Shimano XTR M985 Race 26 inch Mountain Bike Disc Wheelset

26", QR - XTR M985 Race 26 Disc Wheels: If you expect every bit as much out of your equipment as you invest in your training, then you're in the right place. The new XTR Race group doesn't just ask to be pushed at race pace, it demands it. Shimano's first-ever off-road double-ring crank rewards those who ride with a sense of urgency. XTR Race's sub-1,500-gram tubeless wheels spin quickly up to speed while stronger, leaner pedals offer greater efficiency and more control than ever. And forget the notion that a cross-country race brake needs to mean skittish, on-the-edge-of-control performance, because the new XTR Race brake supplies surgically apportioned stopping power while still shedding 40 grams over its predecessor. Want to race on a triple or boost your brake power even further? Don't be afraid to personally tune your ride with components from the XTR Trail catalogue of cross-compatible options Features: The ultimate in reliable XC race disc wheels from the ultimate Shimano MTB groupset, XTR wheels are engineered to perform in the most demanding conditions These XC racing wheels are lightweight with a Scandium 19C (23.3mm width) tubeless compatible rims and butted spokes 24 butted (2.0/1.5/2.0) stainless steel spokes Designed for quick release forks with 100mm O.L.D Easy to use Centre-Lock Disc rotor mount Double contact seals with internal grease sleeve to keep the elements out and the grease in The hub uses angular contact bearings designed to cradle the balls giving both radial and lateral support for superior strength and durability; they also offer precision bearing adjustment and easy maintenance Titanium freehub body with quick pawl engagement (10 degrees) provides instant power transfer Weight is kept down by using a hybrid one piece aluminium axle/cone For use with 8, 9 and 10-speed cassette sprockets Wide bearing placement gives excellent lateral rigidity further improving strength and durability Forged then anodized alloy hub shell for maximum strength and long lasting good looks Lightweight, strong and rigid hybrid alloy axle with integrated cone Ball bearing races are ground with Cubic Boron Nitride tool for high precision, durability and smooth rolling Stainless steel bearings Average weight: 674 grams Front, 889g rear .

Shimano Wheels

Shimano are a Japanese manufacturer primarily known for their cycling components, and to a lesser extent shoes and clothing. Founded in 1921, Shimano is widely believed to be the largest cycling component manufacturer in the world, having reached this status through a combination of innovation, reliability and value for money. Whatever your style of riding, whether it be road or MTB, Shimano will have a component range to suit your level and budget, from the low end Alivio and Tiagra to the professional standard XTR and Dura-Ace. Over the years, Shimano have revolutionised bicycle gear, brake and pedal systems, such as the recessed SPD, Hollowtech crank arms and smooth shifting Hyperglide sprockets. Initially their component range faced competition from Suntour, whereas nowadays their primary rivals for market share are SRAM and Campagnolo. If you wish to save money on their components and apparel, please visit my Shimano section, where I list as many money saving deals as I can find.

About Chain Reaction Cycles

This product is for sale at Chain Reaction Cycles, one of the largest online cycle shops in the world. Opening in 1985, and starting off as a small independent bike shop in Ballynure, it moved to Ballyclare in 1989 and is now based in Doagh (all in Northern Ireland). In addition to regular local service, Chain Reaction Cycles (or CRC as it is often abbreviated to) established itself as a mail order business via advertisements in bicycle magazines; this continued until 1999 where it launched it's now famous website at ChainReactionCycles.com. Their blue themed website stocks around 90,000 products ranging from MTB & Road cycling equipment, to triathlon, BMX and running kit. As per several other leading bike shops, Chain Reaction produce their own product ranges, under brands such as Brand X. To this day CRC sponsor many cycling events, and due to the company's size and efficiency are able to offer very competitive pricing on cycle equipment. In 2016 Wiggle acquired Chain Reaction Cycles, although the two websites continue to operate independently of each other, both with their own distinctive branding and product ranges.

For more information on CRC, you can visit their official online store at Chain Reaction Cycles.com, or find out more about the origins of the company on their wikipedia page.
