When the XM 1501 SPLINE ONE 40, fully a Plus category wheel, is combined with the right tyre, neither too light nor too heavy, then a Plus bike unfolds its full potential. With tubeless Setup, a Plus bike has almost as much grip as a fat bike, but remains light enough to be moved dynamically. Our rim profiles, wheel quality and hub technology are so sophisticated that the XM 1501 SPLINE ONE 40 can easily withstand the stresses and strains of these bikes. After all, it's what's fun and what it's been designed for.
In the Pro Lock process, a patented two-component adhesive is injected into the nipple thread, allowing the construction of extremely durable impellers. As soon as the nipples are screwed in, the adhesive is activated and cures completely at room temperature after approx. 6 - 7 hours. Repeated re-centering is possible without problems, whereby the adhesive strength decreases slightly with each re-centering.
Tubeless Ready rims from DT Swiss have further advantages over conventional rims. Thanks to the design of their cross-section, the tyre simply pops into place when inflated, so that in most cases only a normal floor pump is required. The ingenious profile of the DT Swiss rims also ensures a precise and secure fit for the tyre, even under tough driving conditions.
PHR - Pro Head Reinforcement system. The PHR system increases the load-bearing surface of the nipples on the rim and reduces local loads. Peak loads are reduced so that DT can build the rim even lighter. The shape of the disc also acts as a ball joint and automatically aligns the specific DT Squorx Pro Head ball nipples with the spoke, reducing the risk of spoke breakage or rim cracking.
