Product Image DT Swiss XM481 wheelset front and rear

650B or 29er DT Swiss XM481 wheelset with DT Swiss 240 or 350 hubs front and rear


DT Swiss have up there game with the new rim range with the XM481. I offer these in 28H or 32H drilling with the excellent DT Swiss 240 or 350 hubs. They are 11 speed compatible and come with a variety of axle standard options so just specify what you need. 

For the price quoted you can opt for a variety of axle standards.

Non boost options 100x15mm, Q/R, 142x12mm 135x12mm, 135x10mm....

Boost options 110x15mm, 110x20mm or 148x12mm

At checkout let me know the axle standard you require.

The 350 hubs use normal steel bearing and are a bit heavier than the 240 hubs.

The 240 hubs use higher grade stainless bearings and are lighter. They are a more reliable hub for bearing life.

Both hubs feature the same twin ratchet ring freehub mechanism which is unique to DT Swiss and is a very reliable design.

I will asumme centrelock hubs unles 6 bolt is asked for.


The rim is 35mm wide (30mm internal width) and 21mm deep. It weighs 490g (650B) or 525g (29er).

The whole wheelset weighs from 1700g (28H 240 hubs) to 1870g (32H 350 hubs) depending on hub, rims size and spoke count. This is a stiff and durable  enduro wheelset that will take wide tyres. Top end wheels from The Cycle Clinic.

The rim is tubeless compatible and the wheel are supplied with stan's rim tape and stans tubeless valves to get you going. 

The spokes used are black sapim race with black Sapim alloy nipples in place of dt swiss silver alloy squorx simply  because the sapkm nipples work just fine. Nipple washers are used too as recommend by DT Swiss. Thinner CX-rays or the round Laser can be used too just ask.
