The DT Swiss RR1.1 is a light weight, top quality welded road rim designed to improve upon the Mavic Open Pro. At 415g, it weighs in about 20g less than the Open Pro, or about 40g for the wheel set. Does that mean the RR415 isn't as strong or as capable? Not even close. Keep in mind that the Open Pro has full double stainless steel eyelets, about 18-20g worth of material in every rim. If you were to swap those with single stainless eyelets, these two rims would be eerily similar. That's Rad! Totally Rad!
We are building these RR1.1 rims up in three configurations:
1) With Silver DT RR1.1 rims (32 hole) and silver Shimano Ultegra 6700 series (8/9/10 spd), with silver DT Competition spokes and alloy nipples
2) With Silver DT RR1.1 rims, (32 hole) and gray BWW Pure RT sealed bearing road hubs (8/9/10 spd), with silver DT Competition spokes and alloy nipples
3) With Black DT RR1.1 rims, (36 hole) and black BWW Pure RT sealed bearing road hubs (8/9/10 spd), with silver DT Revolution spokes and brass nipples
All three options are laced three cross front and rear. This lace pattern offers excellent lateral strength while still allowing each wheel to absorb a fair amount of road vibration. Like all Shimano hubs, Ultegra 6700's feature a loose ball bearing, cup and cone mechanism, are 8/9/10 speed compatible, and weigh in at about 500g for the set. The Pure RT hubs feature a light weight design with sealed cartridge bearings, and weigh in at about 425g for the set. Both the Shimano and RT hubs have an aluminum hub shell, steel axles, and steel freehubs that will resist cassette bite and hold up for a super long time. These wheels will ship with Velox 16mm cloth rim tape, (not installed), and QR levers respective to your wheel set selection.
