DT Swiss R 500 DB rims-
A proper dedicated gravel and cyclocross rim with a huge 22 mm internal diameter for super high-volume 35c and over tyres. Weight: 495 grams Available in both 700c and 650B ‘Road Plus’ sizes for the new breed of multi surface adventure bikes.
A substantial 130 KG weight limit means these can be used for bike packing or light touring. Unlike the lightweight XC mountain bike rims that have been used as impromptu gravel rims in the past these are proper road rims and designed to handle higher pressures safely. Can be run either with standard clinchers or road tubeless tyres using DT Swiss tubeless tape and valves. Unique process for the black coating produces a tough and durable finish.

Sapim D-Light spokes –
(4.8g per spoke) is a disc-specific spoke designed to be a replacement for Laser spokes in disc wheels as they handle the rigours of disc braking and off-road terrain better than it’s lighter counter-part. Best for sub-80kg riders when off-roading, otherwise if used for road application only, a heavier rider could consider them.
