The DT Swiss RR415 is a light weight, top quality welded road rim designed to improve upon the 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 RR415 rims up with 32 hole, Shimano 105, Ultegra, Dura-Ace, or Pure RT series hubs, laced three cross front and rear, using your choice of DT Spokes and nipples. This lace pattern offers excellent lateral strength while still allowing each wheel to absorb a fair amount of road vibration. All Shimano hubs feature a loose ball bearing, cup and cone mechanism, are 8/9/10/11 speed compatible, (except for the Dura-Ace 7900's), but vary in weight. The Pure RT hubs feature a light weight design with sealed cartridge bearings. 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, (except the Dura-Ace option has a titanium freehub). The approximate sheel set weight varies based on hub, spoke and nipple selection, but the range is approximately is 1645g, (Dura-Ace, DT Comp double butted, alloy nipples) to 1840g (Shimano 105, DT straight gauge, brass nipples). Wheels will ship with Velox 16mm cloth rim tape, (not installed), and QR levers respective to your hub selection.
