Since the beginning of April, DT Swiss is heading in a new direction with their MISSION HYBRID. Passionate eMountainbike riders at DT Swiss recognized that eMTB has several new challenges for the bike componentry to overcome.
Standard components are not developed for the higher weights, higher torque and longer distances of the eMTB use. With HYBRID, DT Swiss is on the mission to surmount these new challenges with wheels developed specifically for eMTB. Many small but clever improvements to each of the wheel components enables greater performance as well as improved durability. With the following HYBRID Video Series we would like to give you a short behind the scenes look into the testing and development as well as the final HYBRID products.
