The XA Elite was born to meet the needs of trail riders who love to push the limits on challenging terrain. Lightweight, strong, and engineered to deliver confidence and control, it boasts purpose-built features for off-road performance. The first thing that sets the XA apart from the competition is the Maxtal rim. Our patented ISM 4D technology removes all but the most necessary material, so you get snappier acceleration and a more dynamic ride quality. A 25mm wide (internal) rim features UST technology with tubeless tape installed so it’s easier to experience the improved traction and control of tubeless tires.
The rims are laced to our proven QRM hubs for smooth, dependable performance no matter how rough the conditions. The new ID 360 freehub delivers fast engagement to further enhance the dynamic feel.
Innovative technologies boost control and confidence on the trail
- ISM 4D machining makes the wheel lighter without compromising strength.
- 25mm wide (internal) rim
- New ID 360 freehub system for quick pedal engagement
Proven strength and durability for off-road adventures
- 24 bladed straight-pull and double-butted spokes on front and rear
- Tubeless tape provides the lightest and simplest way to get tubeless benefits including better traction, comfort, and reduced risk of punctures.
Easy-to-use tubeless performance
- Using UST technology, the wheel comes prepared for easy tubeless setup.
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
