Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Wheel question

Hi everyone. I was planning on getting a DT Swiss 1100 dicut 50 wheelset. When I looked at the web it says Tubeless, I've seen 1 that says Clincher. I would like to know from you guys if this particular wheelset is A Clincher or Tubeless?

Thank You
pit

It's both. Tubeless are clinchers. You can run these wheels tubed or tubeless as you please.

Also a useful forum note if you put the @ (at) symbol before someones forum handle it will populate their handle and maybe others so you can actually mention them in the post so they see it when actually posted it shows as pit_usa and links but it will alert them to a new mention. Really handy.

Enjoy the new wheels either way. One last note sometimes tubeless rims can be hard to get clincher tires on. Not always but I have had a few that are a bit of work but generally once on unless a super duper stiff thick heavy tire it will likely settle and stretch a tiny bit to make it easier to get on and off. My Challenge open tubular tires (essentially non-vulcanized clinchers made like a tubular tire) are a huge pain initially but once installed they are pretty easy on and off (not to the point they feel loose or anything)

DT Swiss website says
All DT Swiss wheelsets are tubeless compatible and the ASM versions come tubeless ready, equipped with tubeless tape and valves.
One thing of note for the general clincher/tubeless wheel shopping experience - you can run clinchers on tubeless rims ('tubeless ready') because they still have hooks, but if they are 'hookless' tubeless wheels, they will not work for clinchers because they lack the hooks for the beads to sit in.

From left to right in the image below:
1. Old style clincher only 2. now common tubeless ready for both clincher and tubeless 3. hookless tubeless-only with pressure limitations

All DT Swiss wheelsets are tubeless compatible and some are tubeless ready (tape and valve installed)! Not sure since when though.
