Cycling Weekly Verdict

Overall the DT Swiss PR 1400 DiCut OXiC are excellent do-it-all wheels built to last. The braking is good and the stealth look is great, but unless the all-black aesthetic is hugely important to you, I would also suggest the excellent DT Swiss RR21 DiCut at £650.

The DT Swiss PR 1400 DiCut OXIC is a new performance wheelset from the Swiss brand featuring a textured ceramic coated brake track for improved stopping power in all conditions.

DT Swiss claims to have developed a new high-heat, high-pressure process of electrostatically applying the OXIC coating to its rims. This is a process claimed to result in far greater durability and a coating that will not flake off the rim.
