White Industries H3 hub shell design is a high/low flange which allows for a more even and better spoke tension with a hub spaced to 130mm. Unique to the H3 is our titanium freehub body in a choice of Shimano or Campy configurations. Titanium is a great choice in the freewheel application since it is nearly as light as aluminum and has the equivalent strength to many forms of steel. Made in the USA!

A new set of light wheels are a key to improved performance of your bike. This is especially true for cross country riding on 29ers, where riders search for more acceleration on climbs, speedy descents, decisive handling and faster rolling on the flat. The design of the new tubeless 26mm wide x 23mm deep rim which is wider, stiffer and supports the tire better for more ground control. Bead barb technology hooks on the tire bead to help keep the tire in place. Wheels are tubeless with our pre-installed AC 25mm tubeless tape and AC valves, and use your favorite tires with sealant. The wheels can also be ridden with a regular tire and tube setup.

American Classic’s MTB 29 wheels include a rim strip and red valves making them ready for some tubeless riding.
