Responding to the demand from top racers for even wider rims, DT have developed an XC-specific 25mm-wide rim profile. This is what's built into the XR 1501 SPLINE ONE 25. The result is a super capable, super light Cross Country wheel. It feels perfectly at home on the trails that have become tougher and rougher both up and down the mountain. And built with DT Swiss quality in every detail, from the hub internals to the spoke nipple, it makes sure you complete all the laps, weekend after weekend.
Tubeless-ready rims are compatible with both standard and tubeless-ready tires. When a tubeless-ready tire is mounted on a tubeless-ready rim with special tubeless rim tape, valve, and sealant, the tire and rim form an airtight chamber that no longer requires a tube. This lets you run lower tire pressure with less fear of pinch flats and without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction and lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces. The rim can always be used with a tube, as well, by simply removing the tubeless valve stem and installing a standard tube like you would with any non-tubeless tire.
