Xero Element PRO XAR-2 review

|

£495

The bearings feel stiff and fast on the gradients.

BikeRadar verdict

80.0 out of 5 stars

"Strong wheels and solid value"

Wednesday, May 31, 2006 11.00pm By

These bear a strong resemblance to Ksyrium SL but use 20 titanium spokes for the rear that are crossed on the drive side and 18 radial front spokes.

The cartridge bearing hubs have a quickly detachable cassette body for Campagnolo and Shimano systems and while new we have it on good authority that the bearings are made to last. They feel stiff and fast on the gradients in much the same way that the Mavic and Fulcrum wheels do here but for less money. The Price includes a set of skewers.
