Cyclocross is becoming more and more popular - and gravel bikes are moving right alongside them in the slipstream of cross bikes and road bikes. They all rely on efficient and durable wheels. With the CR 1600 Spline® DB 23 Cross-Road front wheel, the Swiss cycling specialist DT Swiss can provide the right companion for when your path takes you over icy, frozen forest floors, through ankle-deep mud or over dusty gravel tracks.

Thanks to the 26 mm wide, high-quality aluminium rim, the voluminous, off-road tyres receive excellent support and can build up more grip and cornering stability. Excellent tubeless compatibility provides less weight, improved puncture resistance, lower rolling resistance and more comfort when equipped with tubeless tyres. These are all important advantages for tough cross and gravel rides. The proven, 3D-milled DT Swiss Spline® hub, in conjunction with the streamlined aero blade spokes and their excellent bearings, ensures silky smooth running without friction loss.

On every adventure you embark on, the DT Swiss CR 1600 Spline® DB 23 front wheel will support you with outstanding performance and durability, and together with your powerful disc brakes it will bring you to a halt safely at all times, both on fast descents and in wet and muddy conditions.


All DT Swiss wheels are tubeless ready. The profiles of the DT Swiss rims are specially designed for tubeless use. The rim profile makes it easier to fit the right tyre and ensures a perfect fit. The tubeless system of the rim consists of DT Swiss Tubeless Ready Tape for sealing and a DT Swiss tubeless valve in a length that complies with the rim. When using tubeless ready tyres, it is mandatory to use a compatible sealant. However, it is also possible to use a conventional combination of tyre and inner tube.

Thanks to years of experience, DT Swiss only uses durable cartridge bearings without bearing play adjustment. DT Swiss hubs are designed to have the optimum axial and radial bearing play when they are properly installed. The correct preload of the bearings to compensate for the clamping force of the wheel mounting system is the basis for a play-free hub with minimum friction.

DT Pro Lock® prevents the spoke-nipple connection from loosening. In the Pro Lock® process, a special dual component adhesive is injected into the nipple thread, allowing for extremely durable wheel builds. By threading the nipple onto the spoke the adhesive is activated and then hardens completely within a few hours. Re-truing the wheel is possible, yet it will cause a slight decrease in the adhesive power each time.
