The new wheel includes a 42mm profound air edge with a wide 24mm interior distance across that is improved to work with 35mm wide tires.
This all-new edge is bound through a Spline center point that depends on the flyweight 240 internals. At the back the freehub body is convertible between Shimano, SRAM XD and XDR for 12-speed AXS frameworks.
The edge profundity is truly noteworthy and appropriately streamlined contrasted with most rock wheels we’ve seen up until now. That is truly placing them in accordance with Zipp’s 303 tubeless plate (45mm profound, 21mm inside, 1,645g weight, £1,986), which has discovered support in both ‘cross and rock.
Weight shrewd, it’s a comparative story to the 303s with the DTs arriving in a bit lighter at 1,634g (700c) and 1,562g (650b), and the bigger inside width should give the DTs an edge with regards to bigger tire widths.

DT claims that the new edge profile isn’t just fundamentally snappier than its past CRC1400 offering — the CRC1400 being one of our untouched most loved rock wheelsets — yet in addition, that the GRC’s more extensive reshaped edge (24mm contrasted with 22) improves footing by altogether amplifying the contact territory of the tire and improving sidewall soundness when utilizing the equivalent 35mm tire.
It likewise asserts that the reshaping takes into consideration more air volume, and you can in this manner run less weight and improve comfort. So it appears that DT is guaranteeing wins all-round for the new edge shape.
