Want to make cycling mountain bikes uphill more fun? The best and easiest way to do this is to get a new set of wheels, especially a set of lightweight high-quality carbon fiber mountain bike wheels. The issue with many lightweight wheels is that they lose their ability to be stiff as they have had too much material shaved away to make them light.
Not so with our wheels. We have used our leading carbon fibre technologies to make wheels that are as stiff as possibly can be and as light as they possibly can be. The lack of side to side movement is what you need in order to climb efficiently uphill, any sideways movement and your effort will be wasted. However, we still have some vertical deflection built into our wheels, without this deflection the wheels will not be able to absorb bumps in the trail. This is the carbon ride feel that you will heard fabled talk about.
In order to make it easier for you to pick a wheel to suit your needs, we have split our wheels into two categories, AM and XC. The AM wheels have a wider rim and a higher spoke count. This makes them slightly heavier and slightly stronger than the XC wheels. Pick the style that suits your riding style and then pick a size, 26er, 650b or 29er.
As well as size the wheels all come in a variety of axle sizes and freehub body designs to make sure they can fit any bike setup you may have. All wheels except for the 29er AM Enduro Carbon Wheelset come with Powerplay M81 hubs, the 29er AM Enduros coming with a comparable Novatec D772SB/D771SB.
