The DT Swiss EX 511

In short, this rim is designed with one thing in mind, to shred burlier terrain faster & faster.

Bottom Line:

At approximately 45 grams heavier than the 481 with the same 30mm internal width. The new 511 was designed to better withstand the abuse of all-mountain racing. As for the difference between the EX 511 and the indestructible EX 471 enduro rim–5mm of width and about 60 grams.
