Speed talks.

Wagon wheels, hula hoops—call them what you want, but 29-inch wheels are fast. They've also been around long enough that we definitely know that they're not going to be replaced any time soon. So, whether you've already pulverized your original wheelset, or you're just ready to upgrade, we recommend Shimano's venerable Deore XT WH-785 29-inch Wheelset. You can afford a little grin as you blow by the 26-inch faithful knowing that your wheels are just as solid as theirs.

Starting from the inside out, Shimano built the WH-M785s around its Deore XT hubs. These hubs feature sealed bearings for virtually maintenance-free operation in any riding conditions. They also feature a 15mm QR up front and a standard 10x135mm quick-release at the rear. The hubs are also Center Lock-compatible. Shimano uses butted (2.0-1.5-2.0), round straight-pull spokes. And as for the rims, Shimano made sure that they're optimized for both durability and lightweight through their aluminum construction, 19mm depth, and 23.4mm width. Shimano recommends tire widths of 1.5- to 2.25-inches. The rims are, of course, UST-compatible.

The Shimano Deore XT WH-M785 29-inch Wheelset is available in the color Black and with a 15mm quick-release front wheel (axle not included) and a 10x135mm quick-release rear wheel.
