RACE PROVEN - Nino Schurter raced the XMC 1200 SPLINE wheels to the top step of the Podium at the 2016 World Championships and at the Olympic Games in Rio. #Goldstandard.
The XMC 1200 SPLINE® is for anyone who enjoys high-speed climbing and descending: the hookless design allows super-precise construction of the rim for perfect tubeless compatibility. It massively reduces the chance of punctures, is very low in weight and achieves excellent tire support with the 24 mm rim width.
The new SPLINE® hub is the lightest wheel hub ever built by DT Swiss. Together with the DT aerolite® and DT aero comp® spokes and a high-quality wheel construction, it is the ideal complement to the high-end rim, resulting in the ultimate trailbike wheel – the XMC 1200 SPLINE®. Equipped with the 36T DT Swiss Ratchet System for quicker engagement, it is made for powerful acceleration and demanding technical trails.

It is products like the SPLINE® wheels that allow riders to go faster and further, ultimately making the cycling experience even more fun.The combination of high attention to detail and the legendary DT Swiss reliability featured with the new SPLINE® wheels will make you smile ride after ride, year after year.
Adapted Rim: SPLINE® wheels come with rims specifically designed for their intended use and are tubeless convertible.
Straight Pull Spokes: SPLINE® wheels use high precision straight pull spokes for the perfect strength to weight ratio. Stronger than conventional spokes, they are still true- and replaceable with standard tools.
SPLINE® Hub Shell: The result of precise engineering: A lightweight, aggressive looking hub shell specifically designed for straight pull spoke use.
Spoke Positioning: The SPLINE® hub shell design and straight pull spokes allow for an optimized position of the spoke anchor points, creating a stiffer, more responsive wheel.
Spoke Anchors: Due to the shape of the spoke anchors, spoke pull has only minimal effects on the bearing seats, which in turn considerably increases bearing longevity.
Lacing Pattern: SPLINE® hubs are optimized for their respective lacing pattern. This ensures that the spokes align with mathematical precision so that material use is minimized for the best strength to weight ratio.
Proven Freewheel Technology: SPLINE® wheels are either featuring the DT Swiss Ratchet System® or Pawl freewheel systems. Both offer quick and safe engagements while only requiring minimal maintenance.
