Historically, DT Swiss was founded in Switzerland in 1634 and specialized in wire drawing. We find the wire drawing activity in the brand name.
The abbreviation DT was derived from the name in German and French of the former company "Vereinigte Drahtwerke / Tréfileries réunies". Even today, the abbreviation DT is an important part of the corporate name. The D stands for Drahtwerke and the T for Drahtwerke.
The brand's philosophy has always been to offer innovative products with a modern design and Swiss quality. Thanks to the feedback from professional riders, test drivers from all disciplines and the use of innovative components, the brand is a multiple world champion.
