If you're looking for a no-nonsense wheelset for all of your drop bar, off-road adventures, the E 1800 DB23 Spline Wheel from DT Swiss fits the bill quite nicely. It's more than ready and able to bust out an epic day on some unknown gravel one weekend and help pilot you through mud bogs and sandpits at your local CX series the next. This wheelset, thanks to its tubeless ready rim construction and disc compatibility, also lends itself well to the commuter. As we have come to expect with every wheel from DT Swiss, this one comes out of the box built to the utmost precision with quality, durable components.
The tubeless ready aluminum rims are 23mm deep with widths of 20mm inner and 24mm external. That puts it right about at the perfect width for getting the most out of wider road, 'cross, and gravel tires. The 370 Straightpull hubs are splined for center lock disc use and for Shimano/SRAM 11-speed cassettes with endcaps for 12x 100mm, 15 x 100mm, or quick-release front and 12 x 142mm rear. 24 DT aero comp spokes lace each hub to the rim providing a lightweight build you'll appreciate on the climbs, an excellent ride that helps smooth out the washboards, and a touch of aerodynamics, always a help while motoring in the flats.
The spokes are of the straight pull variety, so there isn't the traditional j-bend at the head. This design allows for superior strength to weight ratio and better spoke alignment with its more direct trajectory. The end result is a stiffer and more responsive wheel for better handling when pushed hard. As a nice final touch, DT Swiss injects a patented liquid into the alloy nipples that helps prevent the nipples from loosening and thus, lower spoke tension, for an extremely durable build that stays true for many miles.
