Product Description

The apogee of the modern trail wheel, light enough to race XC but stiff and strong enough for technical back country epics, the finest all round MTB wheels available bar none, these are the new benchmark

Key to this are new XMC carbon rims developed especially for this wheelset, they use a high volume design with a width and depth of 30mm (24 mm internal) they offer class-leading stiffness with an unmatched strength to weight ratio

24 mm wide hookless bead is ideal for high volume tyres running at lower pressures and allows substantial reinforcement of the outer edge of the rim, improving resistance to rock strikes with no weight penalty

With an average weight per pair of 1410 grams in 27.5" and just 1495 grams in 29" the XMC's are game changers in the lightweight trail wheel sector, no longer do you have to compromise by accepting narrow rims, lower stiffness or poor hub reliability, with the XMC 1200s you can have it all

The heavily CNC'd straight pull centre lock hubs were especially developed for these and the new XRC carbon wheels and are the lightest mountain bike hubs DT Swiss have ever produced

Ratchet system rear hub comes with a 36 tooth upgrade already installed, this gives almost immediate engagement, perfect for technical climbs and sudden accelerations

A blend of DT's premium straight pull Aero Comp and Aerolite spokes offers an optimum blends of stiffness and low weight

Rear wheels include both Shimano and SRAM XD freewheels for easy conversion

Available in a wide variety of axle sizes and widths, including BOOST, and Predictive Steering

When bought as a pair they will include wheels bags, 6-bolt rotor adaptors, spoke tools, tubeless rim tape and tubeless valves

Maximum recommended system weight: 110 KG

These are poor wheels for the price My front wheel warped beyond repair and the rear snapped in 2 places at once from a small root. DTSwiss won’t budge on their warranty policy so imo it’s a complete scam charging £1200 a pair. They won’t last you long.

MTB Wheels Guide

How do I choose an MTB wheel?

There are many different sizes of MTB wheels and it is important to get the right one to fit your bike. There are five things that you need to consider when choosing a new wheel; wheel diameter, axle type, hub spacing, rim width and freehub type (rear wheel only).

What are the different wheel diameters (sizes)?

MTB wheels are available in 4 different diameters:

  • 29” - cross country (XC) and trail bikes
  • 650b (27.5”) – Most common size, XC, trail and downhill bikes
  • 26” – the traditional wheel size, but is now less common
  • 24” – only found on certain jump and junior bikes

What are the different axle types?

There are different axle types for front and rear wheels:

  • QR (9mm) – quick release skewer – for front and rear wheels
  • 10mm – thru axle - for rear wheels
  • 12mm – thru axle – for rear wheels
  • 15mm – thru axle – for front wheels
  • 20mm – thru axle – for front wheels

What about hub spacing?

As with axle types there are specific hub spacing’s for front and rear wheels:

  • 100mm - front, traditional size
  • 110mm – front, Boost standard
  • 135mm – rear, traditional size
  • 142mm – rear, most common
  • 148mm – rear, Boost standard
  • 150mm – rear, Downhill bikes

Why does rim width matter?

Yes. This is because weight on the rim adversely affects acceleration and climbing more than weight on any other part of the bike. Having said that a wider (and heavier) rim is more robust and will offer more support for the tyre. For this reason, cross country MTBs tend to have narrower rims than trail and downhill bikes. As long as you get the wheel diameter, axle type and hub spacing to match your existing wheel it is usually possible to change the rim width for either a lighter or a sturdier wheel.

What about Plus sizes?

Plus sized 27.5” & 29” wheels use very wide rims (38-50mm) that require Boost standard hub spacing. You can only use these rims on ‘Plus Sized’ bikes.

What are the different freehub options?

The freehub is the part of the rear wheel that the cassette fixes on to. There are 3 main freehub types that fit specific cassettes:

  • Shimano and SRAM– fits Shimano and SRAM 8, 9 & 10 speed cassettes
  • SRAM XD – fits SRAM 11 & 12 speed cassettes
  • Hope – fits hope 11 speed cassettes

If you match the above criteria, then you can be sure that the wheel you buy will be compatible with your mountain bike.

Do I need a disc specific wheel?

If you have disc brakes on your bike then you will need a disc specific wheel. There are two different types of disc rotors that are compatible with different hubs:

  • 6 bolt – most common type
  • Centre lock – used on certain Shimano hubs

Note – disc specific wheels are not compatible with rim brakes.

What about tubeless?

Some wheels are ready to be used with tubeless tyres straight out of the box while others can be converted with a simple conversion kit. This will usually be specified in the product description.

Wheels are either sold individually or in pairs known as wheelsets. Check the product description for more details.
