The DTC Victory Grips are a dedicated downhill race wheel. The huge aluminum accelerates quickly while the DTC Grip’s Urethane helps to maintain speed even under the most demanding of conditions.
DTC are known to maintain even wear and those who would regularly core wheels on a weekly basis will be hard-pressed to core these guys in under a month!
The DTC Victory Speeds are a downhill wheel with no equal. The metal core keeps you rolling and continuing to roll while the gum of the wheel lasts race upon race. If you’re wanting the ultimate downhill wheel, then go for DTC. The Victory is the medium wheel of the DTC Family.
The GUM A multipurpose urethane of a superior quality, each wheel is tested and manually checked. This gum is one major secret of DTC wheels; it gives them glide sharpness and a grip control.
The CORE The current market offers wheels with plastic wheel rims for very little cost whic are 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 aluminum 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 their 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.
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 of being 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.
