DT Swiss RC 55 Spline C Road Wheel

The RC 55 SPLINE C is a lightweight, high-performance carbon road wheelset that provides a stiff platform to launch your attack. It starts with DT Swiss’s patented SPLINE Technology. Through SPLINE Technology the hub shells are intricately machined, while the spokes are cleverly positioned and the Two Pawl freewheel offers quick and safe engagements. The straight pull spokes are utilized for their absence of spoke elbows, eliminating the biggest weak point of conventional spokes, while increasing the overall stiffness of the wheel.

Combine the ingenious Two Pawl freewheel system with the new straight pull hubs, and the result is a firm, reactive wheel that excels at transferring your energy from your pedal strokes and into the forward motion. The combination of high attention to detail and the reliability that DT Swiss is known for, featured with the new SPLINE® technology, the RC 55 SPLINE C road wheel is engineered to meet the needs of the modern roadie, and will deliver great rides for many years to come.

DT Swiss RC 55 Spline C Road Wheel Technologies

  • Spline® Technology: SPLINE® wheel technology combines DT Swiss’ new straight pull hubs with their legendary Ratchet System® and a modern appearance to add yet another high performance wheelset to their already impressive lineup. Riders will feel the added stiffness from straight pull spokes and the aggressive design characteristics. Stiff, responsive, SPLINE®.

  • Carbon: Being a high-tech composite material consisting of fibers and resin, carbon can be used to resist the exact forces it is subjected to. This enables engineers to design parts with an unmatched strength to weight ratio.

  • Racket System®: This patented freewheel system uses precision ratchets, featuring extremely high load capacity and reliability. The no tool concept allows for an easy execution of routine maintenance.

  • Straightpull: SPLINE® wheels use high precision straight pull spokes for the perfect strength to weight ratio. Stronger than conventional spokes, straight pull spokes have no spoke elbow, which eliminates the weakest point of conventional spokes. They are still true- and replaceable with conventional tools.

  • Double Butted: Double butted spokes are thinner in the middle than at the ends. This is achieved through DT Swiss' unique cold forging technology, which reduces the diameter of the spoke for better strength to weight performance and improved elasticity.

  • Bladed Spokes: These spokes have a flat bladed central section for improved aerodynamics. As with their butted spokes, cold forging is used to produce the aero section and to optimize mechanical properties.

  • 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.

  • Prolock®: A patented liquid injected into the nipple thread allows for extremely durable wheel builds.

  • No Tools: No special tools needed for routine maintenance.

  • RWS: Patented wheelmounting system. Stiffer, safer and more user friendly than conventional quick releases. 100 % disc brake compatible.
