TRICON® technology in 29er size for your home trail or the trans rockies. The tubeless rim, open crowfoot lacing and precision bearings work together for perfect acceleration and stiffness.
DT Swiss thru bolt: The DT Swiss thru bolt system is 100% compatible with the quick release standard. Instead of a thin 5 mm shaft, the DT Swiss thru bolt is an alloy bolt with a diameter of 9 mm on the front hub and 10 mm in the rear. For mountain bikes with disc brakes, a thru bolt connection is a substantially stronger and therefore safer connection.
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.
Center lock®: Center lock rotor mounting system licensed by Shimano®, Inc.
IS (6-bolt): International standard for disc brake mounting with 6 bolts.
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.
Bladed: These spokes have a flat (bladed) middle section for better aerodynamics. As in our butted spokes, the coldforging process is used for optimization of its mechanical properties.
Prolock: A patented liquid injected into the nipple thread allows for extremely durable wheel builds.
Tricon: Patented tubeless wheel system with an ideal stiffness to weight ratio.
