The DT Swiss ARC 1100 Dicut® 48 DB rear wheel impressively proves what happens when a traditional manufacturer of high-performance bike wheels and a worldwide renowned aerodynamics specialist with more than 50 years of experience in the elite class of motor sports get together to realise a common vision. With SWISS SIDE, DT Swiss has found a partner that is not just in close geographical proximity but that is also committed to providing customers with the same Swiss precision. By using state-of-the-art technologies and innovative technical know-how, the two partners push the limits of aerodynamics, material properties, as well as of the wheels’ construction and design in professional cycling.
Thus, the ARC 1100 Dicut® 48 is the puncheur wheel in the aero line-up of DT Swiss. A 48 mm deep aero rim, high stiffness and a low weight help you roll the terrain in the peloton to save energy before launching your final attack at the right time. The wheels are easy to control, even in adverse weather conditions. Besides, they are the perfect choice for all smaller & lighter riders who don’t want to do without aero wheels.
The AERO+ carbon rim that was developed based on sophisticated, computer aided simulations and numerous wind tunnel tests is just one part of the entire aerodynamic wheel system optimised for use in combination with powerful disc brakes. Very resistant to wind shear and crosswinds, it quickly rotates around the legendary DT 240s rear hub with outstanding SINC Ceramic bearings and the proven 36 SL ratchet freewheel system for maximum efficiency and outstanding power transfer. Your muscle power is transferred through a strong combination of DT Swiss aerolite® bladed straight pull and aero comp® bladed straight pull spokes that give the entire system a perfect balance between comfort and stiffness. DT ProLock hidden aluminium nipples inside the rim additionally ensure minimum air turbulence. Together, spokes and nipples significantly reduce rotational drag – e.g. the aerodynamic drag created by rim, spokes and nipples when the wheel rotates in the air that contributes up to 25% to the total aerodynamic drag.
Excellent tubeless compatibility provides less weight, improved puncture resistance, lower rolling resistance and more comfort when equipped with tubeless tyres. To get the most effective system overall onto the road, DT Swiss recommends combining the ARC 1100 Dicut® 48 DB rear wheel with 25mm tyres.
This guarantees maximum riding pleasure when fighting for your best time. Check out the result of the extraordinary partnership between DT Swiss and “Aerodynamics by SWISS SIDE” now!
