Description

Dive down the road less traveled.

When you're craving adventures that take you from road to gravel, and maybe even a little light singletrack, don't waste your saddle sore budget on skinny tires with no cushion. The 650b DT Swiss ER1600 DB23 Spline Wheel is here to soak up some of the chatter and give you a plush feel while you tackle the roughest of roads ahead. It is eager and ready to dive down dirt roads for weekend bikepacking endeavors, keeping you afloat through the sandy and loose flats, just to turn around and hug mud at your local cyclocross race series the next week. The rim is set up to roll tubeless, allowing you to run lower tire pressures to give yourself a little added pneumatic suspension on the ride, with a boost in grip holding you to the road ahead, and disc brake compatibility brings next-level modulation for steep country roads that have your guts twisting.

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 50 Straightpull hubs are splined for center lock disc use and for Shimano/SRAM 11-speed cassettes with endcaps for 15 x 100mm front, 12 x 142mm rear. They come along with a 6 bolt adapter, if your rotors of choice aren't centerlock compatible, ensuring you can run your wheels just as you like them. Lacing up each hub you'll find 24 DT aero comp spokes, rim providing a lightweight build you'll appreciate on the climbs, an excellent ride that helps smooth out the washboards, plus a touch of aerodynamics that is 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 Squorx nipples that helps prevent the nipples from loosening and thus, lower spoke tension, for an extremely durable build that stays true — and comfortable for many miles.

Not the right wheel size

    Upon receipt of my order, I realized these wheels are not 650b, rather they are 700c wheels. That said, they are a very good looking and high quality pair of 700c (not 650b!) wheels and if I was in the market for this size I would absolutely have kept them!

    How do the wheels themselves earn only 2 stars when the issue is the copy on the site? Why would you even bother to review when you got them, saw they were the wrong size and sent back?
