DT Swiss XMC 1501 Spline® One Carbon CL Boost 27.5″ Wheelset – MTB Wheels


DT Swiss XMC 1501 Spline® One Carbon CL Boost 27.5″ Wheelset

Wider and tougher than ever before: DT Swiss presents the XMC 1501 Spline® One Carbon, a mature and well designed all mountain wheel that is light, durable and fast at the same time. With a 30mm rim width, the XMC is wider than its predecessor (but puts less weight on the scales) and therefore offers more tyre support. This allows the tyre pressure to be reduced, which means greater rolling resistance on rough terrain. The XMC 1501 Spline® One is made for all the mountains you dream of!

Concerning mountain bike wheels lighter and wider mean faster: XMC 1501 Spline® One Boost

Cycling is physics. During cornering, lateral forces impact the tyre. The tyre contact patch moves in the opposite direction to the lateral force. When cornering with a narrow rim, the tyre contact patch moves sideward and is not supported through the rim. This results in an unstable riding experience. The resulting folding in the tyre creates tension and the tyre pulls to the opposite bead. This causes a loss of air between the tyre bead and the rim bed, a so-called tyre burping. The tyre contact patch of the wide rim is inside the rim flanges. The side wall of the tyre is supported by the wide rim, which increases control. A wider rim can therefore be ridden with lower air pressure than a narrower rim.

And lower air pressure means less rolling resistance. A wheel with low tyre pressure will always roll over rough surfaces more easily than a wheel with high pressure, as the tyre is able to adapt to the ground. A wheel with a high air pressure cannot absorb obstacles and the bike must move upwards, comparable to lifting work, which increases rolling resistance. Less air pressure leads to less fatigue, as the rider has to invest less lifting work.
