Race Face Turbine 30 27.5" Wheelset
A race ready XC wheel with a hard to be price point
The Race Face Turbine 30 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 30mm interal width rims will give your tires a nice wide foot print for increased traction and cornering. They're tubeless ready too. 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 30mm internal width means 2.3-2.5" tires fit well with good volume and profile.
Use these mainly as my winter wheels so not too concerned if they show signs of wear and tear but thus far still look decent.
Set up tubeless easily.
Only negative comment is the hubs aren't the smoothest spinning (bearing drag especially in the rear hub) but that's a minor niggle.

The rim seems to be good but the spokes are laced up in a way that they do not touch in the three cross pattern. Several spokes have come REALLY loose and I have to check them after every ride.
I believe they will warranty the axle but I really want my money back. It's been more of a hassle dealing with these issues.

The indifferent: 30mm inner width, straight pull spokes.
The bad: two spokes on the rear pulled right out of the nipples within two miles on a trail I've done a thousand times without incident. Ended up replacing all the nipples with Wheelsmith brass. Seems OK now.
The preload on the rear hub bearings is adjustable but doesn't lock in position. It's like I had a flashback to some Easton Havocs with hubs from hell.
Can't complain too much, since they came on a Banshee Rune that was a screaming deal from Jenson. Didn't expect I9 for the price.
