All-mountain strength without breaking the bank.
The DT Swiss M1900 27.5in Wheelset dispels the notion that running an affordable set of hoops has to sacrifice ride quality on the trail, dependable strength for stepping to bigger features, or support for running tubeless tires. It's priced rather attractively, especially when you consider many modern wheels cost as much as a mortgage for your house. This makes the M1900 a bonafide bargain for the all-mountain rider looking to upgrade their wheels without emptying their bank account just to fund their ambitions.
This version of the M1900 measures at 22.5 millimeters of internal width, making it an excellent choice for the rigors of aggressive trail riding and all-mountain disciplines where a tubeless-optimized rim is necessary for lowering tire pressures and reaping the subsequent benefits of increased traction and compliance over jarring sections of trail. This rim width is ideal for running tubeless tires in the range of 2.3 inches wide, providing plenty of support without deforming the tire into a bulbous shape that sacrifices stability or outright grip.
Its attractive price point would leave you to believe it's lacking in strength, but fear not, as DT Swiss designed the M1900 with a sturdy aluminum construction that's fit to conquer descents with rugged rock outcroppings, root-latticed sections in the forest, and sweeping berms at high speeds. It's rated to withstand rider weights up to 260 pounds, so heavier riders will be able to enjoy the admirable strength and low cost of this wheelset. However, you'll find at this price point that something has to give, and that something is the approximate 1850-gram weight of the wheelset, alongside entry-level 370 hubs from DT Swiss.
