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.

Same day disptach is not guaranteed due to volume of mail order. In general we are not operating with big delays in dispatch if any.
- Standard shipping is with Royal Mail using there 24 service. Cost £3. This is not a guaranteed service and takes 1-7 days normally but can be longer. The tracking number is not tracking but is a conformation of delivery code. If the item has been delivered to you or a neighbour then the tracking shows something otherwise it won't. If the item is needed urgently then pay for the courier/special delivery.
- For a £7 surcharge, a next day (not sunday) tracked service (from dispatch) with Royal mail special delivery is used. You get an hour delivery slot by text. It's a fine service and worth the money. This only works for items up to 2kg. beyond that it gets very expensive and Parcel Force 24 tracked is used.
- Rims are sent by courier only- cost £10. UPS is used. A phone number and email address must be supplied to allow me to book in. This service can also be picked for smaller items that you want delivered by UPS.

Due to the disruption in postal services during 2020, misdeliveries, customs issues and long delays all overseas shipping is now with UPS or Parcel Force. Parcel mass and destination affect price.
