The rear wheel is responsible for transmitting power from the pedals to the ground and providing stability and control during descents. Like front wheels, rear wheels come in various sizes, materials, and designs, but they have different hub configurations to accommodate cassette cogs. These include standard threaded hubs, Shimano’s Centerlock, and SRAM’s XD Driver. Rear wheels are also available in different rim widths, diameters, and spoke counts, affecting the wheel’s weight, stiffness, and durability. Popular options include lightweight carbon wheels with wider rims, robust aluminium wheels with higher spoke counts and Shimano or SRAM compatible freehubs, and tubeless-ready wheels with better puncture resistance.
