First build with the DT Swiss RR411 DB (disc brake) rim
DT Swiss have brought out a new rim. The RR411 DB. It is a disc brake rim for road/CX use. It is light with a claimed weight of 410g but these weighed 418g.
The rim is 21mm wide but 18mm internal width. I could be wider but it is also wide enough. The rim is asymmetric which I like. It is tubeless compatible but I have not tested tubeless tyres on the yet. So in short I think of this a lighter version of the BORG22 but not as wide (the weight loss ha to come from somewhere).
They built up very easily. These wheels are off to Ireland and the customer is getting Miche Syntium, DX hubs and sapim force spokes.
I do offer builds with these rims with a Miche, DT Swiss and Carbon Ti hubs. CX-ray spokes are offered mainly to keep the weight down. Weight for a complete (bare wheelset) starts at 1410g.
I reckon on a weight limit of 100kg for the rim.
One point the ERD of 601mm is with the supplied DT Swiss silver nipples. As I don't building with internal upside down nipples I use Sapim black alloy self locking nipples. These work just fine and the ERD with these is 597mm inc washers.
DT Swiss spoke nipple washers should be used though.
