MTB
Weighing just 1685g, Red metal 3s will tackle any climb while the sturdy tubeless rim, oversize hub and the steel straight-head spokes guarantee easy steering, high manoeuvrability and maximum reliability however hard you ride. 

Rims

  • Milled Rim: The milling process provides excellent lateral stiffness at a low weight for an agile, reactive riding feel.
  • MoMag Magentic Spoke guide: The spoke nipples, are inserted inside the rim through the valve hole and guided into place with a magnet. This means a uniform rim profile with no holes or weaknesses for improved strength, longevity and weight.

Spokes

  • Variable Section Steel Spokes: These allow a very high spoke tension for maximum stiffness and reactivity.
  • Aluminium Nipples: reduce the peripheral mass (rolling weight) of the wheel to the minimum, thus increasing its response and acceleration.
  • 2:1 Spoke Configuration: On the rear wheel the number of spokes on the drive side is double that of the opposite side. This gives greater stability, torsional stiffness and reactivity thanks to the perfect balance between the spoke tensions. The front wheel spokes have been doubled on the disc brake side; this keeps the wheel steady when braking.


Hubs

  • Oversize Aluminium Hubs: These provide a high degree of lateral stiffness and enhanced torque transmission for fast, efficient power transfer and impact resistance.
  • Oversize Drive Side Flange: This further improves torsional stiffness and reactivity under pedalling.
  • Fully Sealed Bearings: exceptional quality and smoothness; high ef?ciency over time and resistance to dirt and grit.
  • 20mm Aluminium Pin: extremely lightweight with very high rigidity for improved steering precision. Please note: this is not a 20mm thru axle system.
  • QR/15mm Thru-Axle front wheel adaptors: These allow the front wheel to be compatible with standard Quick release forks and 15mm thru axle designs.
  • Syntace X-12 135/142mm rear wheel adaptors: These allow the back wheel to be compatible with both 135mm and 142mm dropout spacings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A worthwhile upgrade These were my choice for my BMC Sportelite which came with tough but rather heavy Alex RimsTD17. Wow! ... they are a huge improvement.... light but strong, smooth and silent bearings that have added a sprintier feel to my bike. I also feel the shocks work better as these wheels are nice and stiff, stiction is less. The graphics are good but I do wish they were laser etched or printed onto the rims... they are merely very nice stickers. True though of most others including some famous name shocks. You buy a £30 seat post and it is superbly printed with a logo that will not peel off, spend many hundreds and it's stickers ! The UST system seemed a leap of faith ( these wheels are Universal System for Tubeless only and will not work without the matching tyre type). I chose Onza Canis 2.0 and they are an excellent match. Having no tubes felt risky at first but that was 500 miles ago. 02 May 2014

Hi, I have a 2011 Giant Anthem X1 with Fox 32 forks (15mm through axle) up front and the rear of the frame has standard vertical rear dropouts (10mm x 135mm QR skewer). From the description I gather that the front wheel has the option for a 15mm through axle, but I'm confused with the rear. Does the rear wheel have a 10mm/135mm QR option? I was thrown off by the Syntace X-12 135/142mm rear wheel adaptor which made me think that the rear wheel was designed for 12mm through axles only. Much appreciated.

Answer: 
The rear is for 135mm x 10mm skewer. You receive push-in adapters for the front wheel so 9mm skewer or 15mm through axle but not 20mm. Had mine 6 months.... a great upgrade.
