DT Swiss XR 1450 Front Wheel
Railing the singletrack descent while thinkg about the next uphill section. The XR 1450 has 28 bladed spokes, welded rims and high end hubs that match race worthy weight with reliability.
- Thru axle: Contrary to the DT Swiss thru bolt system, a thru axle connection is not compatible with the quick release standard. The thru axle is always an integrated part of the frame or fork. The diameter of those axles is generally 20 mm in the front and 12 mm in the rear.
- Prolock: A patented liquid injected into the nipple thread allows for extremely durable wheel builds.
- 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.
- Center lock®: Center lock rotor mounting system licensed by Shimano®, Inc.
- SBWT® welded: (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.
- RWS: Patented wheelmounting system. Stiffer, safer and more user friendly than conventional quick releases. 100% disc brake compatible.
