The FR 2350‘s little brother, the DT Swiss E2200 wheelset are designed for All Mountain riding, and are a swanky red color. Light enough to attack long distance uphills and durable enough to clear rough landings, and comfortable in the bike park or on single track attacks, these wheels have steeze, no doubt about it.The DT Swiss E2200 wheelset utilizes a red hoop, with black spokes and a red hub, all combined to give the wheels a sexy look and are backed by the DT Swiss guarantee. Little brother to the FR 2350 wheelset, these wheels use a sleeved joint at the rim seem instead of welded it up, and are built with DT Swiss's own double butted spokes.
The front wheel features a burly 20mm thru axle for added rigidity, while not adding much weight. A nice benefit of the 20mm thru axle system is it stiffens up the fork legs by adding another support that parallels the arch. Weighing in at 1025 grams, the front wheels is nice and light, and is produced with nothing but Swiss quality.
The rear wheel from the E2200 wheelset comes in 135x10mm spacing, and uses a regular DT Swiss quick release. The driver is a 2 pawl system for reliability and strength, and uses the same double butted spokes as the front wheel. Weighing in at 1255 grams (with the QR), the rear wheel only out weighs the front by 230 grams.
All together these wheels weigh 2280 grams (with the QR), have a sick red finish, and will add some serious brownie points with your local riding crew. Check out DT Swiss-US.com
