DE40 stands for Do Everything.
Gravel ride? Cyclocross? Crit racing? Yup. Everything you would want to do with a 700C wheel, you can do it on these rims right here. The 23mm internal begs for a wider tire, while the 40mm depth keeps you rolling fast. The simple, understated decals make it easy to pair well with any bike in your stable. Designed after our XC 29" rims, this is our first semi-hooked clincher-type tubeless system in carbon. We went this route to take high pressure tires, while still maintaining the durability of our MTB line. Add in some aerodynamic advantanges with the DE40 hitting 32.2mm at its widest point, and this fat mid-section keeps you rolling fast through the air while allowing for a some comfortable give in the rougher sections.
All the weight advantage of our light-weight carbon rims expertly laced to Industry Nine's world-famous Torch Road Disc hubs made in North Carolina.
24 holes and disc only.

Competition spokes will give an overall strong build that will last and last. So if your trails are always rough, your bike is packed down, you point-and-shoot rather than pick your line, or you're closer to the weight limits right now, we suggest going this route.
Revolution spokes are incredibly strong for their weight class -- there's a reason we've stuck with DT Swiss for so many years. This build is intended for the best of both worlds, a light weight, wide carbon wheel set that handles the rough stuff. So build with these spokes if you're chasing friends, KOM/QOM/TOM's or podiums. Performance without compromise. Our suggestion is a total combined weight limit of 200lbs for this build, and an aversion to enduro racing.
We require brass nipples on builds meant for New York for warranty purposes.
