Race Face Puts on Their 650B Face

New Turbine wheels for XC to AM uses straight pull bladed spokes in 650B and 29er. It’ll come with a 15mm thru axle front and 12×142 rear, with conversion parts available to run QR rear.  Rims have a 21mm inside width, 25mm outer, and 19mm height. They’re tubeless compatible, and they’ll offer a tubeless kit and XD driver as aftermarket options.  Hubs are their own, with full sealed cartridge bearings and a three pawl mech.  Price point is around $600, making them a good upgrade over a basic no name OEM wheelset or as a budget replacement. 1800g and 1880g depending on wheel size.



Race Face is also bringing back the 3pc design crank with the new NEXT SL carbon crank.   Oversized 30mm spindle with a replaceable ring or spider option.
