There's something incredibly pure about trail riding—the feeling of exploration and the satisfaction of cleaning a technical section are hard to beat. It’s just you versus the terrain, so you need gear that won’t let you down. XA wheels give you the confidence and control to enjoy the ride. They are built with an asymmetric, sleeved rim that’s wide (30mm internal), lightweight, and strong. They also feature our UST Tubeless Ready technology, which makes it easy to enjoy the benefits of tubeless tires, including better control and traction along with a reduced risk of punctures. Straight pull spokes save weight without sacrificing strength or durability. The hubs are fine-tuned with our new ID 360 freehub, which is compatible with all axle sizes as well as XD drivetrains. The wheels are compatible with most modern standards, such as 15x100/12x142 and can easily be converted to other options (9x100 front, 9/12x135 rear) with optional adapters. Added confidence and control on the trail - Wider rim allows more air volume in the tire for better comfort. - Straight-pull spokes reduce weight while ensuring optimal stiffness and reliability. Better comfort and traction, plus a reduced risk of punctures - UST Tubeless Ready design makes it easy to experience the benefits of riding without tubes. - Wheelset comes with UST tubeless valves and rim strips. Accessible entry point to Mavic technologies - Straight-pull spokes - New ID 360 freehub and lightweight sleeved rim design
Fastest XC Wheels In the Real World 1240 grams is an obscenely light weight when talking about mountain bike wheelsets, the kind of weight that XC racers dream about. But light weight alone is no longer enough. So, we engineered the new Control SL wheels to be sharp handling, smooth riding, extra durable, and 22% less likely to pinch-flat your tires, in addition to being some of the lightest weight production wheels on the planet. - Bearing Type: SiNC Ceramic Sealed cartridge - System Weight Limit: 275lbs / 125kg - Total Wheelset Weight: 1240g
WHAT IT'S FOR, WHY IT'S GREAT From weekend hot laps to World Cup XC finals, the Control Carbon combines the low weight and strength found in our world-beating Control SL rim with the new DT Swiss 350 hubs. An unmatched level of durability, precision, and performance in this new Carbon Control wheelset that is purpose-built to open terrain, from gut-wrenching climbs to tear-inducing descents—a whole new era of riding. A high-performance wheel that excels everywhere from world cup xc races to your favorite weekend trail. The Control Carbon combines the low weight and strength found in our world-beating Control SL rim with the new DT Swiss 350 hubs and spokes. This level of quality, precision and performance has previously been found only on wheels costing twice as much. ASYMMETRY BEGETS SYMMETRY The asymmetric design of the Control rim offers some subtle but important benefits. With the spokes offset to one side of the rim, this allows us to reduce the spoke offset that usually occurs at the hub. In turn, this means we can generate greater bracing angles for the spokes between the hub and rim, while also minimizing the spoke tension differential that often occurs between drive- and non-drive side spokes. The end result is a wheel that is stronger, laterally stiffer, more durable, and in the case of the Control, allows us to utilize the same length spoke throughout the whole wheelset. MINIMUM WEIGHT, MAXIMUM DURABILITY, EASY SERVICEABILITY Striking a no-hassle balance between low weight and low maintenance, we chose DT Swiss 350 Classic hubs (15x110mm thru-axle front, 12x148mm thru-axle rear) as the basis for the Control Carbon wheels. With sealed bearings, a notoriously durable 36-tooth ratchet, and 28 spokes front and rear, dependability is assured. QUALITY THROUGHOUT, FROM HUB TO SPOKE TO NIPPLE TO RIM There is absolutely no point in laying up an awesome rim and pairing it with a quality hub, only to skimp on spokes and nipples. So, keeping strength and dependability foremost in our minds, we opted to hold the Control Carbon wheel together with the best: DT Swiss Competition Race spokes and alloy Pro Lock nipples.
