Shimano WH-MT601 – 27.5 Inch Rear Wheel – Centerlock – 12x148mm Boost – Micro Spline 12-speed
The Shimano WH-MT601 wheels bring robust performance to any trail. The aluminum Tubeless rims feature double butted J-bend spokes that are laced to hubs with Centerlock brake disc mounts and deliver fast acceleration for more fun on the trail. A Micro Spline freewheel makes it possible to install Shimano 12-speed cassettes.
The Boost version with a wider over locknut dimension of 148 mm offers better maneuverability for a more aggressive riding style. At the same time wheel rigidity is improved providing higher traction for better cornering and climbing.
The aluminium freewheel with 22 evenly spaced teeth keeps the cassette firmly under control for immediate response and also allows the use of a 10 teeth sprocket. In addition, the smaller and compared to the usual Hyperglide freewheel bodies more extensive gearing prevents rotor damage.
