    WTB SX 19 wheelset

    Does anybody know much about the WTB SX 19 29er wheelset that come on many Norco cross country bikes? Can't find out much about what the components actually are. Have heard its a Norco hub and a wtb speed disc rim but cant confirm that and have no idea what the weight/strength of the components are.

    My 2013 Charger 9.1 has the WTB SX19 29" 32H DW rims. The front hub is a Shimano HB-RM35 CenterLock Disk and the rear is Shimano FH-RM35 CenterLock Disc. The wheels are stock (my tires are not stock), but I will be replacing them within the next year.

    My one complaint (after very limited use so far: less than 10 km) is that the wheels are just too skinny for my taste.

    I don't have any numbers for the weight/strength. Sorry.

    Would you agree that these are actually speed disk rims with a different label on them? Wanting to go tubeless (ghetto if possible) and would love to know what these rims actually are so I know which method to try first

    I don't know if they're the Speed Disk rims or not. I've email WTB to find out. My husband's Kona Kahuna has the WTB SX23 rims. I've asked for clarification with regards to both the SX19 and the SX23: whether or not they are the Speed Disk, and the specifications if they aren't the Speed Disk.

    I'll post the details of WTB's response (if they respond).

    Sorry it took so long. I just received the info from wtb this morning.

    They are a completely different rim from the Speed Disk.
