Rainy days, wet soil, rocks and roots. The tubeless tires somehow find grip. The M 1700 SPLINE 25 comes stock with tubeless rim tape and valves, just the right tool for demanding trails. The wide rim gives the tire that decisive little bit more support while the Ratchet System freewheel ensures safe engagements even in the most averse conditions. Finally, being a lightweight helps you to quickly get back up to that trail entrance, to start the slip-and-grip fest all over again.
Just wide enough, just light enough. At 30mm internal rim width the M 1700 SPLINE 30 works for tires ranging from slightly wide to quite wide, allowing it to attack the hardest terrain. But with a high-end build, butted spokes, patented alloy Pro Lock nipples and the benchmark Ratchet System hubs, it still comes in at a low weight. Low weight means it's very reactive to rider input. Reactive means fun, and fun is why we are all doing this, right?
Responding to the demand from top racers for even wider rims, DT have developed an XC-specific 25mm-wide rim profile. This is what's built into the XR 1501 SPLINE ONE 25. The result is a super capable, super light Cross Country wheel. It feels perfectly at home on the trails that have become tougher and rougher both up and down the mountain. And built with DT Swiss quality in every detail, from the hub internals to the spoke nipple, it makes sure you complete all the laps, weekend after weekend.
With even the EWS race courses getting tougher and tougher and tire manufacturers offering Enduro-strong tires in 2.5-inch sizes, the demand from DT's pros for a wide, Enduro tough wheelset came up and DT responded by developing the EX 1501 SPLINE ONE 30. Often used as a front wheel to generate as much grip where you need it most, it is the wheel for those hunting after the toughest of tracks or those living right in the Alps. Strong, lightweight, and tough as nails, the EX 1501 30 is ready for just about anything.
The XM 1501 SPLINE ONE 30: a whole lot of wheel. Fit with high volume tires it will eat up the roughest of descents you can throw at it, and it will climb to those trailheads with ease. Really the perfect size for demanding all mountain riders, it features DT's famous aluminum rim construction, proven on World Cup downhill and EWS levels. The DT Swiss wheel build quality and the unmatched Ratchet System hubs complement this extremely capable package, made to dominate the mountain.
Firmly standing in the plus category, the XM 1501 SPLINE ONE 40 enables these bikes to show their full potential when matched to the right plus size tire. Set up tubeless, such a bike has most of the possibilities of a fat bike while being light enough to be ridden very, very dynamically. DT's rim profiles, wheel build, and hub technology are so elaborate, they will easily stand up to all the abuse such a plus bike is capable of.
The new 22.5mm-wide Cross Country specific XR 1501 SPLINE ONE comes with all the advancements of a modern cross country rim, only at 2.5mm more width, providing more air volume for the same size tire which creates more traction and comfort. The asymmetric rim further improves spoke angles, making the wheel even stiffer, more precise handling, and more responsive. The specially developed process for surface hardening and the gentle anodizing result in an unsurpassed surface durability at no additional weight.
