The XC Wheelset


Australian Dollars (free shipping)

Improved ride feel

The XC wheelset stands up to the rigours of technical XC racing, light trail riding and won’t let you down on long days in the saddle.  Light at 1450g, but reliable – that’s the aim of The XC wheelset which is why they are built with DT Swiss hubs and brass nipples.

Why brass nipples and not aluminium?  They weigh only 20g more per wheel and the payoff is better longevity,  strength it’s a no brainer!

25mm Internal, UST Tubeless ready

The XC wheelset has a 25mm internal width and UST tubeless design (no rim tape ever).  Asymmetric rim profile allows for more even spoke tension to produce a stiffer wheel with lightweight spokes.

Lifetime Warranty with no bullshit

The XC Black Crow Carbon carbon rim has a lifetime free replacement warranty for the original owner and a transferable crash replacement warranty to consecutive owners if you decide to sell them

24 hour Warranty turn-around

If you manage to crack a rim, no worries, no BS, no confusing process just get in touch pay the postage for a replacement rim and it’ll be immediately sent straight out from Australian stock.  No long lead times!
