DT Swiss HXC 1200 Hybrid wheel, 30 mm Carbon rim, 12 x 148 mm BOOST axle, 29 inch rear

  • HXC 1200, a sub 1,700 gram wheelset that's tough enough for long term E-MTB usage with a 150 KG weight limit, a stunning engineering achievement only made possible by DT's ability to customise every aspect of a wheel's construction
  • E-MTB's are tough on wheels, really tough, not only is there the added weight and higher maximum drive torque but E-MTB riders tend to ride further and more frequently, this adds up to a real challenge for anyone looking to design a truly durable wheel for long term E-MTB use
  • The result is DT's mission Hybrid, the first wheel engineering project to look specifically at the challenges of heavy duty E-MTB use for wheel
  • So, what's changed? the short answer... Everything!
  • Hybrid ratchet hubs feature reinforced hub shells, oversized bearings and steel 24 tooth ratchets along with steel freehubs to prevent marking under extreme torque
  • The rims have reinforced spoke beds to resist fatigue and handle high loads for long periods of time
  • The straight pull spokes are custom made for Hybrid with an oversized 2.34 mm hub interface designed to protect one of the key points of stress on a wheel that's being used for E-MTB
  • In order for a wheel to pass as Hybrid certified in DT's inhouse testing lab it has to survive 50% more lifecycles, its spokes and rims have to endure 20% higher load tests and the bearings must be able to handle almost twice the maximum load of standard wheel
  • Whilst intended for E-MTB use, the Hybrid range is also ideal for larger riders, bike packers or anyone looking for a really durable wheelset with a high weight limit
  • The HXC carbon rims feature a tough, hookless design with a 30 mm internal width to support modern high volume trail rubber
  • Rear wheels include both Shimano and SRAM XD freewheels for easy conversion
  • When bought as a pair they will include wheels bags, spoke tools, tubeless rim tape and tubeless valves
