2014 Shimano XT WH-M785 29 XC Tubeless Wheelset

Product Description

General Information

Shimano XT will always be the workingman's MTB group of choice, bearing many of the top details and function of XTR yet is far less expensive. As an example, the Shimano XT WH-M785 29 XC Tubeless Wheelset is similar to the XTR version, save for two major differences. Where XTR M980 wheels use significantly more expensive carbon fiber for the rim, this XT level wheelset uses aluminum. The XTR 29" wheels are also made for glue-on tubular tires. That fact alone makes these XT wheels Shimano's top 29" MTB clincher offering.

While still light and durable, the best part about these rims is that they meet UST specs and carry the certification to prove it - no holes in the rim bed, a deep central channel, and a four-sided bead seat to hold the tire in place at low pressure. This means that you'll have easy tire installation and inflation. Once you seat the bead with a standard floor pump (no kidding) you'll have the ultimate in tubeless reliability. Why mess with anything less refined? You know the answer to this question if you've ever walked out of the woods with your bike on your shoulder because of a failed, homebrew tubeless setup.

The 29" M785 wheels are laced with 24 black 2.0/1.8/2.0 butted stainless steel spokes in a two-cross pattern, and aluminum nipples keep the rotational weight down to a minimum. They're fixed to a 7075 T6 aluminum hubshell and axle, rolling on angular contact bearings. This system is easily adjustable and allows you to set the bearing preload to absolute perfection where play is eliminated and drag is nonexistent. The hub internals are protected from the elements with rubber contact seals and dust caps. The steel freehub body offers quick engagement and is compatible with 9- and 10-speed cassettes.

The rim width is 23.3mm outside; they work best with tires ranging from 1.5 to 2.25" in width. They come with an XT skewer when applicable. The wheelset weighs 1830g with QR rear wheel or 1887g with 12mm thru-axle rear. It's compatible with Centerlock brake rotors and 29"/700c tires.

The Shimano XT WH-M785 29 XC Tubeless Wheelset is ready to punch in.
