DT Swiss GR 1600 SPLINE 25 Gravel Wheels Review


DT Swiss CR 1600 SPLINE 23 Cyclocross wheelset became so popular after it was introduced. But to the world’s dismay, a new outstanding model is out which will wow you in all aspects. A new wheelset known as the Gravel Specific wheels can do better than the DT Swiss CR 1600 wheelset.

During the gravel bike group test, it was discovered that this component of the bike market is as different as its riders. DT Swiss express both poles of this spectrum with their current gravel wheels, introducing us to three other wheelsets produced from an aerodynamically optimized carbon alternative to a more accessible and s

traightforward to maintain aluminum.

DT Swiss gives only the GR 1600 Spline 25 wheels combined with spline Center Lock interfaces. However, despite the fair price, both SRAM XDR and Shimano HG freehub bodies are encompassed. Furthermore, The method of being clasped together is standard. Each wheel uses DT Swiss Prolock aluminum and 24 DT straight-pull stainless steel blades spots. Six-bolt adapters can sometimes be added as tubeless valve stems, and the edges are taped with tubeless tape. The modern DT Swiss hubs end caps are interchangeable between differences of formal criteria.

Due to the presence of the thick and vast channel, tubeless tires are mounted easily down the middle of the rim bed. Hence, the fire fitment is very safe.

700c Rims Wheel size of the DT Swiss GR

650b wheels seem to have lost their taste recently. Current bikes are being released regularly, which can rectify tires on 700c rims that are so vast as you’d use on a 650b wheel. But with the tire width the same size, the larger 700c wheels are better, more convenient, and able to ride over rough year’s cape and offer better comfort and comfort.

But do you think there is still a place for the 650b wheel size?

Yes, there is still a place if all the rider is doing is monster-cross, essentially-mountain-biking-but-on-curly-handlebars type riding, then 700c wheels and oversized tires will go the best setup for riders riding on mountains or hard surfaces.

Thus, if a rider ends up using part of his time on smooth sections or roads, or he has plans for road bike packing trips, then it will be nice to be able to change between 32 or 35mm wide fast and easy-rolling tires, super-capable tires that are the right tool for the job.

Is DT Swiss pudding perfect?

Honestly, these DT Swiss wheels are also another illustration of a product that had sold quickly. But the timeline keeps getting pushed away for so many reasons. Looking at the good side, though, these uncertainties mean that riders have ridden these wheels annually, up to 18 months, with many different tires. Due to this, these riders are more than comforting their reviews concerning their experience. The more it is being ridden, the more wondrous they become.

Can reinvent the gravel wheel

DT Swiss can be very expensive to purchase.


DT Swiss made more sales for its producers, as a result of this closing the vital gap in their product line-up due to their recent gravel wheelset range. Although the existing CR series wheels are also satisfactory for gravel function, GR and G wheels introduced here are nicely fitted to the new trends in the gravel market more extensively and better. It improved comfort via large-volume tires and more control due to the availability of sidewall support which is among the features that will help any gravel rider.
