A modern wide-profile rim made from super tough alloy, classy anodized and machined SPLINE straight pull hubs, and the proven Ratchet System freewheel make for no excuses when riding cross country on the X 1700 SPLINE. But in return it leaves enough cash in the wallet to enter your next endurance race.
Tubeless-ready rims are compatible with both standard and tubeless-ready tires. When a tubeless-ready tire is mounted on a tubeless-ready rim with special tubeless rim tape, valve, and sealant, the tire and rim form an airtight chamber that no longer requires a tube. This lets you run lower tire pressure with less fear of pinch flats and without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction and lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces. The rim can always be used with a tube, as well, by simply removing the tubeless valve stem and installing a standard tube like you would with any non-tubeless tire.
