Wheelworks Flite Carbon Version 2 Trail Wheelset 27.5"

Size Chart

The ultimate carbon wheelset: Massive grip, feather weight, and guaranteed for life including impact damage

The Flite Carbon Trail wheelset truly is the perfect all-rounder, and a personal favourite amongst staff and ambassadors alike. Impressively light for great accelerations and steep/lengthy climbs balanced with perfect stiffness for ultra-stable, enduro-like descending, it’s easy to see why it’s our most sought after product.

To improve your riding experience we’ve designed the tubeless rims wide enough to suit modern mountain bikes and modern tyres, but not so wide as to square-off tyres and create extra rolling resistance.  We’ve pushed the industry’s best carbon rim producers to create rims that meet our high standards of exceptional durability, so we can back them with our lifetime warranty.

Durability is only one part of the story, at a mere 460g per rim and matched to DT Swiss Aerolight spokes (only available on the Flite range), the Flite Wide Carbon Trail is the perfect blend between enduro strength and XC weight.

Intended Use: This wheelset is designed to partner with a 140mm Trail / Enduro frame for aggressive trail riding on mixed terrain, and includes a comprehensive lifetime warranty for this type of use which includes impact damage.
