With over a decade of use and abuse as a nearly indestructible road hub, the 240 by DT Swiss is arguably one of the finest hubs to date. With legendary quality and craftsmanship behind each hub, it’s easy to see why the 240 is a favorite among many mechanics and cyclists. By bringing that same quality to hand built mountain bike wheelsets, DT Swiss has potentially created the most durable hub option to date. By utilizing their precision star ratchet freehub body system, the DT 240s is a user serviceable hub with few moving parts, guaranteeing longevity and simplicity of service. No special tools are required to clean and regrease the 240s freehub body, making it the mechanic’s favorite in nearly every shop.
With a market wide acceptance that the DT 240s is one of the best options for your wheelset, it’s easy to see that DT Swiss products are a sound investment. With their bomb proof freehub body system coupled with the use of very common bearing sizes, the DT 240s can be completely overhauled by almost any bike shop.
