e*thirteen Continue Push Into XC/Gravel With XCX Wheels

XCX Wheels are designed for iconic races like the Cape Epic and the BC Bike Race 

Well known as a staple of the All-Mountain/Eduro scene, e*thirteen have recently made a concerted effort into XC and gravel. Their new XCX wheelsets complete a ” trifecta of podium worthy gravel, trail, and cross-country components including the XCX Race Crank, the lightest production carbon crankset on the market.

While not the absolute lightest wheelset on the market, e*thirteen are targeting the lightweight yet durable space and touting the wheels as “designed for iconic races like the Cape Epic and the BC Bike Race”, two races which are notoriously hard on equipment.

The wheels XCX race wheels offer two variations. The XCX (IW24) internal width 24mm wheelset aimed at the cross-country rider, weighting in at a mere 1,350g. And the (IW28) internal width 28mm wheelset which comes in at only 1,520g and better suits trail riders using slightly larger tires.
