As one of the DT Swiss premium dealers in Victoria we have got the opportunity to be this month's Demo Destination. This is the only chance this year to try these wheels out.
Lightweight carbon wheels make a bike feel snappy and easier to get up to speed. They can help you climb faster and save energy on long rides. They are also much stiffer, meaning in corners they flex less allowing you to carry more speed and making the bike feel snappier and more responsive. Contrary to popular opinion, carbon wheels are much stronger and when built by the DT Swiss professional wheel builders, they will almost never go out of true.
Not convinced carbon wheels actually make a difference? Not sure if carbon wheels are right for you? Or do you just think they're kinda cool and want to try them out? There's only one way to find out, come on down or give us a call to book in your demo!
With a wide range of options available we're sure to have the demo set you're looking for!

The 30mm inner width of the tubeless optimized carbon rim provides excellent support for the wide tubeless tire. Double-butted competition race spokes and the highest quality wheel construction round off our XMC 1501 SPLINE ONE wheels.
EXC1200 - Boost 29"/27.5 Mullet - Maxxis Minion DHF/DHR2
A carbon structure optimized for impact resistance, a reinforced flange and the ideal resin-carbon fiber ratio make the EXC 1200 SPLINE the benchmark in the enduro sector. The rim’s inherent strength allows the use of extremely lightweight Aerocomp and Aerolite spokes and generates optimum wheel stiffness. The heart of this wheel is a 180 STRAIGHTPULL hub with smooth-running SINC CERAMIC bearings and the newest RATCHET EXP freehub system.

Both components are held together by performance weight optimized competition race straightpull spokes.
