XCX Race 320 GRAM RIM, 1280 GRAM WHEELSET

XCX Race Carbon

The pinnacle of performance gravel wheels, made for riders who still wanna get rowdy between races. The Race configuration uses a deeper, carbon rim profile formed with the same processes as our World Cup DH rims, but at a mere 320g. With alloy nipples and double butted spokes, there are no extra grams to shave off— unless you wanna ditch the stickers. Forget training on beaters and saving your carbon for race day, the XCX Race Gravel wheels will give you the edge in competition, and take every hit in between.

Roll Out The Features

Reliable Performance

Lifetime Warranty Helix R Cassette Compatability
Carbon rims carry a lifetime, no questions asked, free warranty replacement. Things break sometimes, especially when riders push the limits. Mistakes happen when those limits are pushed so we’ve engineered the carbon rims to fail but maintain tubeless seal.
Smart Design Helix R Cassette Performance
Adventure rides can have heavy consequences on equipment. Our unique captive endcap thread allows for quick, tool-free removal of the cassette and freehub if spoke replacement is needed. The 6 bolt brake rotor interface provides superior reliability and easy maintenance with a multi-tool.
Quick-Fill Valves Helix R Cassette Cost Savings
Our new quick-fill valves use the same dependable attachment system as their predecessors, but with a new 3-piece design that allows riders to separate the stem and valve core by hand, with the body of the valve still tight on the rim. This allows for clean and easy sealant injection— just unthread the barrel, insert a nozzle from a squeeze bottle of sealant and fill your tire, then thread the barrel back on and pump it up.

XCX 490 GRAM RIM, 1820 GRAM WHEELSET

XCX Aluminum

These wheels prioritize reliability and utility over all else, for the adventure gravel rider who intends to hammer their bike all season, all over the map. This build uses aluminum rims with class-leading strength, and brass nipples for buttery smooth maintenance and corrosion resistance. Big hub flanges provide better spoke triangulation for an overall stronger wheel. Chase the sun down past the horizon, train in the rain, load your racks and never come back– the XCX gravel wheels are ready for it.
