DT Swiss PR 1400 Dicut OXiC wheels

The DT Swiss PR 1400 Dicut OXiC combines a classic concept, innovative technologies, and a modern style. The award team was particularly impressed with the ceramic coating applied to the aluminium rims using an oxidation process. Provided that the brake pads are correctly positioned, you’ll get outstanding braking performance without that irritating squealing we all have heard from rim brakes. Visually, the black finish is in no way inferior to modern carbon wheels and even more reliable than some carbon competitors when riding in the mountains, especially on long descents. With a reasonable price of € 998, and superb stiffness and sturdiness, the DT Swiss PR 1400 Dicut OXiC are an extremely attractive option for those who still rely on rim brakes.

Weight: 1,450 g (Shimano) | Price: € 998
