Giant S-X2 Disc Wheelset

Reviews and good numbers are hard to find on many stock wheels, with good reason. This is an attempt to fix that with respect to the Giant S-X2 disc wheelset that comes with many Giant Revolt bicycles.

Thanks. I was hoping to get info on weight. I’m planning to upgrade to DT Swiss GR1600. I agree they roll well and I plan to keep them. I’ll probably keep slicks on these wheels (commuting and training rides) and knobbier tires on the new set for gravel Fondo events. Another thing I noticed right away is that I don’t think Giant’s wheel building is great with respect to the spoke tensioning. My wheels were slightly out of true before I even rode the bike.

I currently have a giant toughroad 2020 TOUGHROAD SLR GX 1 and it has the s-x2 wheel set. Do you know if it’s possible to upgrade the casette on the wheel set to an 11 speed cassette? i been looking everywhere and can’t find the answer.

Hi. I’m thinking of buying a secondhand Giant SX2 Wheelset for my GT Hybrid. Can you use a 9 speed cassette with it? Thanks.

Thanks for reviewing these , a few questions if you can help

any idea what the max weight limit is for these ? Could I bikepack on them for instance ?

Can I run a regular tyre with a tube or is it tubeless only?

Do you know what I should expect to pay for them second hand ,Have seen a set on auction on ebay, thanks

Just note that the Giant SX2 wheels are upgraded in 2021. I just bought Giant (Liv) Devote 2 and alhough the wheels are labeled SX2, they are different to the model reviewed here. They seem to be much wider rims 622x25mm and I do not notice any wobble in the freehub….

Do you know which bearing do they have – sealed or not?

Thanks for this. Do you know how much just the sx2 rims themselves weigh?
