Shimano’s 29er wheel

Shimano used the Handmade Show to unveil its 29er wheel. The nine in the graphic is a snake. Snakes eat frogs; if that’s an indication, the competition should look out. The wheels are built on a XT platform with 24 spokes, a 7075-T6 aluminum rim and XT freehub body. The set weighs 1810 grams and will be available in July.
