Bearings are an essential component of wheels and it's important your bearings perform as you want them to. All of our wheels come with fast endurance bearings as standard. These bearings are fast, and designed to stand the test of time so you can ride as much as you want, with confidence your bearings will keep spinning smoothly.

Spokes and Nipples

  • The SILT XC wheels use the Pillar PSR XTRA as they are considered to be the most aerodynamic spoke on the market. At 4.7g each, they are strong and incredibly lightweight which means we can build you a responsive wheel set that allows you to get up to speed faster
  • The unique drawing and specifically pressed process produces fast, bladed Aero spoke (2.0mm - 0.9/2.2mm - 2.0mm)
  • Pillar Patented cold forge technology. Up to 30% less weight without compromising on strength.
