DT's venerable 240s hubs have achieved a near-legendary status with a decade of production and heavy use by many of the industry's top wheel manufacturers, including Enve, Reynolds, and Bontrager. The 240s has defined itself as a mechanics' favorite; an extremely durable and dependable hub, with a lightweight, easily serviceable design.
DT's 240s rear hubs feature their precision star ratchet engagement system, which is both strong, quiet (when properly lubricated), and user-serviceable. This system differs dramatically from the common spring-and-pawl designs, which have many small parts that are susceptible to premature wear or breakage.
We recommend that wheels with DT Swiss hubs be built by an experienced wheelbuilder. We are happy to provide this service, and can provide helpful suggestions in rim and spoke selections. Please contact us directly or submit a form for a custom wheelbuild
