Shimano XTR Race Wheels Pair M985

If you expect every bit as much out of your equipment as you invest in your training, then you’re in the right place. The new XTR Race group doesn’t just ask to be pushed at race pace, it demands it.

Shimano’s first-ever off-road double-ring crank rewards those who ride with a sense of urgency. XTR Race’s sub-1,500-gram tubeless wheels spin quickly up to speed while stronger, leaner pedals offer greater efficiency and more control than ever.

And forget the notion that a cross-country race brake needs to mean skittish, on-the-edge-of-control performance, because the new XTR Race brake supplies surgically apportioned stopping power while still shedding 40 grams over its predecessor.

Want to race on a triple or boost your brake power even further? Don’t be afraid to personally tune your ride with components from the XTR Trail catalogue of cross-compatible options
