A practical and efficient wheelset, the 2011 Shimano MT15 wheelset features an angular contact bearing system also known as the cup and cone.
Since it uses angular contact bearing system, this awesome Shimano wheelset offers a longer lasting lifespan compared to other wheelsets out there, including both the semi-sealed as well as the sealed variations. This of course will be done with proper care as well as regular greasing and precise adjustments to the wheelset.
A word of caution, though, the Shimano MT15 wheelset will be more suited for riders that takes extra care of their wheelsets and not for riders who simply store their bikes when not in use.
The Shimano MT15 wheelset also sports a 25mm rim that’s bigger than most wheelsets available to the market right now as well as 28 spokes. You might want to invest in adaptors in the case where you have a bike with a six-bolt rotor since the wheelset is also designed to carry a Centerlock disc mount. Also included in the set is a pair of quick release skewers for the wheelset.
The set is currently priced at $208.72 in cycling stores.
