Grit: The Grit is our endurance MTB wheel. If you ride long, fast, hilly trail rides, race XC or Marathon, or are weight and performance oriented, these are for you. The new Grit MTB rim uses the same 3D wound rim construction as our road wheels which reduces the weight significantly.

The rim is 28mm deep x 30mm wide x 25mm internal with a shallow hookless bead. The bead width is double the industry standard at 5mm, with a rounded, “soft” profile that has proven to be extremely effective at preventing pinch flats and sidewall cuts at aggressively low pressures in even the lightest single ply race tires.

The rims have in-molded spoke holes, not drilled, which increases strength. The rounded sidewall and square aspect ratio is designed to allow flex from the spoke bed up, while the build tension from spokes to hub delivery excellent stiffness. The result is a dependable, soft riding, stiff, very light (380gr) rim meant to win hard races. We believe that the Grit is the best MTB endurance wheelset on the market, at any price.

The Grit is built 28H 3 cross front and rear using Sapim CX Ray spokes in standard build. We can customize with a stiffer spoke upon request.

All wheels come tubeless taped with premium alloy valve stems installed, ready for you to mount tubeless tires. Valve stems will be color matched to nipple color where applicable. Quick release wheels will be provided with NEXT steel rod skewers for added security with disc brakes. Through axles are not provided with wheels as they are part of the bike frame system.
