DT Swiss XR 361 MTB Wheelset
Rims - DT Swiss XR 361 - With race courses getting ever rougher and more technical racers are looking to size up their race tyres for improved handling, this means that race wheels also need to widen up.
DT have gone back to the drawing board for the XR 361 this isn't just a wider 331, it‘s a fully custom asymmetrical extrusion designed to offer the best possible strength and stiffness to weight ratio of any wide alloy rim. A 22.5 mm internal width makes these ideal for high volume 2.2-2.4 inch XC race tyres whilst not being so wide that you can't chuck a set of 1.8 Mud spikes on there if the heavens open. The rim bed is tubeless optimized to provide fast tire installation, a great tire fit and quick trouble-free tubeless setup, of course you also have the option to run standard inner tubes.
Whilst as wide as DH rims from a few years back, it should be noted that these are still very much race orientated items with a maximum suggested system weight of 100 KG, heavier riders or those looking for more durability are advised to look at our XM designated trail rims
