Description

A new rim on the carbon block.

Well-known in the industry for producing bombproof wheels popular among all the dirt disciplines, WTB throws its hat into the carbon ring with the new Ci24 rims. Pairing WTB reliability with buttery smooth Chris King hubs, the WTB Ci24 TCS Chris King 27.5in Wheelset is here to shred some trail.

The Ci24 rims were two years in the making, and those two years were filled with countless tests and tweaks to create a rim that's strong in all the right places. WTB utilizes its 4D Drilling technology, which angles the spokes for even alignment of the nipple and hub flange to eliminate unnecessary lateral stress. This serves to increase the wheels' longevity and ability to handle load. Additionally, the Ci24's ample 24mm internal rim width provides a solid platform of support for confident shredding and pinch-free adventures.

These rims incorporate WTB's Tubeless Compatible System (TCS) profile and pair with TCS or UST tires for easy, reliable seating and excellent flat protection. They're also compatible with tubes if you catch trouble out on the trail or just feel like running old school for the day.

The Ci24s are laced to a set of Chris King's venerable ISO hubs The hubs are hand-machined in Portland, OR and boast in-house bearings and Chris King's patented RingDrive system for an unprecedented 72 points of engagement. Anyone who's had the pleasure of experience their signature buzz first hand knows that these hubs deliver snappy power while accelerating out of corners or trail furniture.

Do you know the weight of the wheelset?

Hey,



I do not have the exact weight on this one with the Chris King hubs. The wheels with Onyx hubs weight in at 1850g for reference.

Dissapointed

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I picked up this wheelset for Christmas, and was excited to get it set up. Since then however, it has been a series of frustrating disappointments. I have only ridden them 3 times.

First of all, the rear hub is slipping under power, which I have never experienced before and certainly did not expect from Chris King. Its like they suddenly disengage, which is kind of scary. I called Chris King to inquire and they told me the hubs are from 2015 -- apparently they have been sitting around for awhile.

Second, the rims display an alarming "bubbling" at the spoke holes. I am hoping it is merely cosmetic. Bike is currently at the shop - I am waiting to hear back on both the hub and the rims.

Dissapointed

IS the front hub a 15x100?
Does the rear hub fits 10 sp. cassette. I've a 2x10 XTR setup.

Hi Albert! The front hub is a 15x100 and you'll want to choose the Shimano/Sram option to work with that cassette.

Select option pull-down says front hub is 15qr.......is that meant to be 15 thru axle? Also, are tubeless valves and rim tape included?

Hi Kevin,



Yes, that is meant to be 15 T/A. This wheelset does not ship with valves/tape.

Does this wheel set come with a 12mm front axle option or does the hub come with additional end caps?

Since this is the Chris King mountain front hub, the only axle options are either 15mm thru or 9mm QR, which would be separate.
