XLR8 Performance Bicycle Wheels

XLR8 TrailX Downhill Premium Carbon MTB Rims

Regular price $579.00

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!)

You get:

  • 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

Rim options listed as "special order" or "Sold Out" will be ordered immediately upon your purchase and supplied ASAP. Get in touch if you have Qs.

We can arrange wheelbuilds with supplied hubs, or can supply all parts and build the wheels for you. Just get in touch.

If you are a heavier rider, or feel you ride to the limit, get in contact and we'll help you spec the right product for your needs.

Recommended usage: Heavy duty Enduro or Trail riding where reliable performance is required.
