The sophisticated ARC 1400 DICUT wheels represent the latest DNA of the 1400 level of DT Swiss and the aero partner SWISS SIDE. Available in disc brake version, the AERO+ profile rims set a new standard in aerodynamic performance and keep aero drag as low as possible under different crosswind angles.
Benchmark aero road wheel: DT Swiss ARC Disc 1400 Dicut Carbon
In moderate side wind conditions, riders benefit from propulsion through a sailing effect. Reduced wind sensitivity allows riders to maintain a stable aerodynamic position and full control of their bike. High-end DT Swiss aero spokes and the light 240 DICUT hub with its reliable Ratchet EXP system for more direct engagement complete this wheelsets.

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. On the rear wheel, the RATCHET EXP freewheel hub system, the latest state of the art, works for the best possible power transmission.
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.
