If cross-country means a quick end of day session and an occasional marathon, then you should take a closer look at the XR 1700 SPLINE wheels. Lightweight, welded XC aluminium rims, reliable 350 hubs and Swiss precision in every detail - from the high-quality competition spokes to the typical DT Swiss quality. A wheelset that works day in, day out, whether you are riding against yourself, your buddies or the competition.
The profiles of the rims have been specially developed for tubeless use. They guarantee a perfect fit and make the installation of the tire as easy as possible. Nevertheless, it is always possible to use a conventional combination of tire and tube.
The DT Pro Lock spoke nipples prevent the spoke-nipple connection from loosening on its own. A patented two-component adhesive is injected into the nipple thread, which enables the construction of extremely durable wheels. As soon as the nipples are screwed in, the adhesive is activated and then hardens completely. Repeated re-centering is possible without any problems, whereby the adhesive strength decreases slightly with each re-centering.
DT Swiss hubs are known for the No-Tool concept. The concept allows the tool-free conversion to all common axle standards.
What makes the Ratchet System hubs superior is the fact that all teeth on each of the ratchets engage simultaneously every time. In the case of pawl hubs, the engagement surface area is rather small. With the Ratchet System, the whole front face engages, creating much smaller point loads. The result is the legendary reliability of the Ratchet System hubs.
