Shimano XTR

Q & A


Finally a race wheel that can be used everyday; Shimano's new M985 XTR 'Race' wheelset weighs in at a featherlight 1476g / pair yet is durable enough to withstand daily cross country riding thanks to years of racing pedigree and countless podium wins combined with a lengthy development process and the application of the most advanced wheel building and materials technology available.

The 19c (23.3mm) wide Scandium light alloy rim weighs in at just 350g is dent resistant and UST tubeless compatible, and is laced to the high quality angular contact bearing hubs using 24 straight pull butted spokes to eliminate stress points and minimise the risk of breakage. The hubs themselves (aside from being straight pull specific rather than having a traditional flange) are exactly the same as those available separately and use Shimano's tried and tested angular contact cup and cone bearing system which alongside offering immense lateral and radial load bearing capabilities, simplifies maintenance and ensures quick adjustment to ensure they are always performing at their absolute best. Additionally the Cubic Borozon ground bearing races and high-grade stainless balls provide the ultimate low-friction rolling surface whilst double contact sealing with internal grease sleeves helps keep water and dirt out of the bearings and the grease in, ensuring consistent smoothness and longevity.

The forged and anodised hub shell places the bearings widely apart for maximum rigidity and houses the lightweight, strong and ridged hybrid alloy axle with integrated cone. whilst a titanium freehub body on the rear wheel helps to reduce weight but avoids the issues caused when using aluminium and non carrier equipped cassettes.

The M985 XTR Race wheels are available to fit front and rear, and come supplied with a high quality quick release and wheel bag, whilst a 15mm front axle option is available (axle not included) for those running thru-axle cross country forks. Shimano's splined centre-lock disc standard provides easy installation, whilst an adaptor is available separately for use with traditional 6-bolt rotors.

Average Weight (Front): 674g
Average Weight (Rear): 802g
