The RC 38 C SPLINE is the ultimate all-round wheel in the disc brake version. Its medium profile and low weight guarantee fun, both on the flat and on the mountain. Thanks to the newly available, super stiff removable axle version, sprints are even more explosive and cutting through curves is even more precise.
Rim width / rim height for road bikes
The trend towards wider tyres is not only true for mountain bikes today, but is also finding its way onto the road. Wider rims allow you to drive with less air pressure, significantly increasing riding comfort without risking punctures. The rim height has a further influence on the riding behaviour. It significantly influences air resistance.
Tubeless tyres offer some decisive advantages over the conventional combination of tyre and tube.
Spline ONE technology
The new SPLINE ONE wheels must be as light as possible, but still function smoothly for years on the trail in tough conditions. Wide lightweight rims, a simple tubeless setup and superlight straight pull hubs make this possible.
Straightpull stands for straight, uncranked spokes. Thanks to this technology, it is possible to achieve an ideal ratio between weight and stability. The Straightpull spokes allow very precise alignment and optimised positioning in the wheel for a stiffer and more responsive wheel.
Straightpull hub technology
Straightpull hubs are designed for straight, uncranked spokes. They are extremely durable, reliable and can be converted to almost all axle standards.
The centre part of the spoke is flat forged for better aerodynamics. A combination of butted and bladed is possible to meet even higher demands on strength and weight savings.
These spokes have two different diameters. The spoke is partially butted by cold forging. This reduces the diameter and allows weight reduction while improving the elongation values.
No special tool
Normal maintenance requires no special tool.
The screw locking system injected into the nipples allows the construction of extremely durable wheels.
Thru Bolt System
The DT Swiss Thru Bolt System is 100% compatible with standard dropouts. By using continuous 9 mm axles at the front and 10 mm axles at the rear, a considerably firmer wheel connection is achieved. This increases both system rigidity and safety.
