Firmly standing in the plus category, the XM 1501 SPLINE ONE 40 enables these bikes to show their full potential when matched to the right plus size tire, not too light, not too heavy. Set up tubeless, such a bike has most of the possibilities of a fat bike while being light enough to be ridden very, very dynamically. Our rim profiles, wheel build, and hub technology are so elaborate, they will easily stand up to all the abuse such a plus bike is capable of. After all, this is just what we like to do and just what this wheel has been developed for.
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.
