DT Swiss E 2200 Wheelset

4.17/5 (6 Reviews)

Product Description

Light enough to attack long distance uphills and durable enough to clear rough ­landings, and comfortable in the bike park or on ­gnarly singletracks. The FR 2350‘s little brother is a reliable friend for big adventures - and it‘s red!

    Strengths:    Hubs spin really well and the overall spec including supplied rim strip, QR rear skewer and wheel bags for travel are sweet they look sick too. Hand built and serviceable hubs. Can convert to through ax on rr hub.

    Weaknesses:    none yet after about 15+ rides.

    Bottom Line:   
    DT Swiss quality for $400 bucks? Can't beat it. They roll as good as any and look awesome. Wheel bags are a nice touch.

    Strengths:    Good looks, strong

    Weaknesses:    Inside of front hub was loose, not compatible with Fox 36 and Hope floating rotor, as disc rubs badly on front brake disc tabs. Overpriced

    Bottom Line:   
    This is an average wheelset at best with a price premium for the finish. Considering it can't be run with Fox 36 and the front hub came broken i won't be buying DT again soon.

    Strengths:    Strong! Strong! Strong! Good looks, hand built (make sure yours come with the signed certificate indicating who the hand builder was at DT), Did I say strong? Silky smooth bearings. They look like the Ferrarri of Wheels!!

    Weaknesses:    None! Could be a little lighter but 2200 grams is not bad for a rugged wheelset like these!

    Bottom Line:   
    Super strong wheels for the money and as fast as all gidddup!!

    Strengths:    Super strong wide red wheels , and look awesome. Very well priced for what you get.

    Weaknesses:    None yet

    Bottom Line:   
    I weight about 220lbs all geared up.... i dont pick the best lines and these wheels are bulletproof . I start and finish each ride from the same spot , so if i have decended 1000m i have pedalled up there before hand . Superstrong for the decents and light enough for climbs .

    Strengths:    strength,lighteness & good looking

    Weaknesses:    none so far

    Bottom Line:   
    with kenda 2.35 F & 2.1 r together with intense racelite tubes,it is only 400gm.heavier than my spinergy enduros.a more solid feel & it gives me more confident to do jumps & drops.the hubs needed servicing after 3 weeks but after that it was running great.

    i've given it a 4 overall rating 'cos the hubs needed to be serviced after afew rides.

    Overall, its performing well.

    Date Reviewed: October 5, 2008

    Strengths:    This is a strong wheelset that gives you confidence on meaty trails, very fast and the weight increase from a cross country wheelset is not noticable - also great looking (gets alot of comments from other riders)

    Weaknesses:    none to mention

    Bottom Line:   
    These are amazing wheels which just ooze coolness. They gave me instantly more confidence with big jumps/drops on my usual trails, very fast downhill and not a slouch up hills - highly recommend to anyone who hits their trails hard and fast.
