Very good deep-section rim, preferred by some Euro wheelbuilders because of their strength.
Not really comparable to CXP which is a much shallower section.

They make a very good wheel. I've got a set of DP18's on 105 rims.

These wheels have lasted me two years (both winter & summer training) and even the odd race when other wheels have been unreliable. I had the rear wheel trued twice in the first year and has been untouched since. I think they are unbeatable and offer superb value.

I have a set of wheel made by giant with only 12 spoke at the front and 16 at the rear. They use Rigida DP18 rims and they last for 4 year now whitout a lot of maintenance.
