Mountain biking is constantly evolving. In Cross Country, you no longer simply ride natural single-tracks; man-made obstacles now create unprecedented loads. What was once considered a downhill track is now your daily lunch ride on your enduro or all mountain bike. Wheels need to withstand heavy loads, allow easy acceleration and offer a larger inner width for better tire support. To meet the needs of Cross Country, All Mountain and Enduro riders, we have completely redeveloped our 1900 SPLINE line.
THE RIM – WIDER AND LIGHTER
By using the World Cup proven rim profile, we were able to reduce the ratio of weight to inner width by 19.04%.
THE HUB – IMPROVED STIFFNESS
By increasing the distance between the middle axis and spoke holes, we were able to improve the lateral stiffness, thanks to the larger bracing angle of the spokes.
THE SPOKES – INDUSTRY LEADING
DT Swiss spokes and nipples stand for durability and precision and are unrivaled thanks to their unique production process. They combine a light weight with stability.
A wheel is more
than the sum of its components
High-end components play a decisive role in the quality of a wheel. But it takes even more to construct a high-end wheel.
The other factor which determines a wheel’s performance is the quality of the building process. Like the 1900 SPLINE, every DT Swiss wheel is hand-built, since no machine will ever match the precision of our experienced wheel-builders.
DT Swiss takes a “fingerprint” of each wheel. The fingerprint includes the tension of each spoke, the centricity and concentricity. A wheel leaves the DT Swiss factory only when its fingerprint meets our strict requirements. The fingerprint of each wheel is saved in our database, along with the name of the wheel-builder.
All of these factors ensure the highest level of quality of DT Swiss wheels. With the 1900 SPLINE, we are offering high-end wheels at an attractive price for Cross Country racers, All Mountain bikers or Enduro riders.
