DT Swiss A 1800 Spline 30 – Aerodynamic design made of aluminum
The DT Swiss aluminum aero wheels tested
DT Swiss is known for its high-quality rims, spokes and hubs and their precise workmanship. The A 1800 Spline wheels are no exception. Even under demanding conditions, the aluminum aero wheels should withstand a number of challenges. A small visual flaw that caught our eye is a seam on the rim that sticks out a bit, otherwise we have nothing to complain about at first glance.
Only the generous weight of almost 1700 grams has a negative impact here and there on the driving experience compared to the significantly more expensive carbon models. This is particularly noticeable uphill, but also when starting off. Nevertheless, the DT Swiss A 1800 Spline roll pleasantly quickly over long distances and, thanks to their robust setup, cover a wide range of applications. Overall, they offer a very successful combination of aerodynamics, robust construction and attractive price-performance ratio and are therefore simply solid wheels with a high-quality construction.
