  • DT Swiss spoke calculator – HELP…!

    Need to replace the rear rim and spokes on my 2016 Spline EX 1501.

    Want to replace like with like, so the EX 471 rim, but what spokes?

    Or rather, what length spokes?

    But to find that out I need to know what hub i have.

    Anyone know what hub Spline EX 1501s come with?

    So many options and I don’t know what I’m doing.

    Contact DT via Facebook. They’ve always been pretty quick with info when I’ve asked in the past.

    It’s not too difficult to measure a hub, even if it’s still built into a wheel – you only need to measure three things, the rest are calcualted

    I find this spoke calc easier to use than a lot of the others too.

    What you need sir, is the 2016 DT Swiss Tech book.

    All the DT tech books are on here and have full details of end cap compatibility, what spokes are used on which wheels etc etc.

    Handy things

    Same spokes you already have. It’s printed on your rim isn’t it?
    Anyway choose 240 straight pull hubs and you’re good.to go with the calculator.
    I wouldn’t use anyone but DT’s calc for DT product.

    The 2016 Spline 1’s used non-standard hubs that weren’t the same as the aftermarket straight pull 240s.

    99% sure the dimensions are identical.

    I have a gen1 27.5 EX1501 rim here that has the specs as part of the rim decals saying;
    Front: 284/285 rear: 285/284

    DT’s Spoke calculator for a ‘standard’ IS 240 hub give spoke lengths in these exact roundings for a 471 rim – which is what the gen1 ex1501 uses iirc
    So, use the spoke lengths printed on your current rims, or input a regular 240 rim in your specific brake/axle specs.
    The handy thing about DT is that I can build a wheel on any of the EX/XM/XR rims with the same spokes… boost or non boost.
