Rims - DT Swiss FR 560 - With over half the Downhill World Cup pits running DT wheel components, no one else has more experience and knowledge in making dedicated DH race hoops. Up until recently, DH tyres lagged behind their trail counterparts in terms of offering updated, high-volume casings designed for wider rims
However, with a new generation of 2.5 inch, high volume DH rubber now hitting the slopes, the time is right for DH to embrace the advantages of full 30 mm wide rims
The FR 560 is one of the first of these, designed from the ground up as a DH race model, it offers monstrous strength and impact resistance but extensive testing has lead to a rim that's the same weight as the old 570 despite being wider.

Unlike our premium Enduro and All Mountain rims, the FR 560 uses standard eyelets, the reasons for this are twofold; firstly it makes it easier to source replacement nipples when you're racing tomorrow. Secondly; with a rim that's already this stiff the PHR system used for our lighter models is simply overkill and using standard eyelets adds a small amount of flex into the wheel system for added control and grip in technical sections and corners.
