Shimano XT WH-M778 Disc UST Wheels

Tired of changing tubes every ride? Make the leap to tubeless. The Shimano M778 XT wheelset allows you to go tubeless without packing on the extra grams. Compatible with your 8/9/10 speed set- up, this is the perfect upgrade to your XC/ trail bike. You won’t feel any flexing as you are slashing through the singletrack. The 15mm front axle increases the lateral rigidity, and makes sure your front end stays where you put it. The 4 pawl design freehub body means quick reliable engagement which is imperative whether you are sprinting to the finish, or climbing to the top of a monstrous hill. Rear wheel contains a M775 hub, not a M778.

    I like these wheels so far, using them on my Giant Trance, and shaved about 350 grams. them have held up so far, along with a trip to Snow Summit. These do not have convertible axles though like many other companies are doing.

    great rims, hub seals average

    Pros

    • Stiff
    • Strong

    Cons

    • Hub Seals

    Best Uses

      Comments about Shimano XT WH-M778 Disc UST Wheels:

      great rims:- stiff, strong, seal up tubeless easily. finished a race on a rim alone, once, and they hardly marked. Hubs were fine at first, then rear hub kept seizing up every 100 -200km or so. Tried to lube, took to many mechanics, changed internals. In the end it seemed that the seal wasn't mounted properly or had been damaged. Don't roll as well as my DT hubs, either.

      Comments about Shimano XT WH-M778 Disc UST Wheels:

      My tubless ready tires mounted on the rims by hand and floor pump. A little stans sealant and they where ready to go. 200 miles and they are still rolling straight.

      I love XT components. I have a complete grouppo on my new Yeti SB-66. These wheels are excellent. They are strong, light and durable. They are also tubeless ready which is how I run my tires. You can't beat them.

        I used these on full suspension bike when I want to ride downhill trails, drops, jumps. They are light for 3 hr rides, and strong for my Downieville Downhills. Great UST system-I don't even use tire levers! Set beads with floor pump(Tubeless Ready).
