The Shimano MT55 29er wheelset is made to meet the demands of the everyday trail rider. It prizes strength, durability and performance. The MT55 features many technologies that are found on much higher end wheels at a fraction of the cost, like welded rim joints for strength and a 21mm inner rim width, making the MT55 perfect for today's high volume tires. Shimano also makes their own spokes so they can control quality and uses straight pull for the MT55. This allows greater tension on the wheel, so they are stiffer in corners and offer greater stability while turning and acceleration which is cruscial for a 29er wheel. Shimano's Cenerlock interface is the lightest on the market for disc brakes and also easy and secure. When you need a wheel that can get the job done without any fuss, the Shimano MT55 29er wheels will get it done.
