DT Swiss added a 29-inch version of their well-regarded EX1501 wheels to their Spline One lineup, citing increased demand from the long travel 29-inch enduro crowd. These wheels are built to take a beating and use many of DT’s best technologies.

They are also offering a new FR Gravity wheelset that features a 27.5mm internal width and come exclusively in the 27.5-inch wheel size. Expect to see them under several elite downhill racers this season.
