Bontrager Race X Lite (RXL)Tubeless Wheelset

Bontrager Race RXL Tubeless Wheelset Features:

Thanks to a scandium alloy rim they’re light where it matters so acceleration is keen and immediate. The alloy freehub picks up drive faster than most to amplify responsiveness.

Eyelets and off-centre ‘OSB’ spoking on the rear mean they’re not waif-like in strength and small recessed rim dots keep tabs on wear.

WEIGHT 1560 GRAMS

ORIGINAL PRICE. 750 $

Tubeless is the way

It’s kind of funny how long it took for tubeless road wheels to make the scene. Now, after only a couple of years on the market, riders are warming up to the idea of tubeless road tires. So much so that Easton has announced a wide selection of tubeless-ready rims for 2014. That’s great news for Bontrager and other tubeless-compatible wheelset manufacturers because tire selection will improve and prices may drop as well.

The Bontrager RXL wheels are a standard clincher wheelset . The rim strips are actually a tight fit inside the rim and require some care to install. Don’t get too anxious to set the rim strips in place or you’ll get the valve hole placement off — even though you started it correctly. To avoid any valve hole creep, I’d suggest placing that section in first and then seating the valve. This will ensure that the rim strips stay where they should. Believe me, adjusting the rim strips — even a mere 1/4″ — is difficult after they are in place.

Eyelets and off-centre ‘OSB’ spoking on the rear mean they’re not waif-like in strength and small recessed rim dots keep tabs on wear. The freehub can be pulled apart without tools for servicing, but apart from some scuffing of the white painted spokes our long-term sets have had zero issues.
