DT Swiss XR 391 MTB Wheelset
Rims - DT Swiss XR 391 - A super light XC race rim with a 25 mm internal diameter
Wider doesn't just improve grip and comfort; it's faster, during extensive off season testing with Nino Schurter and Florian Vogel is was proven that matching wider XC race rubber to an optimum width rim was vital to reducing rolling resistance. The highest profile result of this research project was the World Cup winning XRC 1200's. but with the XR 391 DT is bringing wide XC race rims to a whole new price point. 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 110 KG, heavier riders or those looking for more durability are advised to look at our XM designated trail rims.
