DT Swiss RR1.1 700c Wheel Set

Original price was: $599.99.Current price is: $339.99.

This wheel set uses all top end components.  If you didn’t know a thing about high end rim brake road wheels, you could pick up a set of these and know there’s not much you could have done better, in terms of selection.


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 Sapim Leader silver stainless spokes and brass chrome plated nipples

2) With Silver DT RR1.1 rims, (32 hole) and gray BWW Pure RT sealed bearing road hubs (8/9/10 spd), with Sapim Leader silver stainless spokes and brass chrome plated nipples

3) With Black DT RR1.1 rims, (36 hole) and black BWW Pure RT sealed bearing road hubs (8/9/10 spd), with a mix of black DT Revolution and SuperComp spokes and brass chrome plated 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.

Where is Your Wheel Set Weight?

Not all wheel weight is equal.  Even though this is a 32/32 hole (or 36/36 hole) wheel set, these wheels are still very light weight.  This is a result of using all top end components.  The rims are at the very top of the list, in terms of accessible road rims for custom wheel builds.  The Shimano hubs are actually heavy, by today’s standards, but will definitely work for a really long time.  The Pure hubs are comparable in quality and finish to Shimano Ultegras, but come in a modernized sealed cartridge bearing design.  The spokes and nipples are also high end, the net effect is a very polished, very nice road wheel set.

    Providing the finest wheel tailored to your riding proficiency and budget, crafted to perfection.

    Offering the best available price for that wheel on the entire planet.

    My eagerly awaited wheels arrived today, marking a significant enhancement for my bicycle. While my bike was already in good condition, it has now become substantially more secure and stable.

    Regardless of your riding level or style, engaging in discussions about biking with this company inevitably leads to a personalized recommendation for the wheelset that aligns with your needs and budget. The dedication they show in understanding you, your bike, and your riding environment is truly impressive. They value your time and never rush you off the phone, showcasing an expertise in wheels comparable to any expert in their field. Their goal is to ensure a perfect fit from the extensive range of combinations in their regular product offering.

    In my case, I initially considered a visually appealing wheel set. However, after consulting with Bicycle Wheel Warehouse over the phone, they wisely advised me against a rim that might not provide the durability I sought, given my weight. Consequently, I ended up with a superior wheel set, featuring rims better suited to my weight and the road conditions where I ride my road bike.

    While profitability is a necessary aspect of business, Bicycle Wheel Warehouse operates with a distinct purpose. Their primary focus is not solely on profit, but on connecting individuals with the best possible wheels to elevate their cycling experience. This genuine concern for the well-being of each rider sets them apart.
