With the extension of the ARC 1400 DICUT wheels to the 1400 hub level, the DT Swiss aero segment is significantly strengthened. Developed in partnership with the aerodynamic specialists from SWISS SIDE, the ARC 1400 DICUT are made to get up to speed and to go flat out fast. The aero wheels support the complete system of rider and bike with minimal drag and superior aero stability in various conditions.
Benchmark aero road wheel: DT Swiss ARC Disc 1400 Dicut Carbon
The rim of the aerodynamically optimized aero wheel is identical to that of the ARC 1100 DICUT series. The difference lies in the details built with a 240 hub incorporating stainless steel bearings as well as a variation in the spoke specification. Finally, the wheel gives you the reliability you need in the race against the clock.

DT Swiss Technologies
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.
Remastered Hub 240 Dicut — DT Swiss hub technology
DT Swiss is known for high quality hubs. The redesigned 240 Dicut hub also lives up to this reputation. While the greater distance between the hub bearings increases the hub stiffness and makes it more resistant, the easy, tool-less maintenance also maximizes the overall life of the hub. Compared to the Dicut Aero hubs of earlier days, the silhouette of the hub body has been reduced in size and aerodynamically improved. This is also due to the two-in-one spoke hole technology, which saves holes in the flange.
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.
