DM8 Elite series RS-ThirtyEights are fast & smooth

The DM8 Elite Series wheels are hand made in my Speed Shop with the same passion & precision I devote to the more expensive Pro & SL Series wheels. With each pair weighing in on average a mere 85g more than their DM8 Pro Series cousins, these RS38s are not only made super strong and robust for everyday use. Come race day or that big sportive, you'll be the rider setting the pace.   

Every Elite Series wheel is made with:

- DM8 Fat Boy Rim: the same super fast, extra wide rim profiles found in the DM8 PRO & SL series wheels
- Strong & highly durable custom stainless steel spokes: they may add a few grams per pair, but they shave off the £pounds!

Engineered as the lightest wheels in the range, RS38s spin effortlessly on every course and in all weathers. Road, gravel, CX or round & round the velodrome - just choose the right hub for your ride and your bike.

Incredible levels of all-weather grip, comfort and speed come with all DM8 wheels as standard, thanks to the only rim on the market engineered specifically to make the most out of true-width 25mm tyres.

Match with a fast 23-25mm tyre, add just a little air - the sweet spot is somewhere between 55 and 75psi for most road conditions and rider weights - and prepare to float fast over the roughest of road surfaces and on over your favourite cobbled bergs.

DM8s can be made for standard road bikes with QR axles and rim brakes, or for your disc-braked road, gravel, adventure or cross bike, with either 12 or 15mm thru-axles. If you're racing the boards or Red Hook crits, choose our fixed gear track build.
