There's something incredibly pure about trail riding—the feeling of exploration and the satisfaction of cleaning a technical section are hard to beat. It’s just you versus the terrain, so you need gear that won’t let you down.
XA wheels give you the confidence and control to enjoy the ride. They are built with an asymmetric, sleeved rim that’s wide (30mm internal), lightweight, and strong. They also feature our UST Tubeless Ready technology, which makes it easy to enjoy the benefits of tubeless tires, including better control and traction along with a reduced risk of punctures. Straight pull spokes save weight without sacrificing strength or durability. The hubs are fine-tuned with our new ID 360 freehub, which is compatible with all axle sizes as well as XD drivetrains. The wheels are compatible with most modern standards, such as 15x100/12x142 and can easily be converted to other options (9x100 front, 9/12x135 rear) with optional adapters.

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.
