Fitwheels makes wheels.. As many are riders, so many needs for selection and personalize of the appropriate set of wheels. We use for production the highest quality components. When you go against the client's needs, you can make it easy to adjust the wheel specifications to the customer's needs. All wheels built by fitwheels pass through a demanding process that ensures a high end of the product. Dt Swiss - Swiss manufacturer of hubs, rims and other components necessary for the construction of wheels at the highest level. The brand of this brand is known for its high quality performance and unique design. Sapim - A Belgian company specialising in the production of spokes and nipples for the production of wheels. The presented wheel set is made of DT Swiss and Sapim components . A set designed for demanding users who value failure-free, low weight and individual design. The wheel set is compatible with the tubeless ready system. DT Swiss tubuless ready tape is included. The wheels are equipped with DT Swiss 240s hubs. This is a series of hubs for perfectionists. Optimized for the lowest weight. It was designed without compromise. The front hub has two machine bearings. The rear hub is equipped with four machine bearings and a ratchet system (18 teeth), which guarantees excellent freestanding work. Servicing the rear hub is very simple. Service of rear hub does not require any tools. XR361, the top aluminum model of the DT Swiss rim. It has 22.5mm internal width and asymmetrical nipple holes. A very decent rim by marathon and xc races enthusiasts. Thanks to the use of PHR washers, which distribute stresses on the large surface of the rim, the thickness of the walls can be maintained at such a low level that the rotational mass in the bike can be reduced as much as possible. All this to achieve one simple goal: faster driving. The connecting elements between hubs and rims are spokes and nipples.
We used the DT Swiss Competition spokes in the Race version. Spokes are bladed 2.0-1.6-2.0.
Sapim's anodized Polyax nipples are treated with a special coating to increase durability and allow for easier wheel building.Aluminium saves weight, compared to othermaterials like brass. Sapim's patented Secure Lock technology is a locking mechanism that prevents nipples from untightening. The advantages of this easy locking system are the possibility to use them on a truing machine and that there is no loose function while truing the wheel. Highly precise and accurate machines have specifically been developed to produce this type of locking system. They ensure stable and well defined deformation on the thread and increase the nipple's torsion about 18cNm (+/- 3cNm).
