DT Swiss XM 1550 Tricon 29er Rear Wheel
TRICON® technology in 29er size for your home trail or the trans rockies. The tubeless rim, open crowfoot lacing and precision bearings work together for perfect acceleration and stiffness.
- DT Swiss thru bolt: The DT Swiss thru bolt system is 100 % compatible with the quick release standard. Instead of a thin 5 mm shaft, the DT Swiss thru bolt is an alloy bolt with a diameter of 9 mm on the front hub and 10 mm in the rear. For mountain bikes with disc brakes, a thru bolt connection is a substantially stronger and therefore safer connection.
- DT Swiss ratchet system®: The patented freehub system which utilizes precise star ratchets, guarantees an extremely high load capacity and reliability. The “no tool concept” of this system allows for easy routine maintenance.
- No tool: No special tools needed for routine maintenance.
- Center lock®: Center lock rotor mounting system licensed by Shimano®, Inc.
- Double butted: Double butted spokes are thinner in the center than at each end due to DT Swiss‘ unique cold forging technology which reduces the diameter of the spoke for better strength to weight performance with improved elasticity. Only the cold forging process assures the highest mechanical quality.
- Bladed: These spokes have a flat (bladed) middle section for better aerodynamics. As in our butted spokes, the coldforging process is used for optimization of its mechanical properties.
- Prolock: A patented liquid injected into the nipple thread allows for extremely durable wheel builds.
- Tricon: Patented tubeless wheel system with an ideal stiffness to weight ratio.
- RWS: Patented wheel mounting system. Stiffer, safer and more user friendly than conventional quick releases. 100 % disc brake compatible.
