DT SWISS front wheel PR 1400 DICUT Oxic 32 Clincher
The PR 1400 Oxic 32 Laufradastz ranks top among aluminum wheels at DT Swiss. With its 32 mm high rims, it offers superior rigidity. Due to its large wheel inside width of 18 millimeters with tubeless-ready profile wide road-tubeless tires can be driven with low air pressures.
The wheelset got its name through the special Oxic process, which gives the rim surface its ceramic coating. This makes the rim surface very hard and resistant. DT Swiss speaks of triple hardness and abrasion resistance to aluminum. As a result, the ceramic coating generates excellent braking properties while reducing wear on the rim and brake pads. We applied this layer in an electrolyte bath by applying a voltage between the rim and the container, similar to that used in anodising. The decisive difference is millions of plasma discharges, which, due to high temperatures and pressures, cause the forming oxide to deliquesce and re-solidify. As a result, the coating is much more resistant than other ceramic coatings and also withstands high force application and deformation of the rim. In addition, the ceramic coating of the rim gives its stylish matt black color, with no visible brake flank. Since the Oxic coating does not contain paints and varnishes, the coating is 100% UV resistant and there is no risk of bleaching the rim.
The hub convinces with its excellent seal. The DICUT flange geometry ensures a balanced impeller with high rigidity. The front wheel is spanked with 20 Straightpull knife spokes.
