Don't let the lightweight and svelte design fool you. This hub is bomber and can hold up to abuse. Beautifully machined and well engineered product from DT. The clever design features asymmetrical hub flanges The disc side flange has a larger diameter for added stiffness and to have shorter spokes lengths to sturdy up the disc side. These design elements fortify the wheel on the disc side from heavy torque forces from powerful disc brakes.
The hub shell body is constructed from 7000 series heat treated aluminum that is anodized for further strength and protection from the elements. Inside the hub is a huge 15mm diameter aluminum axle that holds and supports the Kugellager Fiedler steel cartridge bearings. The freehub is made from alloy for weight reduction and internally, features DT Swiss's Star Ratcheting system. This proven design offers immediate response and engagement of the mechanism.
The black end caps remove without tools, as does the freehub body. This make taking apart the hub for service a breeze. All the internal parts are exposed for easy cleaning and reassembly.
Cosmetically it features a black anodized body and end caps that hold up to wear and abuse and clean up well after many miles of use. Updated DT Swiss red cross logo adorns the center of the hub body. Skewer not included.
