The FX 1950 wheelset is their new 30mm (23mm ID) gravity inspired wheelset and features their Tricon technology. It utilizes 30 bladed spokes, has a 6 bolt disc brake interface, and can be ran tubeless (or tubed) right out of the box as the rim bed is sealed.
Available in a variety of wheel options (QR15, 20mm, 135mm x 10mm, 142mm, and 150mm). Claimed weights are 965g for the front wheel, and rear weights are marked at 1035g.
Some of the key Tricon benefits include:
Two piece hub design: The two piece flange and hub shell design keeps the bearing seat free of tension. This is to allow the bearings to spin as smoothly as possible.
Straight double threaded spokes: This spoke connection is considerably stronger as it is play free on both ends and therefore subject to smaller peak loads according to DT Swiss.
Star Ratchet : DT Swiss Ratchet System allows means hubs can easily be converted to different axle standards and rotors. Additionally the star ratchet can be upgraded to double the engagement.
Torx nipples – Thanks to the Torx design the truing tool has a better grip on the nipple.
Rim insert : The spoke inserts are supported on two sides in the rim creating a big contact surface. The rim
can be designed lighter and is airtight for tubeless compatibility.
Concave rim profile – The concave shaped sidewalls counteract the expansion force induced by tire pressure and spoke pull.
