After the cooperation of DT Swiss and SWISS SIDE for the development of the ARC 1000 Dicut® wheels has set new standards in aerodynamics, the ARC 1400 Dicut® 62 rear wheel now offers even more riders to benefit from the possibilities DT Swiss aero wheels offer. The aerodynamic properties of the ARC 1400 Dicut® wheels are absolutely identical with ARC 1100 Dicut® Series wheels. You can’t see any difference at first sight, as they are only in the detail or, to be more precise, in the specification of the spokes and hubs – as well as in the waterslide rim decals with the respective product name, of course.
The ARC 1400 Dicut® 62 by DT Swiss combines powerful aerodynamics with excellent all-round qualities. The 62 mm deep aero rim combines high stiffness with a low weight and predestines the wheel for all kinds of triathlon courses as well as for fast and demanding flat stages. The leading component technology by DT Swiss and SWISS SIDE’s know-how in aerodynamics give the ARC 1400 Dicut® 62 unparalleled control and aero stability. Whether in competitions or on a relaxed training ride.
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 classic rim brakes. Very resistant to wind shear and crosswinds, it quickly rotates around the legendary DT 240s rear hub with outstanding bearings and the proven 18 SL ratchet freewheel system for maximum efficiency and outstanding power transfer. Bladed DT Swiss aero comp® straight pull spokes make sure the entire system offers a perfect balance of stiffness and comfort and 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 1400 Dicut® 62 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!
