The DT Swiss RR411 wheelset is ideal for those that want a modern rim with box section looks.
The rim is relatively shallow and narrow. Tubed tyres are a straight forward fit but it not as tubeless tyre compatible as the BORG22 or the Mavic Open Pro UST rims as there is no bead lock bump/incline which keeps the tyre seated with no air pressure.
The rim is 18mm internal width and 21mm deep. It is 22m wide so suits bikes with clearance issues or older caliper that can't accept wider rims. The rear has an asymetric profile.
The wheelset is built with 20 spokes front and 28 rear and Sapim Cx Ray spokes front and Sapim CX Sprint rear to keep the weight down. Alloy nipples are used. This however means I do not recommend this wheelset for rider above 80kg. It a weight weenie wheelset for lighter riders.
Bitex RAF/RAR12 are fairly light and quite reliable. Shimano, Campagnolo and XDR freehubs available. The freehub is a 6 pawl arrangement running in a 24T ratchet ring. Given the 6 pawl opperate in 2 groups you get 48 ppints of engagment.
