with quality components through out, and is highly recommended for anyone who wants a decent set of non-race oriented wheels at a stellar price.
