Mountain Bike Wheels

When it comes to riding off-road, there is no other component that has a bigger impact on performance than mountain bike wheels. Your wheels are your connection to the trail and having the right set can give you more control, better efficiency and rugged durability. We carry a large selection of mountain bike wheels—in all different diameters, widths, materials and designs—so you can find the perfect set for whatever type of riding you do.

Navigating all the different wheel options can seem like a daunting task, so it’s best to narrow down your choices in a process of elimination. First, what’s your wheel size? We carry 29”, 27.5” and 26” wheels. Second, what type of brakes are you using? If you’re riding a newer mountain bike, chances are it has disc brakes rather than rim brakes. From there it’s time to think about rim types. Carbon rims are prized for their light weight and stiffness, which can dramatically improve the way your bike climbs, accelerates and corners on the trail—but of course they cost more than wheels with aluminum rims. Width is important too, with the current trend moving toward wider rim diameters. A wider rim affects the shape of an inflated tire, giving it more air volume for better traction and stability.

Another factor in mountain bike wheels is choosing tubeless or regular inner tube style. Using inner tubes makes tire changes more straightforward but going tubeless has some major performance advantages. Combined with sealant, tubeless tires are far less likely to puncture, and you can run lower pressure so they roll faster with more control.

You also have hubs and spokes to consider. Generally, the more you spend, the lighter you can get. There’s plenty of technology to look at with mountain bike wheels, but the most important thing to consider is what type of rider you are. If you like to push the limits on aggressive terrain, look for something sturdy with a higher spoke count. If you prefer XC riding and racing, you can probably get away with lighter weight options. At Jenson USA we carry dozens of mountain bike wheel options from top brands like ENVE, DT Swiss, Industry Nine, Mavic, SRAM, and Stan’s NoTubes.
