Shimano XTR Race Wheel M985

Balance and Innovation have long been staples of Shimano's wheel program, and now that trail riders have a dedicated wheelset of their own, the new XTR Race wheels have been rebalanced and refocused specifically to meet the exacting demands of top-level cross-country racers.

Leaner and meaner than ever, these disc-brake-only wheels come with true UST-compatibility in a 19-millimeter-wide, dent-resistant scandium hoop. At just 350 grams per rim, acceleration comes instantly. And for as light as these wheels feel underfoot, thanks to a straight-pull lacing design that uses 24 butted 15-gauge spokes per wheel, they don't flinch under hard, aggressive cornering.

Available with a 15-millimeter or standard quick-release front axle, XTR Race wheels use a fast-engaging titanium freehub body and Shimano's proven cup-and-cone bearings for years of race-day performance.

Forget about all those “one-race” wheels with their dubious claims of gossamer weight and performance, because this hand-built, sub-1,500-gram wheelset draws on decades of podium-winning experience and is as focused and committed to performing on race day—or on any day—as you are
