This is a DT Swiss based gravel, MTB XC or allroad wheelset using of of two rims.
The photographed set are XR331 rims for my daughters bike with DT swiss hubs as she need 141mm boost spacing. She needs something light and versitile for XC and gravel/wide road tyres.
At checkout simply state the rim you want. There are not enough drop down menu options.
The rims offered well theres three. All available in 650B or 29er rim sizes.
DT Swiss XR331 -365g (650B) 20mm internal width
DT Swiss XR361 -395g 22.5mm internal width
DT swiss XR391 -415g 25mm internal width.
Depth is all similar at 18mm.
Tyre width these are suitable for is 28mm to 60mm for the XR331 (daughters wheels has 2.35" tyres on and they have a nice shape), 35mm to 65mm for the XR361 and 45mm to 70mm for the XR391.
The rims build really well and are tubeless compatible.
The rims have a 110kg weight limit however these wheels are really for lighter rider. Heavier rider approaching 100kg have many other better choices
The spokes used are Sapim CX Rays for the front wheel and Sapim CX Force for the rear wheel.
The hubs used are BORG DX which are 100x15/100x12mm TA front and 142x12mm TA rear or 100/135mm QR.
The hubs use very reliable specially selected SKF bearings with the rear hub running on 5. Please buy rotor lockring for Borg dx hubs. The hubs are centrelock fitment.
Shimano, Campagnolo XD, XDR and microspline freehubs are available.
DT Swiss 350 6 bolts hubs are the other option. These are a larger flange design and larger flanges are better for disc brakes.
There are numerous end cap options for DT swiss hubs but the end caps that come with the hubs are 15x110mm TA front and 148x12mm boost rear. QR road end caps convert the hub to boost 141mm spacing for the rear wheel for example.
So BORG DX hubs are either 12mmTA non boost or old fashioned QR for road and gravel bikes and older MTB's.
The DT Dwiss hubs are 110/148mm spaced boost hubs for MTB frames
The spoke count is 28H. Since the wheelset is not meant for heavier riders this is fine for the riders it is supposed to suit.
Wheelset weight for the 650B versions is 1560g with the DT Swiss hubs or 1460g with the BORG DX hubs.
