Moonglu Wheelworks Hand Built E-Mountain Bike Rear Wheel

Heavy duty Electric Mountain Bike Specific Rear Wheel. DT Swiss 240s Hybrid hub built into DT Swiss HX531 35mm wide profile E-bike rated 27.5" or 29" rim.

Electric mountain bikes place high demands on wheels. Whether it is a broken spoke every other ride or rims that aren't up to the job, E-mountain bikes place unique stresses on wheels that were never designed for that purpose. DT Swiss have taken their knowledge of high end mountain bike wheels and produced a range of E-bike specific rim and hubs to suit the growing market of modern E mountain bike. 

Rim

  • E-MTB's are a whole ton of fun but there's no denying that they are extremely hard on components, especially wheels
  • It's not just the extra mass; the huge, sustained torque an E-bike and rider can produce means standard wheels simply don't last
  • This is where DT's Mission Hybrid comes in, a whole line of wheels and components specifically designed to go the distance under regular E-MTB usage
  • For the Hybrid rims the key difference is a thicker, reinforced spoke bed, increasing Pull-through force by 20% at a key failure point for E-MTBs and greatly extending fatigue life for minimal weight gain
  • The tubeless ready optimized rim bed provides fast tyre installation, a great tyre fit, and quick trouble-free tubeless setup
  • The DT Swiss welding process leaves an extremely consistent and strong weld joint
  • The included PHR washers and convex Squorx nipples naturally align perfectly with your chosen spokes, increasing stiffness and durability with no weight penalty over traditional eyeleted rims
  • Unique process for the black coating produces a tough and durable finish
  • Weight limit: 150 KG
  • ERD 563 mm (27.5 inch) or 601 mm (29 inch), Weight 555 grams (27.5 inch) or 590 grams (29 inch)
  • Outer width 35 mm Inner width 30 mm
  • Height 21 mm

Hub

  • E-Bikers, Bike packers, Backcountry tourers, Clydesdales, Off-road Tandem lunatics, here is your hub
  • After seeing the massive strains placed upon hubs by the huge, sustained torque generated by E-MTB's DT Swiss took their benchmark 240s hub back to the drawing board and reworked it from the ground up for ultimate toughness
  • The result is the most durable, reliable hub on the market with only a minor weight penalty over our standard 240s
  • The hub shell and axle has been reinforced and have been proven to demonstrate over twice the fatigue life by DT's in-house torture lab
  • 24-tooth steel ratchets offer an optimum balance between engagement, reliability and sheer strength, making them 25% stronger than our already legendarily reliable freehub system
  • CNC'd steel freehub bodies for ultimate reliability under high-torque
  • Oversized custom bearings, and improved contact-free double flange sealing
  • Even with all these changes the Hybrids are still 240's at heart so they can be easily serviced just like any other DT hub
  • 148x12mm Thru Axle BOOST

All our DT Swiss rim equipped wheels now have the option of silver alloy Squorx Prolock spoke nipples or Sapim Double Square Secure Lock Brass in Silver or Black. All these options are compatible with DT PHR washers. The use of these nipples allows us to use a slightly longer spoke for added strength and to build the wheels from the outside, reducing tooling marks on the spoke nipple. 

Build specification:

  • 1 x DT 240s Hybrid BOOST (148x12mm) 32 hole rear hub with Shimano 10/11 speed freehub (suitable for SRAM SX/NX 12 speed cassettes)
  • 32 x Sapim Race Stainless Steel Double Butted Spokes Black or Silver
  • 1 x DT Swiss HX531 Disc only rim

Further Information

  • These rims are tubeless compatible, they will be fitted by Moonglu with 2 rounds of tubeless tape.
  • For all the wheel aficionados, we build all our wheels with the hub logo lined up with the rim valve hole. A small matter, but important to those with a wheel fetish.
  • The wheel weights quoted above are genuine, complete wheels measured in the shop.
  • For further information about our wheel builds please refer to our Wheel Building FAQs.
  • Warranty Policy

Build time

Before ordering these wheels, please understand that the wheels will generally be built to order from the component parts. Items shown instock will be instock in their component parts, ready to be laced up, tensioned and trued. In most cases we can't pluck these wheels off the shelf, pack them into boxes and dispatch them, if only life was that easy. We will do our utmost to make the turnaround time as quick as possible (currently 2 weeks), but if you are in doubt, please Contact us first. 

Wheel Builder's Comments

Probably the ultimate E-bike rated rear wheel. Super tough rim and legendary hub drive mechanism that won't let you down.
