DT SWISS rear wheel PR 1400 DICUT Oxic Clincher
The PR 1400 Oxic wheel set takes the top spot among aluminum wheels at DT Swiss. Weighing only 1435 grams, it is extremely easy to accelerate and is ideal for racing and touring in the mountains.
The wheelset got its name from the special Oxic process that 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 compared to aluminium. As a result, the ceramic coating generates excellent braking properties and at the same time reduces wear on the rim and brake pads. This layer is applied in an electrolytic bath by applying a voltage between the rim and the container, similar to what is done with anodizing. The key difference is millions of plasma discharges, which cause the oxide that forms to melt and solidify again as a result of high temperatures and pressures. This makes the coating significantly more resistant than other ceramic coatings and also withstands high levels of force and deformation of the rim. In addition, the ceramic coating gives the rim its stylish matt black color without a visible braking surface. Since the Oxic layer does not contain any paints or varnishes, the coating is 100% UV resistant and there is no risk of the rim fading.
The hub impresses with its excellent seal and the distinctive sound of the toothed disc freewheel. With 36 locking points per wheel revolution, it offers a very direct response when accelerating hard. The DICUT flange geometry ensures a balanced impeller with high rigidity. The rear wheel is laced with 24 straight pull bladed spokes.
