The HX 1501 SPLINE One makes for a mountain bike thats fun to ride uphill and downhill. Thanks to its unsurpassed know-how in the manufacture of wheel components and industry-leading testing procedures, DT Swiss is able to specify its wheels in such a way that they are precisely matched to the area of application. And that is exactly what the developers at DT Swiss have done with this wheel. Your job is just to ride up and down the mountains.
Hybrid hubs have oversized housings with increased wall thickness, are equipped with heavy duty axles and have extra reinforced spoke mounts. They are also equipped with new 24T hardened steel ratchets, oversized bearings and steel rotors. Thanks to these clever optimisations, DT Swiss achieves a permissible system weight of 150 kg with only minimal weight increase compared to a standard MTB hub. The result is a jewel of a hub that can cope with the highest torques, offers direct drive and combined with the other HYBRID components results in extremely robust wheels.
All ball bearings in the hubs are oversized to withstand both the high loads and to run perfectly under the hardest conditions.
To complete the hybrid system, DT Swiss needed spokes that could not only withstand the higher weight and torque of a modern eMTB, but also fit perfectly to the oversized hub spoke mounts. The specially designed spokes have reinforced and oversized straight pull spoke heads, which together with the DT Pro Lock Squorx nipples ensure that all the power you transmit to the hubs is also converted into a forward movement. Disregarded by many, specifically developed by DT Swiss: Hybrid spokes made for this new way of cycling.
Mass height meters in rough terrain on the eMTB mean a very hard life for the rims. DT Swiss Hybrid rims feature the proven rim profile with load-optimised cross-sections and are approved for a system weight of 150 kg. To obtain a super stable, eMTB specific rim, the developers have increased the strength and material thickness where it makes sense. Available in various widths, you will find the right model for your riding style and terrain. Made for the tougher, faster and further biking of the future. DT Swiss hybrid rims have higher wall thicknesses and are approved for a system weight of 150 kg.
Straightpull stands for straight, uncranked spokes. Thanks to this technology it is possible to achieve an ideal ratio between weight and stability. The Straightpull spokes allow very precise alignment and optimised positioning in the wheel for a stiffer and more responsive wheel.
Straightpull hub technology
Straightpull hubs are designed for straight, uncranked spokes. They are extremely durable, reliable and can be converted to almost all axle standards.
DT pro lock technology
The screw locking system injected into the nipples enables the construction of extremely durable wheels. DT pro lock nipples prevent the spoke-nipple connection from loosening automatically. The integrated, patented screw locking system in the nipple thread is based on a two-component adhesive. As soon as the nipples are screwed in, an adhesive is activated which hardens completely at room temperature after approx. 6 - 7 hours. If necessary, the wheel can be used immediately after installation. Multiple re-centering is possible without any problems. However, the adhesive strength decreases slightly with each re-centering.
These spokes have two different diameters. The spoke is partially butted by cold forging. This reduces the diameter and allows weight reduction while improving elongation values.
Tubeless tyres offer some decisive advantages over the conventional combination of tyre and tube.
