DT Swiss R23 Spline Road Wheelset

Combine comfort and speed with the new R 23 SPLINE® wheels that work perfectly with the new breed of wider road tyres. The combination of wide rims and wide tyres results in more comfort in the saddle and more grip on the road. The rider ends up with faster and more enjoyable rides.

Together with the laterally stiff build which uses high end bladed spokes, the R 23 SPLINE® lets you tackle the last climb of the day with enough energy to enjoy the looks of the hubs and to plan your next big ride.

  • Bladed: The centre section of the spokes is bladed to achieve high aerodynamic properties. It is possible to combine butted with bladed to meet even higher demands on strength and low weight.
  • Double Butted: These spokes have 2 different diameters. A section of the spoke is butted through cold forging. This creates a thinner diameter. Therefore this thinner piece allows a reduction in weight while improving ductility.
  • Pawl: A proven freewheel system with pawls, reliable and safe.
  • Prolock: A patented liquid injected into the nipple thread allows for extremely durable wheel builds.
  • Quick Release: A wheel mounting system developed by Tullio Campagnolo in 1922.
  • Sleeve Jointing: A precise sleeve connects the profile; this guarantees optimum resistance against all occurring loads. Sleeve jointing is the best alternative to SBWT welded rims.
  • Straightpull: The term Straightpull refers to spokes with no bend at the head. This design allows for an ideal strength to weight ratio when compared to conventional spokes. Due to their more precise alignment and direct trajectory, straight-pull spoke technology creates a stiffer, more responsive wheel.
  • Spline: With straight pull spokes and the use of specific lacing, superlight hubs as well as high end rims featuring key DT Swiss technology, SPLINE® wheels make for a perfect training and racing partner.
  • Tubeless Ready: Tubeless ready rims are designed for use with tubeless kits and tubeless compatible tyres. The tubeless ready rims make for quick and simple tubeless setups.
