DT Swiss X 1600 Spline Rear Wheel Technologies:
Prolock: A patented liquid injected directly into the nipple thread allows for extremely durable wheel builds.
Ratchet System: Thanks to the proven DT Swiss Ratchet System® the hubs can easily be converted to different axle standards and rotors.This patented freewheel system uses precision ratchets, featuring extremely high load capacity and reliability. The no tool concept allows for an easy execution of routine maintenance.
CL: Brake rotor mounting system licenced by Shimano Inc.
Spline: The Spline hub design allows us to reduce the hub weight without sacrificing it’s ability to handle extreme loads. The combination of DT Swiss straight pull hubs and spokes guarantees precise alignment of the spokes, both at the hub and the rim. This results in optimized wheel stiffness and minimized unwanted spoke movement.
Thru Axle: A thru axle connection is not compatible with the quick release standard. Thru axles are always an integrated part of the frame or fork.
X-12: The X-12 system is as stiff as a normal thru axle but at the same time as user friendly and lightweight as a conventional quick release.
