Description

Ready for adventure.

If all-out speed is your goal, then DT Swiss' XR line is the route that you need to explore. However, if the hunt for all-day rides with rewarding lines is your cup-o-tea, you'll find that the features of DT Swiss' XM 1501 Spline 27.5in Wheel provides exactly what you've been looking for.

The XM 1501's wide rim provides an excellent platform for enhanced tire volume and roundness. In other words, a wider rim makes for more grip and suppleness over rough trails. And, when the trail's like that, DT Swiss' Strength Boost Welding Technology ensures that your bike makes it through in one piece. Essentially, this process uses two small inserts that stabilize the rim during welding in order to increase structural integrity.

Adding to the strength picture are straight-pull spokes. These DT Swiss spokes are double-butted for weight reduction, however, this process doesn't sacrifice strength. Additionally, the elimination of J-bend spokes, or spoke elbows, ditches one of the more common fail points of a mountain wheel. The best part is that these straight-pull spokes are replaceable with traditional tools, making home maintenance a simplified affair. At the nipple, DT Swiss injects its patented liquid to prevent backing out and to ensure durability.

At the hub, DT Swiss' favored star ratcheting system takes care of reliability by handling extremely high loads with minimal amount of mechanical drag. And, like the spokes, it doesn't require proprietary tools in order to provide routine maintenance. In terms of braking, the hubs have a six-bolt rotor interface, and for added stiffness, they're available with a 15mm front thru- axle and a X-12 rear thru-axle.

The DT Swiss XM 1501 Spline 27.5in Wheels are available in the color Black. The front comes equipped with a 15mm thru-axle, and the rear is available with 12x142mm thru-axle. Please note that these wheels are sold individually, and that the freehub body comes with either a Shimano or XX1 compatibility.
