Designed for the style of riding you do, the WCS Trail 40 wheels confidently carve through all manner of rowdy terrain with accuracy, durability and control. These 650b hoops are light and stiff, yet durable and strong.

With 28 holes and a 25mm inner width, these tubeless wheels offer increased surface area for your tires to enjoy better traction on the trail.

With a new wider profile, the Trail 40 is highly capable and compatible with tire sizes from 2.4" to 3" that is an awesome addition to any XC or all-mountain build. It's also vailable in a BOOST option.
