Steezy trail hoops.

Long known for creating awesomely bombproof aluminum rims that are well-loved by trail riders and cross-country racers alike, WTB has stepped into the carbon ring to throw down with the Ci24 rims. Pairing WTB precision with silky smooth Chris King hubs, the WTB Ci24 TCS Chris King 29in Wheelset is here to rock the trail in style.

The Ci24 rims were two years in the making, and those years featured 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 nipples and hub flanges 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, which is designed to pair with TCS or UST tires for easy, reliable seating and excellent flat protection. They're also compatible with tubes if you run into 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. They're hand-machined in Portland, OR and included in-house bearings and Chris King's patented RingDrive system for an unprecedented 72 points of engagement. The rear hub's signature buzz is the soundtrack of responsive efficiency to snap up to speed out of corners.

shows front 15QR, i assume it's just standard 15x100 thru axle.

AJ,



Yes they are referring that to a 15x100 thru-axle. They classify it as 15QR because it has a lever to loosen the thru-axle instead of just a allen wrench head.

Can you guys make these with a boost rear hub?

Do these hubs have an end cap conversion kit to use with a rear 135 QR and a front 9 mm QR? Thanks.

Chris King hubs can be converted to various axle types, but you will have to swap the actual axle to go from T/A to Q/R.

A new axle is about $100 per wheel. CK has online instructions for the swap.

So far so good

    These are my first set of carbon wheels ,i wanted a set with chris king hubs as a big guy (260pnds) i dont want bearing issues . These wheels are stiffer by far then the name brand aluminun ones I had. The rim itself is wider so the foot print on my tires are wider .at this point ihave about 5 rides on them and i would recommend them to a friend .

    Looks like a great wheelset. However, it's tough to expect too much business at this pricepoint without any mention of weight...

    They weigh 430g (15.17 ounces) each, 860g (1 pound 14.3 ounces) for the set.

    Hey Nathaniel,

    We weighed them when we had them in our photo studio getting shot for the website, and the wheelset weight comes out at 1780 grams for the set. Not much heavier than a set of Enve 60/40 with King hubs which comes in at around 1700grams.
