Ready To Rage

Introducing the Race Face Turbine R 27.5" Wheels — the ideal choice for any XC or all-mountain MTB rider looking for a reliable, lightweight set of wheels for all-day epics, XCO races, or fun days at the local bike park.

A stiff and durable 6069 welded Alloy rim with a 30mm inner width makes these lightweight, burly wheels just what your Enduro or XC build is begging for.

An offset-spoke bed laced with reliable, double-butted straight-pull spokes provides ideal wheel stiffness and balance. Race Face even threw in 5 spare spokes just in case you let go of your bike down a hillside.

The unsung hero of the wheelset is the super high engagement Vault hub, which delivers big-time performance and durability for long-lasting shredability.


  • New stronger alloy for highest impact resistance of any Race Face or Easton rim
  • Large oversized flange for improved bracing angle
  • Wider bearing stance
  • Larger bearings
  • No bearing adjuster
  • Vault hub has 6 double tooth pawls (3 engage at a time)
  • 120 points of engagement (3 degrees)
  • Each pawl has its own spring
  • Balanced spokes
  • Tubeless-ready
  • Wheelset weight: 1730g

Note: these wheels are sold as front and rear separately. The price shown after selecting an option from the dropdown is for that single wheel.

FREE Cassette Installation - Order a cassette along with a wheelset and we can install the cassette for free. Cassette installation requires special tools that not all our customers have. The cassette will be professionally installed and torqued to spec. Just add "Please install cassette" to your order notes at checkout and we'll take care of you. Please Note: If our inventory allocation requires that we ship your wheels and cassette from different warehouses, we will not be able to offer this service.

Bought these (purchased the front and back since it is not sold as a set)through Biketiresdirect.com because they are the only ones that have them for a great price. Sign up to their newsletter and use the discount and be glad that you did. Called over the phone and the customer service was FANTASTIC and the gentleman that helped me was Andrew, great guy and knows his stuff. He told me after checking that I could use the discount(15%) and applied it to my purchase. So not only did I get my wheels cheaper than ANYONE would've offered me but I also got credit towards future purchases, DOUBLE WIN!! Once the wheels got here I was amazed at the build quality, how light , how stout and the quick ratcheting of the weird looking hub. Tires are a bit hard to put on but once on they stayed on. Added sealant and was off to one of the local trails. Not only did I have to get used to the new added grip of the width of the tire but the 120 POE on the rear wheel made it easier to go over roots on a uphill plus it saved me 2 times from what could have been washouts on my old wet. Turns(flat or bermed) were WAAAAAAAAAY easier to do. Did a few small roller jumps and landed with confidence. This wheelset is a confidence booster for sure. OVERALL VERY and COMPLETELY SATISFIED with BTD and the wheelset. I am now a customer to BTD.

Quick engagement, firm and light weight.

The wheels roll forever. Put them on a SC 5010 and they run great.
