DT Swiss 240s Road Rear Hub

DT Swiss 240s Road Rear Hub

This high-precision Swiss-engineered rear hub uses a 15mm axle to maximize rear wheel stiffness. The 240s is the signature DT Swiss hub and is the gold standard for lightweight high-quality hubs.

Multi-speed cassettes can create asymmetrical, highly dished wheels. With many hubs, this asymmetry doesn't allow sufficient spoke tension on the non-drive-side of the wheel, leading to poor durability and lateral stiffness. DT Swiss focused on this issue and developed the 240s road hub with optimized flange geometry to improve wheel symmetry.

DT Swiss' patented Star Ratcheting System offers low maintenance, ultimate strength and quick engagement. The 18-tooth ratchet allows for a more positive pick-up when you hammer down on the cranks. DT Swiss' proprietary coating on the ratchet and axles improves the lifespan of the hub. For riders requiring even faster engagement, Wheelbuilder can install the DT Swiss 36 Step Star Ratchet Upgrade Kit into your 240s hub.

The 240s is a sealed cartridge bearing hub, performing well in wet conditions. The contact free flange seals enclose the highest quality corrosion resistant stainless steel bearings, which improves rolling efficiency and durability. The 240s rear hub is a Wheelbuilder favorite for building dependable training and racing wheels.

Campagnolo hubs include a 12/13 lockring

The DT Swiss 240s is a great hub to consider for your Zipp rebuild. It is easy to service, extremely durable, and offers pro tour level performance. The Chris King R45 is also an excellent hub to consider. It is not quite as easy to service as the DT Swiss 240s, however it is better suited for larger or stronger riders, and it comes in a variety of beautiful colors.
