The super quick engaging freehub body means that every pedal stroke counts towards forward progression.

      Comments about Shimano XT M788 26" Wheelset:

      Been riding these wheels about a month and I'm impressed. Strong, light, and easily mounted some specialized purgatory 2.2 tires. Haven't had any significant leaks nor have I had to do any out of the box truing that you sometimes see with new wheelsets. The pawl engagement is solid and they roll great. A great wheelset for the price!

      Comments about Shimano XT M788 26" Wheelset:

      For the current sale price of $299, these can't be beat. They came perfectly true and tensioned, and with a rear skewer and front 15mm lockring. Tubeless tires were a cinch to mount with my floor pump. I'm not crazy about the anodized graphic treatment on the rims, but some might dig it.

      The rims are 21mm internal width. Better than most XC offerings, and holding my 2.3-2.5 tires well, but not quite as wide as the current crop of AM/trail stuff. But whaddya want for $299?

      The rear hub has quicker engagement than other Shimano hubs Ive used, and noticeably so. Cup and cone is old tech, but will last nearly forever with proper care and maintenance.

      Only ridden them about a month, but they've taken a moderate beating (5-ft. drops to flat about the worst so far) without a whimper.

          Comments about Shimano XT M788 26" Wheelset:

          I run these wheels tubeless, with great results. These were my first tubeless set, and I'm not going back to tubes. I had to buy a centerlock lock ring that fit the 15mm hub, but no other issues. I am very impressed with the strength, weight, and looks of these wheels. Strong buy rating!

            Used this set for 4 years and they were indestructible. I ride aggressively and was on a budget so durability was important. Recommended for its intended use.

              I think this is a great wheel set. I don't think that you can ever go wrong when it comes to the XT line. These are great out of the box, no need to true them. I like the simple design, in not one for flash, just function.

                    From my stock Bontrager wheels these XT shimano's is fantastic. They are my Go To Wheels. I'm running tubeless Tires and at very low tire pressure the handling is just incredible. The control is pure awesome. And coming down technical single track is a joy. My XT wheels came straight and true out of the box. I do wish the wheel had a little bit of Bling, perhaps more decal or something. At this price sold at Jenons is unbeatable. And, if you find them cheaper else where they will match it. I do not work for Jensons but I do buy from them a lot.
