DT Swiss ERC 1100 Dicut DB Carbon Clincher/Tubeless-Ready


$3,115, Dtswiss.com

The draw: Comfort-driven disc wheel

With a supple ride quality, good aerodynamics and smooth-rolling hubs, this disc brake-ready wheel set covers all the key bases. The 27mm wide rim and tubeless tire compatibility (DT Swiss recommends 25–28mm tires) make for one of the more comfortable rides of any wheel tested. They also reduced the size of the hub for improved aerodynamics and worked with partner Swiss Side to optimize the speed and handling of the 47mm deep rim. Of course the disc brakes stopped us quickly and safely. If a disc brake bike is in your future, check these out for a great all-around wheel that emphasizes comfort.
