The apogee of the modern trail wheel, light enough to race XC but stiff and strong enough for technical back country epics, the finest all round MTB wheels available bar none, these are the new benchmark.
Key to this are new XMC carbon rims developed especially for this wheelset, they use a high volume design with a width and depth of 30mm (24 mm internal) they offer class-leading stiffness with an unmatched strength to weight ratio.
24 mm wide hookless bead is ideal for high volume tyres running at lower pressures and allows substantial reinforcement of the outer edge of the rim, improving resistance to rock strikes with no weight penalty.
The XMC's are game changers in the lightweight trail wheel sector, no longer do you have to compromise by accepting narrow rims, lower stiffness or poor hub reliability, with the XMC 1200s you can have it all.
The heavily CNC'd straight pull centerlock hubs were especially developed for these and the new XRC carbon wheels and are the lightest mountain bike hubs DT Swiss have ever produced.
Ratchet system rear hub comes with a 36 tooth upgrade already installed, this gives almost immediate engagement, perfect for technical climbs and sudden accelerations.
A blend of DT's premium straight pull Aero Comp and Aerolite spokes offers an optimum blends of stiffness and low weight.
