2014 Shimano XT WH-M785 27.5 XC Tubeless Wheelset

Product Description

General Information

Is the 'tweener wheel size ideal? Many think so. Shimano certainly didn't want to miss the party, and they've geared up their XT Wheelset for those seeking that point of transcendence between 29" speed and 26" maneuverability. The Shimano XT WH-M785 27.5 XC Tubeless Wheelset is their top offering for 27.5" wheels. They are light enough to race without hindrance, yet they can stand up to the abuse of everyday trail rides in rough terrain.

While light and durable, the best part about these aluminum 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 27.5" M785 wheels are laced with 24 black 2.0/1.5/2.0 butted stainless steel spokes in a two-cross pattern, and aluminum nipples keep the rotational weight down to a minimum. They're tied to a 7075 T6 aluminum hubshell and axle (steel axle for QR rear option) and roll 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 hubs are compatible with Centerlock brake rotors and the rims with 27.5"/650b tires. The rim width is 24.6mm on the 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 1774g with QR rear wheel or 1805g with 12mm thru-axle rear.

The Shimano XT WH-M785 27.5 XC Tubeless Wheelset is 'tweener goodness.
