    Shimano XT wheelset keeps going flat?

    Hey so not sure if any of you can answer my question, but my brother and I built a Yeti Arc for our older sister with a full XT build, the XT wheel set however keeps going flat, we've tried it with tubeless with stans, and we've tried it with tubes. We're using Hutchinson tires as it was our sponsor so, you know.. free tires, throw some onto her bike. Anyway, we've tried tubes and tubeless and over a matter of days, the tires keep going flat. We've tried all the usual fixes..
    Any tips?
    Thanks!!

    Which model XT wheelset are you using? The newer UST ones?

    Bad bead? I remember getting a flat over night because I couldn't get a bead to seal. This was with a tube.

    They go flat without the tubes being punctured?

    Me thinks is your valves (presta or schrader) that has a serious problem.
