As disc brakes become ever more common on bikes of every style, the demand for reliable, lightweight disc hubs has skyrocketed. With so many options on the market, choosing the right hub for your application can be daunting.
DT Swiss has been producing their 240s hub line for over a decade and strives to accommodate the ever changing standards of the bike industry. The solid construction and impeccable design provide riders a reliable hub that will withstand abuse for many years with proper maintenance. With a pedigree so exalted it is easy to see why DT Swiss has become so well known with cyclists of every sect. Racers and professional wheel builders choose DT hubs when dependability and longevity are paramount.
Straight Pull hubs offer 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 hub flanges have been machined to remove excess material, allowing for lighter overall weight without sacrificing durability. 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.
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.
