To climb mountains quickly and ride them down again even faster, is the domain of E-MTBs. With the HX 1700 wheelset mountain bikers get a reliable partner for this, which always maintains the right fun factor. At the same time, the high-end wheels are designed to meet the increased requirements that the ongoing development in the E-Bike segment brings with it.
Instead of changing the proven rim profiles, additional material was added to the DT Swiss Hybrid models exactly where it is needed most. Those parts were reinforced where the greatest loads occur. so that the aluminum rims can not only withstand higher speeds, but also carry a system weight of up to 150 kg. To offer every rider the best possible grip as well as optimum traction, the HX 1700 wheels are also available with two different inner widths.
Also focused on durability are the redesigned 350 hubs, whose enlarged hub body allows for better braking and drive torque. While the precision welded rim ends are the lightest and at the same time most stable connection type, the reinforced Hybrid 1 spokes increase the lateral and torsional stiffness.
Legendary reliability | The Hybrid wheels of the HX 1700 SPLINE (Straight Pull Line) series benefit from targeted testing procedures and many years of experience in the development of E-MTB components. Thanks to manual work, not only a precise manufacturing quality is achieved, but also the well-known, brand-typical reliability is ensured.
Tubeless Ready | Tubeless tires offer some decisive advantages over the conventional combination of tire and tube. The tire can be ridden with less pressure without risking "snakebites" and thus offers more grip. The lower pressure also provides a more comfortable ride. The absence of the tube means that there is no friction between the tube and tire and therefore rolling resistance is lower when riding off-road and over obstacles.
Ratchet freewheel system | The special feature of the patented freewheel system is that all teeth of the two installed ratchet pulleys always mesh simultaneously. Compared to pawl freewheel hubs, where the engagement surface is comparatively small, the loads are distributed evenly over a large contact surface by including the entire face surfaces. The result is lower point loading and thus significantly higher reliability.
Pro Lock technology | The DT Pro Lock spoke nipples prevent an independent loosening of the spoke-nipple connection. A patented two-component adhesive is injected into the nipple thread, which allows the construction of extremely durable wheels. Once the nipples are screwed in, the adhesive is activated and then fully cures. Repeated re-centering is possible without any problems, although the adhesive strength decreases slightly with each re-centering.
