The latest generation of ARC 1100 DICUT wheels was developed in cooperation with SWISS SIDE, leading expert in aerodynamic optimization. Consequently, the new AERO+ rim profile minimizes both aero drag and steering moment to improve its aerodynamic and controlling in even strong cross wind.
Wider means faster: DT Swiss ARC Disc 1100 Dicut Carbon with 50mm rim hight
Thus, it makes it easier for the rider to keep the aero wheel under control while taking advantage of the forward-pushing sailing effect. The wheel setup is completed by the new DT Swiss aero spokes in combination with the ultra-light running SINC ceramic bearings.

ARC Rim Technology
DT Swiss is a disc fan: the greater freedom provided by the disc brake system gives the Swiss wheel specialists completely new possibilities in rim design. With the AERO+ concept, they have focused on the overall handling of the wheel. The two rim shapes V and U established in the racing bike industry become VU. The second generation of ARC wheels combines the shapes and achieves the tapered rim end and the more voluminous rim body – and thus the optimal aerodynamics.
More width = less rolling resistance → 20 mm inner width!
Wider tyres have a positive influence on rolling resistance. Due to the larger volume they have a wider contact area and can be ridden with less air pressure. As a result, the tyre deforms less than narrow tyres and the rolling resistance decreases. Rolling resistance is about more than just the forces that need to be applied to roll on different surfaces or to overcome obstacles. Wider rim widths and wider tyres support the handling characteristics such as traction and comfort, which are also important in the DT Swiss concept. The second generation with 20 mm rim width sets the benchmark at 25mm at the front and 25 or 28mm tyres at the rear.
Reinvented Spokes — DT Swiss Spoke Technology
The new shapes of DT aerolite II and DT aero comp II spokes have a significantly positive influence on the rotational air friction. In combination with the optimal alignment of the T-Head spokes, this results in a higher overall speed. Due to the flat forging process of the spokes, the steel is more highly compressed, which leads to increased tensile strength. This makes them lighter at the same tensile strength.
Cooperation with Swiss Side
For more than five years DT Swiss has been working with Swiss Side, the leading aerodynamics experts in the road bike industry. With more than 20 years of technical experience in Formula 1 aerodynamics and more recently in world-class cycling innovations, Jean-Paul Ballard (aka JP) is the mastermind behind Swiss Side.
