YOUR NIMBLE PLAY

For those looking to optimise their ride and push for the next level - adding carbon to your XC wheelbase is the next logical step. Reset your climb to the tops faster, respond more dynamically on descent and move further in a day - on the trail or into the back country - with NS FREEBLAST.

Better handling due to lighter and more responsive wheels simply translates into increased performance, coupled with enough stiffness to make the set strong and able to optimally absorb impact. Durability is top of mind. DT Swiss competition Race straightpull system provides for effective power transfer, a must to materialize the enhanced traction features this set has to offer.

 

WHY?

// Stronger, more durable
// Reduced vibration, increased impact absorption, improves handling and maximizes grip and control in turns
// Supports peak loads and enhances stability and tracking at speed
// Lightweight, same effort takes you further
// Provides low accelerating mass and optimized rolling characteristics.
