Race Face Turbine 27 27.5" Wheelset
A race ready XC wheel with a hard to beat price point
The Race Face Turbine 27 27.5" wheelset offers XC and Trail riders a hardworking, no-nonsense set of wheels. The lightweight but strong rim is laced with burly straight-pull, bladed spokes that give the wheel a stiff and responsive feel. The 27mm internal rim width provides a good balance weight and tire volume. The rims are tubeless ready as well to keep the weight down and flats away. The heart of any wheelset is its hub and the Turbine wheel has a strong heart indeed. The hubs feature a robust design, running on custom cartridge bearings that mean quick and true hub engagement while still staying light and fast for those long epic trail rides. The Turbine wheelset is ready to take you wherever your sense of adventure might lead.

The hubs seem fine, particularly at this price point. My rear hub had 35 points of engagement and the radially laced, bladed spokes are a nice touch.
The only problem with these wheels (and this is the case with every other set I have that uses these rims, is that the OEM plastic tubeless wheel tape is this clear plastic stuff. It's not very good. It has only ever lasted me one tire change before the Tubeless Fluid starts getting underneath the overlap of the wheel tape. The only way to really solve this is to remove the OEM clear plastic wheel tape and replace it with good old fashioned gorilla tape. This is why I gave these only four-stars instead of five - the wheel tape could be improved.
