Wider 29er XC SL Wheelset – BF33/28


Please note: Full 2 year manufacturers warranty on all parts. However, we do not offer free lifetime crash replacement on these wheels due to the rim width being very similar to our enduro wheelsets. These are still very tough rims with strength far exceeding the needs of XC. If you ever were to damage a rim we will rebuild the wheel with a new rim for £180. 

Free UK Delivery on all Wheelsets

Wheels are supplied in every hub fitting and freehub combination. They are delivered tubeless ready with colour matched Muc-Off tubeless valves, Muc-Off rim tape and even 300ml of Muc-Off sealant in the box. Please specify your choice of one or two rim graphic colours in the order notes during checkout – most colours available – see our GALLERY for some ideas

With a modern 28mm internal width and weighing as little as 1400g for a 29er wheelset, our latest asymmetric XC wheels give the best of all worlds. You will notice huge improvements to the feel and handling of your bike – so much more than just the weight saving in comparison to alloy rims.

Only available as 29er on the website but if you require 27.5 please ask. 

Please note that we highly recommend brass nipples as the extra longevity these provide over alloy is well worth the 40g weight penalty. However, as most competitors offer alloy nipples as standard we are offering them as an option in order to keep weight comparrisons on a level playing field

Approx weights for wheelsets (including rim tape and tubeless valves):

Bitex hubs:          alloy nipples = 1400g       brass nipples = 1440g

Hope Pro 4 hubs:  add 100g to Bitex wheelset weights

I9 1/1 hubs:   add 80g to Bitex wheelset weights

I9 Hydra hubs:   add 50g to Bitex wheelset weights

Rims are constructed from unidirectional Toray T700 carbon and have a hookless bead inner profile. They are asymmetric to give closer to equal spoke tensions on each side of the wheel for an even stiffer, stronger wheel.

We build our wheels on Hope, Bitex and Industry Nine hubs, which we believe stand out from the crowd and both with their particular strengths unmatched by any other brands – reliability, longevity and serviceability being a high priority with all designs. Our wheels are built to last and our choice of hubs reflects this along with our insistance on only using brass nipples.

28 Sapim CX Ray spokes make up each wheel. These are the lightest, strongest and most expensive spokes on the market used by the likes of ENVE and Zipp. How many other spokes on the market are light enough for carbon road wheels and strong enough for World Championship winning downhill wheels?!

Until you have ridden with carbon wheels you cannot appreciate the huge advantages in handing and ride quality they offer. Stiffer rims improves steering accuracy, tracking and speed while the vibration absorbing properties of carbon smooth out your ride and your bike will ride noticeably quieter.

Prices include free UK delivery.
