Minimum rolling resistance, maximum grip.

A new generation of XC wheels! Wide rims with low weight make for confidence inspiring and fast XC-/Trailbike wheelsets. The 30mm inner width are confidence inspiring on the downhills while minimizing rolling resistance on all surfaces. The NEWMEN FADE rear hub is significantly quieter compared to other hubs which, in combination with the X.A.30 rims, results in wheelsets focused on durability and light weight.

Milkit tubeless kit and NEWMEN strip included

NEWMEN Advanced SL X.A.25 and X.A.30 are the successors of our proven Advanced SL X.22 carbon fiber rim. We have set ourselves the target to create XC wheelsets which are as fast as possible while keeping the price reasonable. An important factor when pursuing seconds between the tape is rim width. Correct rim width is required in order to enable low tire pressures. This allows for maximum grip at minimum rolling resistance without squirming tires and reduced risk of rim strikes. For this reason we do not have one, but two successors for the X.22 rims. Our testing has concluded that, for XC purposes, 25mm inner width are ideal for tires up to 2.2"" and 30mm rims are ideal for tires from 2.25"" and upwards. By optimizing the wall thickness around the whole rim profile we have been able to achieve an industry-leading strength-to-weight-ratio and the high durability of the rim flanges allows for use on lightweight trailbikes. Shallow rim profiles provide comfort and grip while maintaining fast acceleration and responsiveness when putting power down.

All new Advanced SL wheels are based around the revised Evolution SL hubs with FADE freehub. This new design is strong enough for us to officially allow all FADE hubs for E-Bike use. At the same time we have developed a pawl geometry which reduces noise to a minimum because as we all know: A quiet bike is a fast bike. You can now litereally hear the tires gripping and during mass-start races your competitors won't hear you closing up. The hubs have double sealed bearings with minimal tolerances which are generously filled with grease because good durability means less hassle and more fun.

All carbon fiber rims are covered by a lifetime no-questions-asked 50% crash replacement - of course also for second or third owners. NEWMEN tubeless strips and a MilKit tubeless set is included with every wheel.
