Syncros has released two new Revelstoke carbon wheels, aimed to be tough enough for enduro riding but still light enough to be trail friendly.

Both wheels feature the same 28h carbon rim and the top of the range Revelstoke 1.0s is claimed to weigh a very impressive 1,500g for the wheelset. If this weight is accurate, it could be one of the lightest of the best mountain bike wheels that are rated durable enough for all-mountain or enduro riding. 

The new wheels are said to take inspiration from the brand's successful Silverton XC wheels, featuring a shallower rim profile and new carbon layup to reduce weight, increase compliance, and improve lateral stiffness. The rims feature a 30mm inner rim diameter and the hookless wall thickness has been increased to improve impact resistance.

The lightest Revelstoke 1.0s have DT Swiss 240s hubs with Ratchet EXP 36 technology and DT Swiss Aerolite spokes and Pro Lock nipples build. The Revelstoke 1.0 wheels use DT Swiss 370 hubs and Syncros spokes and nipples, although the 1.0 wheelset doesn't feature the high-end DT Swiss build, they only sacrifice 150g, weighing in at a claimed 1,650g for the wheelset.

The wheels are only available as a 29in Boost wheelset with an XD driver, so if you run an HG or Microspline freehub you will need to buy a new freehub separately. Pricing for the new wheels is currently TBC.

The Revelstoke 1.0s wheels are priced at a premium $2,499.90 / £2,399.90 / €2,399.90 and the cheaper Revelstoke 1.0 cost $1,799.90 / £1,699.90 / €1,699.90.
