With the experience that we have gained from cross country racing, we have improved upon our successful XR 1540 wheel set. With lighter rims that feature a unique special lightweight coating and a few more details our engineers wont share, we were able to lower the weight without sacrificing stability or stiffness.

  • SBWT (strength boost welding technology): First two small blocks (sleeves) are pressed in both ends of the rim to stabilize the profile during the welding process. During the welding process the two ends move towards each other to achieve a solid joint. Then the seam gets CNC machined. This process guarantees the best rim joint.
  • 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 cold forging process is used for optimization of its mechanical properties.
  • Center lock: Center lock rotor mounting system licensed by Shimano, Inc.
  • 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.
