The XA Elite WTS offers high technology, simplicity, and fun in a strong, light, tubeless-ready wheel-tire system.
- ISM4D machining makes the wheel lighter without compromising on strength
- 25mm internal width rim with hookless profile
- Tubeless tape on wheels: the lightest and simplest way to get the tubeless benefits such as better traction, comfort, and reduced risk of flats
- Includes Quest Pro tire, 29 x 2.35"
- Light and strong, single-ply casing with Guard protection
- X-mix dual compound: safe grip and rolling efficiency
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
