Push your buddies on the local trail. Be it spring, summer, autumn or winter. Pro Lock nipples, sleeve joint rims and star ratchet hubs build into the very light and durable 1600 wheelset.
Thru-Axle: Thru axle - Contrary to the DT Swiss thru bolt system, a thru axle connection is not compatible with the quick release standard. The thru axle is always an integrated part of the frame or fork. The diameter of those axles is generally 20 mm in the front and 12 mm in the rear.
RWS: Patented wheelmounting system. Stiffer, safer and more user friendly than conventional quick releases. 100 % disc brake compatible.
Center lock®: Center lock rotor mounting system licensed by Shimano®, Inc.
Prolock: A patented liquid injected into the nipple thread allows for extremely durable wheel builds.
Double butted: Double butted spokes are thinner in the center than at each end due to DT Swiss‘ unique cold forging technology which reduces the diameter of the spoke for better strength to weight performance with improved elasticity. Only the cold forging process assures the highest mechanical quality.
Sleeve joint: A precise sleeve connects the profile. This guarantees optimal stabilization in all directions. This is the best alternative to SBWT® welded rims.
