DT Swiss has unveiled the lightest version of its Mon Chasseral series of wheels called the PRC 1100 Dicut 24 Mon Chasseral, which tip the scales at an impressive 1266g. Moreover, the new wheelset is disc brake specific, marking a new benchmark for hoops in this segment.
“You ride your bike. Not to prove anything to anyone. But for yourself. You feel ambitious – yet relaxed. Confident to reach your goal. It’s all out there: You. Your bike. And the ultimate wheelset to propel you up the mountain top of your personal “Mon Chasseral”: 1266 g of finest Swiss engineering – featuring the latest Ratchet EXP hub and built up with a special carbon layering technology, hand-made in Europe – this wheelset provides you with a unique appearance and riding experience,” says DT Swiss.
In order achieve this gravity-defying weight, DT Swiss relied on its 24mm, asymmetric carbon rim that debuted last summer, which features a 18mm internal width, a hooked tubeless-ready bead and the elimination of any surface work other than a UV and weather resistant resin and water transfer graphics.
Additionally, the new PRC 1100 Dicut 24 Mon Chasseral wheeslet features DT Swiss’ 180 Dicut Disc hubset, along with their latest EXP freehub internals and a 36T ratchet design.
The Swiss brand says it was able to further reduce rotational mass by shaving away access material from the centerlock interface.
Other features that highlight the PRC 1100 Dicut 24 Mon Chasseral wheelset are ceramic bearings and DT Swiss’ new Aerolite and 12 DT Aero Comp straight-pull spokes that are laced in a 2X pattern.
DT Swiss says the PRC 1100 Dicut 24 Mon Chasseral wheelset is optimized for 25mm to 30mm tires, which can be configured as either a clincher or tubeless set-up, while the max rider weight limit has been set at 243lb/110kg.
The PRC 1100 Dicut 24 Mon Chasseral wheelset retails for $3734 / 2948€, which comes complete with tubeless valves and tape, both a Shimano HG freehub and SRAM XDR driver (Campagnolo sold separately), QR endcaps and DT Swiss wheelbags.
Availability is expected in mid-summer 2020.
