e*thirteen maintains a low-profile compared to some brands, but they've had a big influence on the evolution of mountain biking. Sponsoring some of the sport's biggest names and toughest customers has enabled e*thirteen to refine and innovate until perfection is achieved. With the release of the TRS Race Carbon 29" Wheelset, e*thirteen has once again set the standard for race performance.
Created for the highest level of enduro racing—the Enduro World Series—the TRS Race Carbon wheels take serious abuse without complaint. But, a beefy rim by itself isn't enough to make the podium; a wheel has to be stiff, responsive, and explosive too. At 1703 grams (29"), the TRS Race wheel is capable of blasting accelerations, crucial when searching for seconds to separate yourself from your competitors. Of course, coming out of a turn with speed gives you more of those seconds in the first place, and the TRS Race Carbon is built to do just that. Wide and robust, the rim is stoutly laced with 28 three-crossed, stainless spokes: stiffness and accuracy are not weaknesses of the TRS Race Carbons. The wheels by themselves are going to up your game, but we recommend mounting up the TRS Race or TRS+ tires that were designed with these rims in mind.
The TRS Race's hubs are e*thirteen's bread and butter design—the oversized, carbon bonded tube and tall alloy flange has been tested and proven for years. 60 point engagement puts power to the drivetrain after only six degrees of crank movement for decisive accelerations.
