XM 1501 Spline One 40 Boost Wheel - 27.5in+ by DT Swiss
Seeing that plus-sized bikes are rapidly gaining traction in the industry and on the trail, it only makes sense that wheel manufacturers would cater to this popular new size. DT Swiss set out to develop their very own line of all-mountain wheels tailored to these big-wheeled brawlers with their XM 1501 Spline One 40 Boost 27. 5+in Wheel. This 27. 5+in wheel balances the needs of durability and stiffness for aggressive riders seeking an aluminum wheel--all without the sticker shock of pricier carbon hoops. It can do it all, from rock-strewn descents to twisting trails through the local forest.

Speaking of 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 wor...

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.
