Gravel Wheels – FAQ

What are gravel wheels?2021-12-31T19:58:56+02:00

Almost all gravel wheels are suitable for disc brakes and tubeless kits. The inner width of the rim oscillates between road wheels and MTB wheels, usually in the range of 20-25 mm to accommodate wider tyres. Gravel wheels are designed for varied terrain, smooth gravel, gravel or dirt roads, singletrack and asphalt.

How do gravel wheels differ from road wheels?2021-12-31T18:55:57+02:00

The main difference is the inner width of the rim. Gravel wheels are wider than road wheels to better accommodate wider tyres. While most road wheels have an inner rim width in the 17-21mm range, dedicated gravel wheels are usually around 20-25mm. The wheelsets available from built on DT Swiss rims have up to 24mm internal rim width.
