Tubeless compatible rim. The rims developed with the Shimano tubeless sealing system, are the combination of a clincher rim bead with a UST profile for tubeless tyres. A special rim tape comes with caps for rim holes and sealant. This gives you the superior sealing of UST and a simple and reliable rim tape profile.

Digital Cone Bearing Adjustment System
The digital bearing adjustment system allows easier maintenance, simple adjustability and serviceability. Base on a digital adjustment without a double lock a 5 mm hex key is all that is required to make a precise bearing adjustment.
