Concept roues DTC

the gum

A multipurpose urethane of a superior quality, each wheel is tested, manually checked, this gum is one major secret of DTC wheels, it gives them glide sharpness and a grip control.

dated wheels

A wheel has a permanent evolution throughout its life, young DTC wheels (less than 6 months) will have an unequalled grip but a faster wear, and also "a heavy and fat" glide. At the end, these performances steer toward competition. At the opposite, a more mature wheel (more than 6 months) does not harden but changes its characteristics, it will have less grip, will give the sensation to be indestructible, so the glide will be "dry and light", more tolerant, it will be perfect for free ride and the old school style.
That's why each wheel is delivered 1 month after molding.

Philosophy

DTC, a company which was born from blend of performance, and passion for downhill
skateboarding.

The actual market offers us high performance wheels which do not accept mistakes,
the result of it is a concentrated and restricted ride without any flexibility, and the outcome is
a drop of pleasure and output. At the opposite "hyper tolerant wheels" bring back the old
school passion, but once again, the performance isn't here.

Our wish was to create wheels that blend performance and tolerance, which looked like impossible
before, but thanks to some superior quality selection, at the know-how of specialized craftsmen and
the experience of our team riders, we finally had this famous result.

DTC is still unequalled today when it comes to quality, reliability, durability and performance.

rimes

The current market offers wheels with plastic wheel rims for a very little cost and quite flexible, furthermore some of these plastics aren't compatible with urethane, which is causing in certain cases the separation of materials, DTC wheel rims are draft in aluminium with a precision of +0.05mm and built to guarantee a perfect stiffness, which influences directly the way they grip and the "flat wear" of the wheels. It's normal for a DTC wheel to ride over 1000km, bearing our heaviest riders on a wild pace without losing the parallelism (1mm max of cone) of the tread, this speciality of "flat wear" increases the control at high speed. The gum is laying on its entire surface on the ground, firmly held by the wheel rim, which eliminates the sensation of wavering due to the soft point of a traditional wheel.
