DT Swiss RR415 Dura Ace 9000 wheelset 28F/32R 1537g

Posted by Francis Borg

Another wheel set built and this one is using up stock of the out of production RR415 rim. DT Swiss have replaced it with the heavier than stiffer RR440.

 

The RR415 is a 415g that has a hard tension limit of 1100N, this is O.K as I have a spoke tension gauge. The hub are the rather perfect Dura Ace 9000. If there anything better? The rims and hubs are laced with Sapim Laser spokes and black alloy nipples. Given the front is 28 spoke and the rear is 32 spoke  the weight of this wheelset is only 1537g (690g front and 847g rear).

 

The wheels are stiff too. It is a shame this rim is no longer in production at least it's replacement comes in 24H drilling though.
