Description

BRAND NEW & UNUSED 2017 RaceFace Turbine R 29" Wheelset. Front is 15x110 (Boost) and Rear is 12x148 Boost with SRAM XD Driver. Comes with tubeless valves as well. These are brand new and unused and came with my build kit.

These are beautiful and well-reveiwed wide-rim wheelset. 30mm interior width. 3 degree engagement for almost instant power transfer. Per RaceFace, the ranking of criteria when these wheels were designed was 1. Durability 2. Stiffness 3. Serviceability 4. Engagement 5. Weight 6. Cosmetics 7. Cost.

As you can see, cost was last in their priority. These are high end wheels at 1120USD / 1400+ CAD retail.

Pinkbike's review - https://www.pinkbike.com/news/race-face-turbine-wheels-review-2016.html

"It's a combination of features that makes the Turbine R wheelset a solid option for riders in the market for a new set of wheels. Wide, strong rims, a quick engaging hub, easily replaceable spokes, and a competitive weight all add up to a wheelset that should be capable of surviving even the hardest chargers out there."

VitalMTB rated as Outstanding! 4.5 stars - http://www.vitalmtb.com/product/guide/Wheelsets,44/Race-Face/Turbine-R,17879

"Vital would recommend Race Face Turbine R wheels to any rider looking to upgrade their current wheelset to one that offers superior rear wheel engagement, smart design, flawless performance, and excellent durability."

I have the brand new WTB Vigilante 29" 2.3 TCS Tough tires still on the wheelset, if that's something you'd like to add on (they are ~110 CAD each retail, but obviously I'd cut a smoking deal just to move them along - I'm a Maxxis Minion fan so have slapped those on my wheels).
