A few weeks ago, we gave you a first look at the DT Swiss PRC 1400 Spline 35 wheelset, and suffice to say we were intrigued to see how the Swiss firm’s £1,674.99 carbon clincher hoops stood up to some end-of-summer treatment. The result? These are seriously impressive mid-depth carbon wheels ready to light up any ride.
If you’re not in the mood for a full re-read of that story, let us briefly regale you with the most important details. First up, the PRC line-up sits in the middle of the DT Swiss’ aero-endurance continuum, either side of the ARC and ERC ranges respectively, which means it takes cues from each.
Remember the lightweight vs aero wheels discussion we had? Well, the PRC 1400s in this 35mm depth (there’s also a 65mm option) are a perfect example of the type of mid-section rim likely to provide reliable all-round performance for the majority of riders, on the vast majority of their rides. At 35mm, that rim is deep enough to provide an aero advantage, while remaining relatively light at 1,476g for the wheelset.
