Thanks to DT Swiss for inviting us to their factory. All opinions are the presenter's own.

Simon has a very special day at the DT Swiss factory, based in, you guessed it, Switzerland. He gets to understand how spokes are made and how their world famous wheels are tested & built.

Let us know what you think of Si’s guided tour of the DT Swiss factory in the comments below

Simon gets to see technology that is exclusive to DT Swiss as well as handling a hot spoke, yep, a hot spoke. Some things however, remain a secret close to DT Swiss, there is a reason they’ve been in existence for so long

Wheels are tested for both impact as well as imitation of surfaces to ensure that they are perfect for consumers. Oh, and how about those ratchet freehubs, got to love them.

Strain gauges can be attached to prototype and development wheels so that they can be assessed and refined before going into production, the gauges look very cool.

Simon finally gets to check out where the wheels are built for sponsored riders/teams, he also built a wheel himself here is the video for that
