When tracks get really, really rocky and the roots are thicker than your legs, it is time to choose a wheel like the E 1700 SPLINE 30. Paired to a 2.5-inch tire you end up with an enormous amount of grip, allowing you to attack even the nastiest sections quite relaxed. The wheel build with double butted Competition spokes in their strongest straight pull edition is based on DT's reliable and lightweight Ratchet System hubs. A combination just right for Enduro use: strong enough to go through anything, light enough to get there.
Tubeless-ready rims are compatible with both standard and tubeless-ready tires. When a tubeless-ready tire is mounted on a tubeless-ready rim with special tubeless rim tape, valve, and sealant, the tire and rim form an airtight chamber that no longer requires a tube. This lets you run lower tire pressure with less fear of pinch flats and without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction and lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces. The rim can always be used with a tube, as well, by simply removing the tubeless valve stem and installing a standard tube like you would with any non-tubeless tire.
