    Info about P-XCR 1 wheelset?

    Looking for info about the P-XCR 1 wheelset, weight, specs etc.

    I know that you can find information around P-XCR Composite 0 but have anyone got the chance to get numbers on the P-XCR 1 wheelset?

    I was just at the local bike shop and they had a 2013 catalog. Weights were listed at 1750g. 24mm wide. Hope that helps.

    So around 200g more than a std Notubes Crest 29er rim with Stans 3.30 hubs (1575g), I guess you still want to upgrade the wheelset for racing.

    I was thinking the EXACT same thing...funny. I was using the wheel weight as the deciding factor between the lower end Advanced SL and the standard XTC 1. I am going to get the standard XTC 1 and some Crests. I think that will be a pretty good match.

    Is that weight for the 29" version or 26"?

    That's about the same weight as the Arch Ex 29 wheelset I'm looking to upgrade to. Is it as good as the Stans wheelset? What hubs are they using?

    ...actually, those are the production weights. Maybe allow for a manufacturing tolerance of 5%...

    What sort of rim strip and valves are needed for tubeless? Can you use the Stan's ones that work with their wheelsets?

    Anyone seen the Giant rim strips for these wheels?

    There is a thread somewhere discussing the P-XCR 2 and utilizing Bontrager Symmetrical rim strips with very good success. I also read that the Stan's Flow rim strips also work well as well as two layers of Gorilla tape (ghetto method).

    I just ordered an Anthem X Advanced with this wheelset. The Giant rep told my dealer that it will come with DT Swiss tubeless rim strips specific to these rims. I'll keep you posted.

    I've got some fresh news for you.

    Just got a P-XCR 0 29er set, weighed it at 1408g. Finish is immaculate. They come with the DT strips for UST certification. Will run front with DT, back with gorilla for testing purposes.

    Saw the P-XCR 1 29er set in the store - utilizes the same profile, also come with a strip.

    Can't wait to run the carbon P-XCR 0, will set them up as soon as possible.

    I picked up my Anthem with the P-XCR 1 Wheelset. Very nice build quality. DT internals with star ratchet, straight pull DT spokes, eyeletted rims, and they aired right up with a Nobby Nic front and Racing Ralph rear, both with Snakeskin casing.

    Hope to get out for a ride later this week if the snow stays away.

    Stock tires were snakeskin?

    That is something new, and an improvement in my opinion.

    No it came with the crappy RR with paper thin sidewalls. The shop swapped them out for manly tires. Sorry to disappoint.

    Well...although I've been running stock RRs on my XTC 29er for a season now (they are toast), I've routinely used regular folding Maxxis Crossmarks for rocky terrain races. I am pretty sure sidewall would be shredded to pieces if I had used them.

    For non-rocky terrain, they are fine, but manufacturers should know better to supply a do-it-all tire with 100g penalty, instead of a very light specialist.

    Agreed. But tires are a personal choice and they throw on the lightest tires so when the bikes are tested and weighed, they are as light as possible.

    I'm excited to try the NN/RR combo here in NJ for the winter.

    What did you pay for the rims? And what country are you in. I'm thinking about getting a set of these for my Anthem x0 but at more than 3 times the cost of a set of crests with a small weight penalty I coul trash a set or two and still be in Front. I think the carbon rims would be stronger though

    I am in Croatia - we've got a propulsive dealer here that listened to what I wanted so ordered the wheels early on. I will be fully testing the wheels and reporting findings in a local croatian magazine "Biker" this season, not only as race-day set but training also, although they will be in some 12 races.

    Price was close to US MSRP posted on the Giant page, in local currency. Crazy expensive, but I wanted to check the carbon wheels hubbub for myself, and compare it to aluminum options. I trashed a i19 wheel this year (I would say that the mistake of tacoing the wheel was mine) so I am eager to find out if carbon will make a difference.

    Just bumping this...

    I've got 100 miles on the P-XCR 1 wheelset on rocky NJ trails. I'm pleasantly surprised. I expected some flex with the 28H rims, but they have been great so far. Steering response is better than I expected, but my Anthem is also the first bike I've owned with a 15mm TA, so I'm sure that and the OD2 steerer have something to do with that as well. Hub engagement is fine as well after I upgraded to the 36T star ratchet.
