DMR Thret HD Custom wheelset review
DMR are well known among dirt jumpers and 4X riders, but this seriously tough wheelset shows they deserve wider recognition. At just over 500g, the new Thret rim is 250g lighter than previous DMR hoops, although chunky hubs and thick 36-spoke lacing mean it’s still an effort to get them going – but these hand-built wheels have proved unfalteringly stiff and strong.
The DMR front hub is fully axle versatile and the superfast pick-up six-pawl rear comes in bolted or 12mm bolt-through options. They’re proven for taking the biggest drops or most savage power snap without flinching, and there’s no trace of flex on the trail. Both rims and hubs are available in a wide range of colours.
