Functions Road Wheels

  • Bladed
    The centre piece of these spokes is bladed to achieve aerodynamic properties. It is possible to combine butted with bladed to meet even higher demands on strength and low weight.
  • Carbon
    Being a high-tech composite material consisting of fibres and resin, carbon can be used to resist the exact forces it is subjected to. This enables engineers to design parts with an unmatched strength to weight ratio.
  • Center lock<sup>®</sup>
    Brake rotor mounting system licensed by Shimano.
  • Double butted
    These spokes have two different diameters. A section of this spoke is butted through cold forging. This creates a smaller diameter. Therefore, this thinner piece allows reducing the weight while improving ductility.
  • DT Swiss Thru bolt
    The DT Swiss Thru Bolt system is 100% compatible with standard quick release dropouts. It uses 9 mm front and 10 mm rear alloy axles, making the connection between the wheel and the frame / fork substantially stronger and safer than a standard quick release.
  • IS (6-bolt)
    International rotor mounting standard using 6 bolts.
  • No tool
    No special tools needed for routine maintenance.
  • Prolock<sup>®</sup>
    A patented liquid injected into the nipple thread allows for extremely durable wheel builds.
  • Ratchet system<sup>®</sup>
    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.
  • Spline
    SPLINE® wheel technology is about details. Combining new straight pull hubs with our legendary Ratchet System® and a modern appearance gives DT Swiss additional high performance wheels to our lineup. Riders will feel the added stiffness from straight pull spokes and the aggressive design characteristics. Stiff, responsive, SPLINE®. Available for Road and MTB.
  • Thru axle 15
    A thru axle connection is not compatible with the quick release standard. Thru axles are always an integrated part of the frame or fork. The diameter of the axle is generally 20 or 15 mm at the front and 12 mm at the rear.
  • Tubeless ready
    Tubeless ready rims are designed for use with tubeless kits and tubeless compatible tires. With the correct kit and tubeless compatible tires, the tubeless ready rims make for simple and quick tubeless setups.
  • Thru axle RW 12
    The 12mm-system is as stiff as a normal thru axle but at the same time as user friendly and lightweight as a conventional quick release.

Technology
SPLINE<sup>®</sup> Technology

SPLINE® Technology

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. More

Straightpull Technology

Straightpull Technology

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. More
