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.
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
