The hub that defines Swiss precision and performance.
These 240s super-light sealed bearing hubs have been winning local and international races for many years.
Forged aluminium hub shell and aluminium axle keeps weight to a minimum.
Features the unique Star Ratchet system.
This patented drive system within the Freehub offers low maintenance, ultimate strength and quick engagement.
The 18 engagement teeth on the ratchets (upgradable to 36 or 54 teeth) make for a more positive pick-up.
A special DT Swiss coating on the ratchets and axles greatly improves the lifespan of these parts.
The quad bearing system, with corrosion resistant stainless steel bearings and improved contact-free double flange sealing, also provide added durability.

Rims - DT Swiss RR 481 650b (27.5") 24h - A premium, tough, light gravel and cyclocross rim with a full 22 mm internal diameter for super high-volume 33c and over tyres.
Available in both 700c and 650B 'Road Plus' sizes for the new breed of multi surface adventure bikes
Whilst primarily designed for tubeless use, the RR 481 can also easily be used with standard clinchers and tubes.
Unlike the lightweight XC mountain bike rims that have been used as impromptu gravel rims in the past these are proper road rims and designed to handle higher pressures safely.
Strength Boost Welding Technology creates a perfectly welded join for a durable, reliable rim.
The PHR washers and convex Squorx nipples naturally align perfectly with your chosen spokes, increasing stiffness and durability with no weight penalty over traditional eyeleted rims.
Unique process for the black coating produces a tough and durable finish.

Spokes - Sapim CX Ray As light as a titanium spoke. The CX-Ray still receives the best results in fatigue testing of any spoke. Its unique strength and flexibility make the CX-Ray suitable for most bicycle disciplines. The middle section of the spoke is drawn then pressed in a special mould to form its specific profile. CX-Ray spokes are used by top bike racers and triathletes around the world. Even downhillers use them, recognizing their strength and flexibility. Special alloy treatment and sophisticated production make this all possible. The CX-Ray fits all standard hub holes.
