A fully capable mountain bike wheel to enable e-bikes to be ridden further and longer than ever before. DT engineers have designed this wheel specifically around the extra weight and added torque involved with an e-bike. Spoke beds have been reinforced in the aluminum rim to compliment custom spokes which meet optimized hybrid hub flanges keeping the wheel stiff while spreading stresses evenly. The rear wheel has the venerable DT Swiss Ratchet System freehub fitted with hardened steel ratchets and a steel cassette interface to improve durability in this high torque area. Weight has been kept respectably low by utilizing only the minimum necessary extra material, this is evident in the use of DTs lightest 240 Spline hub body as the basis for this wheel with oversize flanges and cartridge bearings used to ensure durability. The tubeless ready rim has a 30mm internal width to allow for an increased tyre contact patch on the ground providing fantastic grip, comfort and control. This wheel provides the ultimate upgrade to those looking to swap out stock e-mountain bike wheels for something tougher, lighter and longer lasting; or for any application where a heavy duty yet high end weight wheel is needed.
