It's too bad there's no update to the rim brake OXIC wheels. The only 'new' rim brake offering is the P1800 which appears to use the old 18mm wide rim. I'm happy the OXICs haven't been completely phased out, but it would have been nice to see a refresh with wider rims on these otherwise brilliant wheels.
This. I wrote to a product manager at DT about this. The alternatives are HED Ardennes RA Black, which are amazing. If I could afford to, I'd buy another set, but they are very punchy for aluminium wheels.

The HED wheels do look promising with their wider internals, but in Europe they are quite expensive compared to the OXIC wheels (around double the price) and they're a bit porky. HED really needs to start selling these as a rim-only option and they'd be a hit.

Is there any different between the ARC1100 and the Swiss Side Hadrons Ultimate II? From what I'm reading, they're functionally identical except for the lack of the Ratchet EXP on the Hadrons, can anyone confirm?

Could anybody confirm which size bearings the 240 exp hubs take? I'm lead to belive both the 240 and 180 exp require 6802 bearings, so I'd need to source 5 of these to replace the front and rear?

Thanks
Did you ever get an answer for this? DT180's... 6802's?

All of the bearings have their sizes printed on the seals. Takes 30 seconds to pop off end caps or cassette to see them.

The new Canyon Grail has been spotted with DT Swiss GRC1600 wheels.
Maybe a new line of carbon 1600 wheels is coming up.

Probably an OEM deal like the ARC 1600 wheels on the lower spec Aeroads

How wide(WMA) is a 25mm tire (etc GP5000 STR...) around 75-80 Psi on ARC rims?

New GRC wheels. The GRC 50mm is 36 mm at it's widest point.

Anyone else have issues with water building up in these on wet rides and not draining out the drain hole due to surface tension?

I end up with water sloshing in them across both my arc 1100 wheel sets. Pretty lame.
