Wheelset 29" XC | DT Swiss 350 MTB Straightpull Center Lock hubs | Race Face aluminum rims
intended use : Cross Country XC
Stable, functional and also inexpensive - this is the best way to characterize this wheelset. The combination of Race Face aluminum rims and the proven DT-Swiss hubs should therefore always be shortlisted. The balanced selection of components guarantees you high reliability and a long service life.
Switzerland is known for good chocolate, first-class cheese and wonders of precision engineering. The dedication to detail that produces these products is also reflected in the DT Swiss 350 hubs. Above all, the love for mechanics is easy to identify. Due to their simple but well thought-out construction, the current 350 hubs have become significantly lighter compared to the previous versions. The Ratchet freewheel system, tried and tested by the DT-Swiss 240 hubs, makes the hubs an extremely reliable companion. Compared to pawl systems, the built-in toothed disk freewheel offers a more extensive power transmission, which significantly reduces wear. With 36 teeth, the hub reacts very directly to acceleration. The new shape of the end caps makes dismantling even easier, so that changing over to other axle type standards is even easier.
The ARC rim has become one of the favorite rims of wheel builders from all over the world. With the new offset variants, even stiffer and more durable wheels can be built. This is achieved by a more balanced spoke tension between the drive side and non-drive side.
A specially shaped rim base with a central depression and minimalist, short hooks on the rim flange keeps the tire securely on the rim in every situation, even with low air pressure. The larger contact surface of the tire also significantly improves grip.
The rim is made of forged aluminum 6069, the butt is pinned and additionally glued to increase durability and reduce weight. The black anodized finish saves weight and gives the rims a subtle look with their vinyl decals. Of course, the rims can be converted for tubeless use.
Impeller construction at R2-Bike
Our wheels are assembled entirely by hand by our wheel builders. During the entire construction, it is important that not only the concentricity is right, but also that the spoke tension is as even as possible. The special care allows us to give a lifetime guarantee against broken spokes, as long as this is not caused by violence!
You will also receive the following services with our wheels:
A universal impeller bag for all common sizes.
A spare spoke + nipple in all required spoke lengths to be able to repair the impeller at short notice even after an accident.
A free initial check of the impeller, where the resulting work is completely free! Only shipping costs are charged.
A crash replacement promise. If your wheel is damaged due to force majeure, we will rebuild your wheel once. We grant a 100% discount on all labor costs and only charge for the material!
