The first road racing rim! Due to its light weight, the solid interior construction, CNC machined side walls and our SBWT welding technology, the RR 1.1 is a revolutionary new DT Swiss product. 100% swiss made, pat. pending.

Strengths:    Light and solid feeling. I had mine built with 240s hubs and DT double butted spokes 3X/32 hole. Loved them until an eyelet split on the rear wheel. It might be partly due to the tires and tubes, but these wheels were so perfectly balanced, like nothing else I had ever ridden on.

Weaknesses:    Not as durable as I would have hoped.

Bottom Line:   
Maybe the failure was due to the fact that I am a Clydesdale (215lbs, give or take a few) riding on the not so perfect streets of suburban North Eastern U.S.. I have never had a rim crack before, and also never had such exotic parts. I had put, maybe 1500 miles on those wheels before the rear rim cracked (the front wheel is still perfect). Otherwise, these were the nicest wheels I have ever owned. I wouldn't buy the same hoops again, but I might buy the new DT Swiss RR 440 Asymmetric rim and lace it to that sweet 240S hub I am not using at this time.

Strengths:    Solid value, will build into a light and strong wheel. Nice finish, attractive design, good braking surface.

Weaknesses:    Eyelet holds nipple pretty tight, turning the spokes can be a little tough when lacing these up.

Bottom Line:   
I laced these up 3-cross to my Campy Record-10 hubs using 14/15 comp spokes. So far these rims are great, haven't needed to take a spoke wrench to them once. I run 180lbs. Living in a city I encounter lots of potholes and go off a curb sometimes. I can stop effectively with these and can scrub speed on a downhill faster than some lighter guys on fancier rides which gives me a lot of confidence. I would recommend these rims and would build another wheelset with them in the future.

Strengths:    - good looking
- resonable price
- low weight

Weaknesses:    - prone to cracking around eyelets

Bottom Line:   
If you are looking for strong and reliable rim stay away from this rim, at least single eyelet version. As many here mine developed cracks soon after built and after a minor crash few spokes pulled nipples entirely out of the rim.
