Swiss precision engineering, machining and assembly together with clever detail solutions have made of the 240 what it is today: A legend. Featuring the latest refinements the 240 hubs are extremely lightweight and extremely durable. The Ratchet System is the best solution for a freewheel system, since it can transfer high loads while being super light. Just what athletes want: Perfect transmission of their power and the reliability allowing them to focus on the ride.
The DT Swiss 240s is the top-end hub for extremely light wheelsets. The aluminium hubs are 100% swiss made for world class precision and quality. The spoke holes are crafted precisely to make sure the spoke heads can not move under load changes, reducing the risk of spoke fatigue failure. The advantages of the 240s are their extremely low weight, their high-class contact free double flange seal system against water and dirt, their bearings made of stainless steel and a special coating which guarantees for smooth rolling characteristics. The 240s is famous for its unique star ratchet freehub. The patented freehub system which utilizes precise star ratchets, guarantees for a very high load capacity and reliability. Thanks to the "no tool" concept maintenance is fairly easy.
