ATB Sales has just taken delivery of an in-house designed Whyte carbon 29er wheelset, that is both Maxle and Shimano E-thru axle compatible.
Rolling on cartridge bearing hubs, laced to a high modulus UD rim with 1K outer ply, Whyte decided to pursue the production of its own larger wheelset feeling that most complete 29er bikes are let down in spec largely by the wheels. The High Modulus, fine mesh rims are resistant to high impact stone chips that can cause surface cracks – Whyte says the final layer acts as a ‘blast skin’.
The wheels are a 28 hole front and 32 Hole rear three Cross spoke build.
DT Swiss Competition Double spokes with alloy nipples finish the package, which will retail for £999 for the XT skewer set, while the standard set will come in at £949. Whyte Nylon rim strip designed specifically for these rims are included.
