Shimano XTR M9000 27.5" Carbon Wheelset

Shimano XTR WH-M9000 Race 27.5" Wheelset

Shimano’s wheelsets are known for being perfectly balanced in performance and innovation, and the new XTR M9000 series wheels are no different. By focusing models on specific categories of mountain biking, the new XTR M9000 series wheels are optimized for your specific bike and your local terrain. The XC model (M9000) feature a 20mm internal rim width while the Trail model (M9020) is sporting a 24mm internal rim width, ensuring top-of-the-line XTR performance in whichever specification you need.

Leaner and meaner than ever, these tubeless mountain wheels feature carbon laminate rim technology, similar to that seen on currently model Dura Ace 9000 wheelsets; this makes the rim lighter than a full alloy rim with the added strength and durability provided by a carbon wheelset. A new bearing and axle system further lightens the load, shaving off an addition 33g from previous generation XTR wheelsets.

For as light as these wheels feel underfoot, the straight-pull spoke design with 28 spokes per wheel ensures they won’t flinch under hard, aggressive cornering either. And forget about all those “one-race” wheels with their dubious claims of gossamer weight and performance, because this hand-built, 1,600-gram wheelset draws on decades of podium-winning experience and is as focused and committed to performance.

Would recommend
Bought for a new build so haven't tried the wheels on the trail yet, though they arrived quickly and appear in perfect condition. Intended use is xc with occasional trail conditions and see no reason why these won't perform flawlessly.

Very nice wheelset, but the jury is still out.
The jury is still out. I rode these for the first time last night. Xtr wheels in general are awesome for several reasons - outlast all other high end wheel, stiff, light enough. Now, the issue with most wheels now is the width/tire ratio. These are on the narrow to mid width and I'm running Mavic Quest 2.4 tire, tubeless. Both tires burped with about 25lb of pressure. I'll try 32 next time out.

Terrain was aggressive up/down, rocky, 2 mile climb, fast decent.

Do you still need to add tubeless tape if you're going to run tubeless or no need?

BEST ANSWER: If the rims say there tubeless ready then you shouldn't need tape, I bought a set of ibis 941 carbon rims and they come tubeless ready/ with tape installed.
Would this be compatible with disc brakes?
A shopper on May 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These wheels MUST be used with disc brakes. They are compatible with Shimano centerlock disc rotors only, but beyond that you may use any disc brake system available today.
What else would I need to install these on my 2016 Giant Anthem SX with a 135x5 dropout? Thank you.
rolando on Apr 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Rolando, sorry, these are 142x12 Thru axle rear only. Shimano hubs cannot be converted to 135mm QR.
what is the recommended tire size for these? (m9000)
Moppy on Apr 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These are 20mm internal, optimized for XC, so your biggest tire that will work is going to be around 2.3-2.4". A 2.1" or 2.25" would probably be the optimal choice.
Is the SHIMANO ULTEGRA CS-6800 11-SPD CASSETTE compatible with the free hub?
el Toro on May 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, this wheelset will only fit 8/9/10 speed cassettes and Shimano MTB 11-40T, 11-42T and 11-46T cassettes.
What is the rider weight limit on these rims?
A shopper on Apr 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Shimano does not publish a weight limit for these, but with carbon rims, 250 lbs would be a reasonable upper limit.
