A true workhorse, the HX 1700 is designed from the ground up to be the most reliable and dependable choice for those who want their E-MTB out on the trail where it belongs, not in the workstand

E-MTB's are tough on wheels, really tough, not only is there the added weight and higher maximum drive torque but E-MTB riders tend to ride further and more frequently, this adds up to a real challenge for anyone looking to design a truly durable wheel for long term E-MTB use

The result is DT's mission Hybrid, the first wheel engineering project to look specifically at the challenges of heavy duty E-MTB use for wheels

So, what's changed? the short answer... Everything!

At the core of the HX 1700' are a custom version of DT's legendarily reliable 350 hubs with E-MTB-optimised 24-tooth ratchets and oversized hub shells for improved load transfer

The welded alloy rims have reinforced spoke beds to resist fatigue and handle high loads for long periods of time

The straight pull spokes are custom made for Hybrid with an oversized 2.35 mm hub interface designed to protect one of the key points of stress on any wheel

In order for a wheel to pass as Hybrid certified in DT's inhouse testing lab it has to survive 50% more lifecycles, its spokes and rims have to endure 20% higher load tests and the bearings must be able to handle almost twice the maximum load of a standard wheel

Whilst intended for E-MTB use, the Hybrid range is also ideal for larger riders, bike packers or anyone looking for a really durable wheelset with a high weight limit
