On the trail less-traveled, where nature and the elements make the rules, lies a style of riding that’s firing the imagination of riders everywhere. Where the skills of dirt jumping and freeride combine with light weight long travel suspension to give new meaning to “cross country”
And a new breed of wheel is emerging to enable this off road adventure. The FSA XC-500 is all about this higher stakes mountain scene: disk specific, strong and quick, durable and smooth, tubeless ready, cutting edge. XC-500 is light enough for all day pedalling, but ready for real-world hazards encountered on “where’s the trail?” rides. Versatile, technically innovative, but bottom-line tough.
XC-500 rim is tubeless ready...no spoke holes, no rubber strips, no sealant, no messy work-arounds.
Description & Materials
XC-500 features a fully tubeless, disk specific, triangular shaped rim (24mm wide X 26mm deep). Made in 6061-T6 and cold worked after hooping for additional strength. Flat topped beads for pinch flat resistance. Direct pull, double butted spokes for long life and light weight. A super light, high tech hubset contains 6000 series high grade cartridge bearings and offers ISO rotor bosses. 1.95kg. Altogether, one of the most advanced off road wheelsets in many years.
