A true workhorse, the HX 1700 is designed from the ground up to be the most reliable and dependable choice for those who want their E-MTB out on the trail where it belongs, not in the workstand

  • 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 wheels
  • So, what's changed? the short answer... Everything!
  • At the core of the HX 1700' are a custom version of DT's legendarily reliable 350 hubs with E-MTB-optimised 24-tooth ratchets and oversized hub shells for improved load transfer
  • The welded alloy 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 2.35 mm hub interface designed to protect one of the key points of stress on any wheel
  • 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 a 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

Available in a 30 mm internal width to support modern high volume trail rubber
