Since 2006 DTC Wheels has been developing the best wheels in the market of Racing Downhill Freeride and Fast Freeride, but our team wants and needs more, the concurrence has been developing a lot around the original DTC Victory Concept (big core and wider contact patch), they did good, but they could do better ….
You can develop the best core with the minimum flex or torsion …. In plastic …. It will never even come close to an alucore, as an evidence, it’s just like a precision core made of plastic which is not comparable to alucore…. But all that we know for a long time already… for this reason the FIT-T CORE is in this new wheel.
The thane has always been our specialty, a wheels which lasts 10 to 15 times longer compared to any other wheels, wasn’t enough and we wanted more, so we start all from scratch and had a “short time” of two years of development to create and present proudly to you our SETAE thane- the result of 10 years of experience. At this point the wheels were already outstanding, but we wanted more…
The new shape was for sure a way to get more grip, less distance sliding, more precision control and square lips help a lot on rough road, but they disturb, if they are too thin on the outside of the wheels, so we made them inside the wheels to offer the more stability… but also 4 LIPS PER WHEELS… and to make sure all profiles stay stable in any condition we had a back structure inside the wheel, the result is a perfect straight wear down wheel to provide you more contact patch at any stage of the wheel’s life.
The result of all this research and experimenting is the NEW RAY SETAE 73x71mm with the contact patch of 10.5+54mm, the most advanced and performant Downhill wheels in the world
