Humid forest soil, roots. The tubeless tyre still somehow finds grip. The M 1700 SPLINE comes standard with tubeless rim tape and tubeless valve, ideal for demanding terrain. The wide rim increases the tyre volume for extra traction and the Ratchet System freewheel guarantees propulsion even under the most adverse conditions.
The elaborately machined hub body, the cleverly placed spokes and the proven freewheel technology of the new DT Swiss SPLINE wheel line have a single goal: to meet the high requirements of today's cyclists. These are components like the SPLINE wheels, which make it possible to go further and faster and thus further increase the pleasure of cycling. Thanks to the many well thought-out details and the legendary DT Swiss reliability, SPLINE wheels offer pure riding pleasure
SPLINE wheels have rims specially optimised for the application and are tubeless compatible.
Straight pull spokes
In order to achieve an ideal ratio of weight and stability, only high-quality straight pull spokes are used in SPLINE wheels. They are more stable than conventional spokes and can still be centered and replaced with standard tools.
The SPLINE hub housing and straight pull spokes allow an optimised positioning of the spokes for a stiffer, more responsive wheels.
The shape of the spoke anchorages minimises the influence of spoke tension on the bearing seats, which in turn increases the service life of the bearings.
SPLINE hubs are designed for the respective seating pattern. This allows the spokes to be aligned with mathematical accuracy, thereby minimizing material consumption in favour of the weight/stability ratio.
Proven freewheel technology
SPLINE wheels are equipped with either the DT Swiss Ratchet System or Pawl freewheel technology. Both stand for quick engagement and minimal maintenance.
Straightpull stands for straight, uncranked spokes. Thanks to this technology it is possible to achieve an ideal ratio between weight and stability. The Straightpull spokes allow a very precise alignment and optimised positioning in the wheel and thus ensure a stiffer and more responsive wheel.
Straightpull hub housings
DT Swiss straight pull hub housings get along with minimum material input, so they can be constructed easily and nevertheless stable.
Straightpull spoke positioning
The straight pull latching allows a precise placement and alignment of the spokes. This optimises the wheel stiffness and eliminates any unwanted load peaks.
Straightpull injection pattern
With crossed injection the anchoring of the spokes is designed so that the introduced forces almost cancel each other out. In this way, the precision of the bearing tip can be increased and the service life of the ball bearings can be increased even further.
DT Swiss hubs rightly enjoy a legendary reputation. Several unique features have contributed to this: The Ratchet System freewheel technology is extremely durable, reliable and can be serviced within a few minutes without tools thanks to the plugged hub structure. Thanks to the same plug-in system, all hubs can be converted to almost any axle standard and thus fit any bike. The non-contact sealing system and high-precision assembly guarantee the best running characteristics so that the energy of the rider is converted exclusively into propulsion. The consistent weight optimisation highlights the racing genes of this classic.
All DT Swiss 180, 240s and 350 rear hubs can be converted to any axle standard by changing the end caps without tools thanks to the plug-in system.
The high-precision and reliable spur gearing guarantees fast and safe engagement. The press-fit system allows quick and easy maintenance.
The rotor can be replaced without tools on all DT Swiss Ratchet System hubs.
