XLR8 TrailX Downhill Premium Carbon MTB Rims
We've been building carbon wheels for over 30 years now, and have learned a thing or two about what works, and what doesn't.
Our TrailX series of MTB rims are designed to be super dependable, laterally stiff, easy to tubeless, all at competitive weight and pricing.
In short, quality and heavy hitting Enduro or Downhill perfromance as good as it gets, at an affordable price, (and available from an Australian wheelbuilder with over three decades of experience!)
- Premium quality rims made with Japanese Toray T700 carbon
- "In moulded" spoke holes (not drilled - that compromises strength)
- 30mm internal width (40mm external), 30mm depth
- Local support and warranty - email or phone
- Australian warehouse stock - for immediate despatch of most models
- Removeable decals - if you want that stealth look
You don't get (nor pay for):
- Ridiculous marketing and expenses
- Claims of how fast our wheels will make you (though we reckon you will be faster)
- The overheads of a multinational bike company
