DT Swiss H 1700 Hybrid Front Wheel - 27.5" - 35mm Rim - 15 x 110mm - BOOST Axle
Designed as a durable upgrade to the frequently short lived original equipment wheels that come on E-MTB's the H 1700's take DT's renowned SPLINE wheel platform and ratchet freehub system and make it ready for serious off road E-biking.
E-MTB's are tough on wheels, really tough, not only is there the added weight and higher maximum drive torque but E-MTB riders tend to ride further and more frequently, this adds up to a real challenge for anyone looking to design a truly durable wheel for long term E-MTB use. The result is DT's mission Hybrid, the first wheel engineering project to look specifically at the challenges of heavy duty E-MTB use for wheel. So, what's new? Just the nice blue stickers? nothing could be farther from the truth!
Hybrid ratchet hubs feature reinforced hub shells, oversized bearings and steel 24 tooth ratchets along with steel freehubs to prevent marking under extreme torque. The rims have reinforced spoke beds to resist fatigue and handle high loads for long periods of time. The straight pull spokes are custom made for Hybrid with an oversized 2.34 mm hub interface designed to protect one of the key points of stress on a wheel that's being used for E-MTB. In order for a wheel to pass as Hybrid certified in DT's inhouse testing lab it has to survive 50% more lifecycles, its spokes and rims have to endure 20% higher load tests and the bearings must be able to handle almost twice the maximum load of standard wheel. Whilst intended for E-MTB use, the Hybrid range is also ideal for larger riders, bike packers or anyone looking for a really durable wheelset with a high weight limit.
