Comfort and speed combined. The new R 23 SPLINE® db wheels harmonize perfectly with big volume road and cyclocross tires. These assure more comfort in the saddle and more grip on- or off-road. Both results in a faster, more relaxed ride. Together with the laterally stiff build which uses high end bladed spokes, the R 23 SPLINE® lets you tackle the last climb of the day with enough energy to enjoy the looks of the hubs and to plan your next big ride.

Moonglu Opinion

Our best selling road disc wheelset and for good reason. The biggest problem in the wheel market today is the evolution of disc brake equipped road bikes. Many of these bikes are equipped with wheels that are far too heavy, in many cases over 2Kg. This is true of bikes ranging from £700 right up to £2000 and beyond. The stock wheels may look good but they don't perform and may make a really good bike appear sluggish.

This is the appeal of the R23 Spline Disc Brake wheels, at a smidge over 1650g there is potential to save 100s grams in rolling weight. That translates on the road to faster acceleration and easier climbing and that alone will transform how a bike rides. The classic silver and black styling is sensible and complimentary to most bike colours.

We are big fans of DT Swiss wheels, they offer hand built quality and finishing with that 'Factory' appeal. Their wheels feature fully serviceable hubs, standard spokes and replaceable rims so if the worst happens they can be salvaged by a good quality wheel builder, they're not bin fodder like some on the market. Most people default to the likes of Mavic and Fulcrum when they decide to upgrade but I couldn't recommend them for the reasons above, too many specialist components and expensive repairs.
