Show Description

The Race Face Turbines are strong and lightweight rims designed for cross-country and trail riding. They're laced with burley straight-pull, bladed spokes that give the wheel a stiff and responsive feel. The heart of any wheelset is its hub, and these feature a robust design, running on custom cartridge bearings that mean quick and true hub engagement while still staying light and fast.

  • 6061 alloy rims are tubeless compatible (tubeless conversion kit sold separately).
  • Black stainless steel spokes are straight pull and bladed for a stiff, responsive feel.
  • Spoke nipples are brass.
  • Hubs feature sealed, custom cartridge bearings that provide quick, sure hub engagement while remaining light and fast.
  • Rear hub is XX1 driver compatible. It features a tough 3 pawl design and comes with a 9/10 speed freehub body (Shimano/Sram).
  • Hubs come spaced as front 15 x 100mm and rear 12 x 142mm. Included end caps adapt them to fit rear 10 x 135mm or 12 x 135mm.
  • Water slide decals complete the polished look.
