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».
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
