THE EVOLUTION OF THE REVOLUTION – NEW ROAD WHEELS 2019

One and a half year ago we started proclaiming our roadrevolution18 campaign. With more than 30 different new road wheel models we launched the most advanced and consistently structured product portfolio in the high-performance road bike market. For the upcoming model year we are refining the roadrevolution18 line-up and further strengthen the five categories Aero, Performance, Endurance, Cross Road & Track. Go ahead and find out about the new 2019 road wheel line-up!

THE PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Our five wheel categories form the basis for the road wheel line-up 2019. Each individual DT Swiss wheelset has been developed for a specific application and accordingly assigned to one of the five categories. This unique and benchmark setting concept secures that every ambitious rider can find the ideal wheelset in our selection.
The product naming follows a clear and easy to understand structure. The first letter of the product name refers to the corresponding category and the type of rim. For example, ARC stands for Aero Road Carbon. The four digit number refers to the hub level. The lower the number, the higher the performance of the hub. For example 1100 means based on a 240s hub with SINC ceramic bearings and Ratchet System technology. The names of the various wheel families (SPLINE, DICUT & CLASSIC) are also part of the product name, as are the rim height and – in the case of disc brakes – the abbreviation «db».

AERO

ARC 1400 DICUT

The ARC 1100 DICUT wheels have set a new benchmark in wheel aerodynamics. Our second step is to bring this fantastic technology to the 1400 level in order to give even more riders the opportunity to benefit from DT Swiss aero wheels. The aerodynamic performance of the ARC 1400 DICUT wheels is identical to that of the ARC 1100 DICUT series. The difference lies in the details, with variations in the hub and spoke specification of the ARC 1400 DICUT wheels.

PERFORMANCE

PRC 1100 DICUT

The PRC 1100 DICUT wheels are the pinnacle of the Performance category. For all those who aim high and like to stay exclusive. As soon as the road gets steeper and the air becomes thinner, these wheels deliver their full potential. The PRC 1100 DICUT are composed exclusively of our most sophisticated components. A modern and extremely light full-carbon rim, an aerodynamically optimized hubshell, the superior proven Ratchet System as well as SINC ceramic bearings. Still not convinced? Well, take a look at the exclusive Mon Chasseral version with a carbon hub shell. Our final and best argument.

The OXiC technology wheel range is growing. Together with the extremely popular 21 mm low profile OXiC rim, the new PR 1400 DICUT 32 OXiC will be the pinnacle of aluminum road wheels. The ceramic OXiC surface coating gives rim brakes a whole new level of braking performance. The rims are wide, medium-profile and super strong, ensuring outstanding durability and reliability. A tubeless setup adds supreme comfort and grip to the athletic properties of this wheel set.
ENDURANCE

ER 1400 DICUT 21

Nowadays, road riding is about much more than simply riding on a road. Gravel, bad choppy roads, fenders, lights, disc brakes and even racks have broadened our horizons. The ER 1400 DICUT 21 is your premium alloy choice if you carried on reading after the word rack. Equipped with a 20 mm wide, super-light and resilient rim as well as a sharp DICUT hub based on the classic 240s, it is just what you need when your ride leads you into the unknown, navigating numerous adventures along the way.

ER 1600 DICUT 21

Featuring a premium lightweight rim and a tough DICUT hub based on the classic 350, the ER 1600 DICUT 21 is a wheel that marries good climbing abilities with a precision ride. A wheel set able to perform every day and in all locations, no matter how tough the conditions are. The wide rim and the superb Ratchet System hub add traction and reliability to the mix, perfect for riding all year, on all roads and mixed terrain.

E 1800 SPLINE 32

At the core of this allround wheelset lies a modern, wide and light aluminum rim. As the foundation of the wheel, it makes for a balanced width to stiffness to weight ratio. This rim is complemented by a hub featuring DT Swiss’ proven pawl system freehub as well as a high-end build with bladed spokes and elaborate alloy nipples. These features make it a premium training wheelset, easily able to race your mates when the city limit sign comes up.

    Writing as a satisfied customer for many years, bought spline db 23 and had two pairs of dt swiss wheels hand built, with 240 hubs.
    My question is about rims. What are at thsi moment the top segment rim and spokes to build around a 240 hub? Bearing in mind that I weigh 85 kg and that I am more of an endurance rider (200+ all day rides that are hilly, very rarely races). Also, will there be a carbon rim for selection later?

      Hi Bart, top segment alloy road rims are the RR411 and RR511. Choice of spokes could be Aerocomp or Aerolite. Carbon rims for custom wheel building are not available and not planned for the near future. Best regards, Kai

    Lately It happened I had a few weird pinches (and then flat tires) on my PR1400 DICUT (back wheel). I wonder if the problem is the tube too small (I use the standard 700x21x25) or the rim tape. Now I put another tape over the old one. Any advice?

      Dear Gabriele, on the asymmetric rim it may happen that the tape moves slightly and causes pinches. We recommend to apply two layers of tape in such a case.
      Best regards, Kai
