Be ready for UNPAVED ADVENTURES!
With the launch of their gravel-dedicated system wheels, the wheel specialists of the traditional manufacturer DT Swiss discover a new territory that used to be reserved for mountain bikers in the past but today fascinates adventurous road cyclists.
With the GRC 1400 SPLINE® 42 carbon rear wheel, you are perfectly equipped for maximum speed on unpaved gravel roads. After all, it is the uncrowned racing king of DT Swiss’ gravel family!
Developed in cooperation with the aerodynamics experts of SWISS SIDE and highly sophisticated in technical terms, the hookless carbon fibre rim primarily stands out for aerodynamic efficiency and high durability. An inner rim width of 24mm additionally provides a large tyre volume, which takes comfort on demanding gravel roads to a new level.
Optimised for use with powerful disc brakes, the elegant carbon rim quickly rotates around the legendary DT 240s rear hub with excellent bearings and the proven 36 SL ratchet freewheel system for maximum efficiency and outstanding power transfer. Bladed DT Swiss aero comp® straight pull spokes make sure the entire wheel system offers a perfect balance of stiffness and comfort and DT ProLock hidden aluminium nipples inside the rim additionally ensure minimum air turbulence.
For maximum off-road performance, the DT Swiss GRC 1400 SPLINE® 42 wheel also offers excellent tubeless compatibility. When used without tubes, you’ll benefit from less weight, improved puncture resistance, reduced rolling resistance and increased comfort, since you can ride with lower air pressure on unpaved roads.
All these factors make this rear wheel the perfect choice for your next gravel adventure!
