The DT Swiss RR411 wheelset is ideal for weight weenies and lighter riders.
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 light so wheel weight start from 100g.
The rim is 18mm internal width and 21mm deep. It is 22m wide so suits bikes with clearance issues or older caliper thatcant accept wider rims. The rear has an asyymetic 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.
Carbon Ti hubs are for straight pull spokes. They have a 17mm rear axle and 6803/6903 sized bearings. 56T ratchet ring and a 4 pawl freehub body. A reliable but simple light weight hub.
Extralite Cyber SL and Cyber Rear hubs take weight weenism to the extreme and yet they are quite reliable. If you take the hubs apart though beware the end cap threads are fine so just take care.
I do not consider this wheelset to be fully tubeless compaitable as DT Swiss rims lack the feature to keep a tubeless tyre seated without air. They of course set up tubeless and DT Swiss considers this rim profile tubeless coimpatible.
If your buy tyres they will be fitted.

Due to the disruption in postal service, misdeliveries, customs issues and long delays all overseas shipping is now with UPS/Parcelfocre shipping, weight and destination affect price. So the following applies.
UPS is apply a £5 surcharge to all parcel picked up from 1st November to 1st January. This cost is passed onto you.
E.U countries that I ship to regularly.
Parcel Force shipping is used for a number of European countries. The price is the same for up 25kg. There is not a small parcel rate with Parcel Force. If your country is one of those then checkout is simple.Just checkout and pay. Parcel force offer a road freight service to most of Europe and it takes 2 to 5 days depending on the destination. UPS is also available on request.
Other E.U nations/outside EU customers a will see UPS rates.
However if the rate maybe wrong and the UPS rates assume a small E2 jiffy bag suitable for many small items. This if course does not apply for bigger items or multiples purchases. Quotes are available. Simply registering the website with you address e.t.c and I will provide full quote.
Therefore contact the shop for a shipping quote. Your registered shipping address will used for the UPS quote.
VAT will be removed as well and a new invoice issued. If payment has already been made a refund for excess payment will be issued.
For outside E.U customers the following applies. The order value is with VAT. VAT is 20% so order total for the parts/6 = VAT amount.
Then add the UPS shipping amount. The true amount may differ. the VAT is used if you have under paid if more is due then we will let you know. If you have over paid I will work out what and refund you.
