Interbike 2011: DT Swiss 4

The XMM is also available with an aluminum crown/steerer combo. Open, climb and lockout modes are engaged with a bar-mounted remote. (Who wants to turn knobs anymore?)

The two piece, hollow construction of the arch creates a very light and stiff magnesium lower.

Most DT Swiss forks are available with a 9mm thru-bolt or 15mm thru-axle system.

Tapered carbon goodness, shown here on the EXM model.

The crown and steerer are a unit of high modulus UD carbon. Internal rib reinforcements make it safe and stiff.

29er options galore.

The XM 1650 wheels are ready for big all-mountain adventures.

Welded for extra strength.

Listen to the Ratchet System at work.

FX 1950 Tricon wheels designed for downhillers, freeriders, and guys who really get after it.

Straight double threaded spokes are play-free on both ends, which means they are subject to lower peak loads.

The concave shaped sidewalls counteract the expansion force induced by tire pressure and spoke pull.

The green spoke inserts are supported on two sides in the rim, creating a big contact surface.

During the welding process, two small blocks are pressed in the rim to stabilize the profile. The two ends move towards each other to form the joint, then the seam gets CNC machined.

The cold forged spokes on the FX 1950's have a flat middle section for improved aerodynamics (go faster, yo!).

XM 1550 Tricon 29er wheels. They'll roll over almost anything.

The two piece flange and hub shell design relieves tension from the bearings, allowing them to spin as freely as possible. Coast on over to <a href="" target="_blank"><b><font color="#ffff00"></font></b></a> for more!

DT Swiss is pumped about their new air-sprung, XMM 150 Twin Shot tapered fork.

Rim shot! (Get it?)

DT Swiss rolled out something for everyone at interbike, including several new wheels for a variety of riding styles and a fork capable of hanging with the best.

    Shame (at least over here in the UK) their importer refuses to sell a spoke key to fit the torx nipples. You gotta' send 'em in, to be trued... Great!

    Supposedly, us mechanic's aren't qualified or trained for the job! Not like the DT Swiss professional and advanced wheel building course mean anything to them eh?...

    I'd be up for rockin' the FR1950s. Especially because they have green on 'em.

    Pretty pricey though, if the internet is anything to go by.
