XT-wheels

Shimano has dived into the medium wheel sphere with their new WH-M785 Deore XT wheelset. We’ve got a set to test and Leif will be giving them a workout on the Avanti Torrent he is currently enjoying…

XT-front

15 mm up front, 24 straight pull double butted spokes and splined rotor interface.

XT-rear

142×12 axle out back, 10 speed freehub body, and 24 spokes as well…

XT-rim

Tubeless ready rims come in at a narrow-ish 19mm inner width. Check out Leif’s review in Issue 54 out December..

    19mm inner or outer width?

      That would be the inner width
