With its distinctive two-piece hub shell, renowned reliability and innovative Pro Head Reinforcement (PHR) rim/spoke interface the SPLINE One system has set the bar for high-end alloy MTB wheels
XR (Cross Race) version uses a 20 mm internal, 24 mm external width rim to give race-worthy low weight without compromising the SPLINE One’s renowned toughness and handling
With an average weight of 1400 grams in 26 inch, 1460 grams in 27.5 inch and 1510 grams in 29 inch the XR 1501’s are genuine race day contenders but tough enough for everyday use
Two piece forged hub shell has two key advantages: firstly it allows the hub shell to be internally CNC’d to a far great extent than a one piece hub, reducing weight whilst leaving material precisely where it is needed, secondly it allows DT to isolate the forces generated by spoke tension from the bearing seat, giving smoother rolling and improved bearing life
The Competition butted spokes attach to the rim via DT’s patented PHR system, which uses a convex pivoting nipple and shaped washer in place of a traditional eyelet, this allows the nipple to pivot for perfect alignment with the spoke, removing one of the key stress risers and sources of flex in traditional wheels
Combined with straight pull hubs designed from the ground up to mesh perfectly with the PHR system and you have wheels with the best stiffness and strength to weight ratio possible
Whilst the SPLINE One’s hub shells are unique, the internals are taken from DT’s legendary 240 hubs so you know you’re assured excellent durability, low weight, wide axle and freehub intercompatibility and easy, tool-free servicing
For faster engagement in technical situations the 1501s come with a 36 tooth freehub ratchet upgrade as standard, ideal for tricky climbs or grabbing quick pedal strokes during descents
When bought as a pair they will include RWS Skewers, tubeless rim tape and tubeless valves
Maximum recommended system weight: 100 KG
