Traildog carbon XC

£790.00 / pair

Go faster and further with our new lightweight XC carbon wheelset. Stiff and responsive with 25mm internal rim width and weights as low as 1366g for 29er wheels. 29er rims are expected back in stock late April.


This fast and tough wheelset for cross-country riding and racing follows on from our ever popular Gecko gravel/CX wheelset with a wider, stronger rim suited to XC tyres from 2.1″ and larger. The wheelset features our usual choice of hub options with centre-lock or 6-bolt disk mounts available as well as straight-pull or traditional J-bend spokes.

weights from 1300g/pair (650b) and 1366g/pair (29er).

Hubs are 6 pawl, 48 point engagement hubs with premium stainless bearings, rims are asymmetric for maximum strength and stiffness at low weights, and are tubeless ready – supplied with tubeless tape fitted, valves available separately. The rims have a matt UD finish and no braking surface. Recommended tyre sizes are 2.2″ to 2.5″.

The wheels are finished with tubeless rim tape but valves are extra. A crash replacement scheme applies to all JRA carbon wheelsets.
