DT Swiss XM 1501 Spline One 30 Boost Wheel - 27.5in

Catering to the rigorous needs of all-mountain and trail riders, the XM 1501 Spline One 30 Boost 27. 5in Wheel by DT Swiss balances the needs of durability and stiffness--all without the sticker shock of fancier carbon hoops. It's an ideal choice for aggressive riders seeking strength and stiffness from an aluminum wheel, but without depleting your funds for upgrades to your trail bike or road trips to iconic riding destinations. A touch wider than standard wheels, the 30-millimeter inner width places it into a progressive category of modern trail wheels designed for voluminous rubber. This added rim width readily accepts the average trail tire of 2. 3 inches, all the way up to plus-sized rubber pushing into 2. 8-inch territory. Running larger tires gives you the ability to drastically lower tire pressure, providing ample traction across loose trail surfaces and plush support when you're plunging into descents littered with loose rubble. Accommodating the Boost standards ubiquitous to modern trail machines, the XM 1501 Spline One 30 Boost 27. 5in Wheel benefits from extra stiffness afforded by its wider hub spacing, in turn improving the spoke bracing angle for a reliably stout, stiff build. Speaking of the hubs, DT Swiss employs a custom version of their legendary 240s straightpull hub, complete with a 36-tooth ratchet on the rear for quick engagement. The straightpull hub design accommodates straight spokes without a bend at the head, thereby eliminating weak spots. This makes it all the more tough and responsive, seeing you'll be thrashing this wheel for years to come. This particular wheel is available as a front or rear, in Boost spacing only. As a rear wheel, there's an included SRAM XD freehub body conversion for SRAM's newest 1x11 and 1x12 drivetrains. If you're rocking a Shimano drivetrain or SRAM 9/10-speed set-up, it'll work with these configurations straight from the box. It's optimized for tubeless set-up, seeing as how you'll want to reap the bene...

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
