    Product Spotlight: Excess Components XLC Wheelsets

    Excess Components have announced the release of their new range of wheelsets. The three levels available allow the wheels to fit your budget. While Excess’s last range of complete wheels didn’t set the world on fire, they did offer a reliable and cheap alternative to custom wheel builds.

    The XLC wheel range is a whole new approach. A rebuild from the ground up that has the potential to really change things up for Excess.

    What makes the XLC wheelsets different is their flexibility. The front hub can be converted from 10 to 20mm with an additional adapter. The v-brake configured wheels can also be converted to disc brake with an additional brake rotor adapter.

    Manufacturer’s Description

    We have 3 different wheel options to fit your needs for any level of racing. The XLC-1 wheels are the perfect upgrade for your race bike to lighten up your wheels and have a solid set up. The XLC-2 wheels features lightweight alloy rims with a Pro level rear cassette hub with 360 points of engagement, and the XLC-3 Carbon Fiber wheels are our top of the line, Elite level wheel set with 3K Carbon Rims and the high end 360 Points of Engagement in the rear cassette hub.

    On all of our Wheels in the 3 XLC lines, we also feature the ability for you to purchase an adapter to be able to upgrade the rear hub by adding a brake rotor adapter and convert the hub to use a disc brake. Also for the wheels in all the XLC lines, the front hub can be converted from 3/8″ to 20mm on the 20 Pro Lite / Pro and 24″ Pro Models with the purchases of an additional adaptor.
