What It Is The definitive mountain wheel. The M6 Series defines the modern and varied interpretation of the mountain bike. Loaded with traction and acceleration on the climb, it's also backed with precision and control while absorbing vibrations and impacts on the descent. The M6 Series is designed in two diameters and three widths to ensure your sophisticated preference for tire size and pressure is met with an uncompromising tire-to-rim interface. Who It's For The mountain biker who wonders what is possible, the skeptic afraid of "plastic" wheels, the weight weenie, the Clydesdale, the high-mileage guy, the weekend warrior. It would be easier to describe who it is not for… Why We Made It ENVE showed the world that a mountain bike wheel could be carbon — we're still immensely proud of that achievement. A mountain bike wheel, however, can be so much more. The M6 Series is not about technical challenges, and we refuse to chase specifications in order to be the widest, tallest, or stiffest. For the M6 Series of wheels, the question was not about carbon, rather, "What is the potential of a mountain bike wheel?" Each M6 Series wheel model is designed for the broad range of tire widths, hub configurations, and sizes so that you, the modern trail rider, can choose between them.
The Enduro incarnation of the SPLINE ONE line-up. Based on a rim that has survived top to bottom runs without a tire under world class riders such as Aaron Gwin, the EX 1501 SPLINE ONE 25 has nothing to prove when it comes to strength. For Enduro racers it comes in handy that it features tech details like the specially developed rim surface hardening process for increased durability at no additional weight. Being built of DT's highest-end components through and through, it should come as no surprise that Jared Graves and Richie Rude have been dominating the EWS on this exact wheelset.

With even the EWS race courses getting tougher and tougher and tire manufacturers offering Enduro-strong tires in 2.5-inch sizes, the demand from DT's pros for a wide, Enduro tough wheelset came up and DT responded by developing the EX 1501 SPLINE ONE 30. Often used as a front wheel to generate as much grip where you need it most, it is the wheel for those hunting after the toughest of tracks or those living right in the Alps. Strong, lightweight, and tough as nails, the EX 1501 30 is ready for just about anything.
The aluminum Enduro wheelset made for the roughest Enduro tracks around the world. We have taken all our aluminum wheel know-how and put it into this high-performing package.

The rim profile is designed to withstand the hardest use of Enduro racing while still keeping the weight low for long and demanding uphills. Laced to double-butted competition straight-pull spokes, the EX 1700 SPLINE wheels are built to take a beating.
Learning from our very successful EWS riders, we designed the rims for the EXC 1200 SPLINE 30 to be tough enough for everything the best in the sport can throw at them yet light enough to spin all day. And, they're the right width to accommodate today's high-volume enduro tires. This rim is complemented by our completely new top-end Ratchet System hubs which maintain the lightweight theme, as do the bladed and butted straight-pull spokes. The result is any enduro rider's dream wheel: Peace-of-mind in the downhills and enough breath for a chat on the climbs.
Rainy days, wet soil, rocks and roots. The tubeless tires somehow find grip. The M 1700 SPLINE 25 comes stock with tubeless rim tape and valves, just the right tool for demanding trails.

Reactive means fun, and fun is why we are all doing this, right?
