The DT Swiss 240 series hubs have gained a well-deserved legendary status in the cycling world. While these hubs have been continuously refined and adopted to new frame and fork standards throughout the years, their core qualities have remained the same. These hubs have earned their stellar reputation with light weights, extreme durability, and ease of serviceability.
Now available for the RockShox RS-1, this hub is a perfect complement to the trick upside-down fork. While this version is specifically designed for the RS-1 fork, the pedigree remains consistent with the rest of the 240 line. The expertly machined aluminum hubshell rotates on high quality stainless steel sealed bearings. Careful machining of the straight-pull flanges results in excess weight being trimmed without sacrificing any durability. Being a straight-pull hub, this version of the 240 offers some distinct advantages over traditional flanged hubs. With the spoke exiting the flange in a direct line to the rim, the common spoke failure point found at the bend is eliminated. The design also eliminates the lateral stresses on flanges inherent in j-bend style hubs. While there is no flexibility in the lacing pattern, it has been optimized by DT to provide a stiffer more responsive wheel with ideal strength to weight characteristics. This hub weighs in at a very respectable 176 grams, is available in a 28 hole count, and features the ISO 6-bolt standard for mounting disc brake rotors.
Solid construction and impeccable design provide riders a reliable hub that will withstand abuse for many years. Racers, enthusiasts, and professional wheel builders choose DT 240 hubs when dependability and longevity without weight penalties are paramount.
We recommend bladed spokes be selected when building straight pull wheels as they are the easiest way to combat spoke windup. Check out the DT Spoke Calculator or contact us if you have questions on which parts to select for your next wheel build.
