e*thirteen Launches All-New XCX Lightweight Carbon Wheels

e*thirteen's XCX Race cranks are the world’s lightest carbon MTB cranks, and the XCX Plus Cassettes bring exclusive wide range to the gravel world.

Today we are proud to introduce the all-new XCX Race Wheels, completing a trifecta of podium worthy gravel, trail, and cross-country components. Our two XCX Race Wheel offerings are designed for iconic XC races like the Cape Epic and BC Bike race. 

First, the IW24 wheelset is a cross-country rider’s dream at a mere 1,350g.


The IW28 wheelset comes in at only 1,520g, optimized for trail riders using slightly larger tires. All XCX wheels come with e*thirteen’s Lifetime Warranty, 6-degree hubs, and unrivaled performance.



HUBS

Both hubs featured on the XCX wheels use e*13's six-degree hub engagement and are available with either an XD or Microspline driver body. Regardless of the driver body, all hubs utilize a six-bolt rotor mount aboard our ultralight, machined aluminum hub shell.


All XCX hubs utilize Boost spacing and feature an all-new aluminum axle which sheds weight and simplifies service.


RIMS

The XCX Race uses a 24mm inner width to create the best profile for tires 2.0-2.3-inch wide, while helping to keep weight low. The taller rim profile maintains impact strength of a narrower internal width while improving aerodynamics.


Our XCX Plus wheels take advantage of a 28mm inner width to better suit trail tires in the 2.1-2.4-inch wide range. We have pared this to a shorter profile to keep weight low and impact strength high.


The XCX wheel line uses alloy nipples with washers. IW24 features DT Swiss Revolution triple butted spokes and the IW28 is built with DT Swiss Comp Race, triple butted spokes.
