DT SWISS front wheel ARC 1100 DICUT Carbon Clincher 80 mm
The Swiss from DT Swiss are known for their first-class hubs and wheel components. In order to reach the very highest level in the area of aerodynamics, the fellow Swiss from Side was brought on board when developing the ARC 1100 wheelset. With more than 50 years of experience in Formula 1, Swiss Side has also been producing extremely aerodynamically sophisticated wheels with the latest production techniques for several years. In addition to these qualities, it was the geographical proximity to DT-Swiss that made it possible to develop a top-class wheelset together.
In terms of air resistance, the ARC 1100 impressed with its 80 millimeter high rim in the wind tunnel and delivered extremely low air resistance at eye level with the most aerodynamic wheel on the market with the same profile height. However, aerodynamics were not the only focus in the development. With the main focus on long tours or long races, the wheels should be easy to control and comfortable under all conditions. AERO + calls DT Swiss this concept, with which the perfect symbiosis of air resistance, handling and efficiency should be found.
The highest air resistance in the driver and bike system is provided by the driver himself at 75%. It is therefore crucial that the driver has confidence and control over his bike in all conditions in order to be able to ride in an aerodynamically efficient position. From this point of view, the ARC 1100 was able to achieve the best results in the wind tunnel. In all wind conditions only very small forces act on the steering and therefore the driver hardly has to take countermeasures in strong cross winds.
The Swiss summarize the points comfort grip and rolling resistance under efficiency. All 3 points could be brought to a very high level by one parameter of the rims: The large rim inside width of 19 millimeters. These 25- and 28-millimeter wide tires not only sit aerodynamically on the rim, they also have less rolling resistance due to the large rim width than on a narrower rim. A better shape of the tire and more stability with lower air back also increase comfort and cornering grip. The rims are tubeless ready for use with tubeless tires and are supplied with accessories for retrofitting.
The hubs are based on the proven DT Swiss 240S hubs. These impress with their excellent seal and the distinctive sound of the toothed pulley freewheel. Their DICUT flange geometry ensures balanced impellers with high rigidity. The ARC 1100 wheel with 16 straight pull knife spokes is spoked.
