Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous five stars!
I am rideing this hub since the end of 2006 - it works perfect - used with an Mavic 325 rim and DT spokes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous The best that money can buy!
DT Swiss hubs really are the best that money can buy. No other hub on the market can match the precision that DT have.
The freehub design is incredibly simple and makes for a 100% engagement every time. This simplicity also means DT hubs are DURABLE!
240s are pretty light (use a Center Lock one with an adaptor and it's even lighter) and because of the precision they use build a wheel which will keep tension for a long, long time (no oversize spoke holes like Hope use for ease of/machine building).
You will not find a hub that is more of a joy to own!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous amazing :)
using this hub for racing the nps4x and generally riding dh, street and so on and cant fault it, makes very little engagement noise, rolls extremely well, strong, light, easy to maintain.... the only thing that is slightly annoying is the engagement isn’t the best in the world about the same as my pro 2 which I would of thought would of been a bit better as its not the cheapest of hubs, but i would recommend on buying these to any body for any type of riding, final word/thought is that its an A* product by DT Swiss and i wouldn’t hesitate to order another one.

I should specially mention rolling quality, also very light and quiet. After one year of use now nothing have changed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous smooth and light weight
With dt revolution spokes and Mavic x717 rims this hub built up into A 821gm wheel.The bearings are super smooth and the freewheel has an almost inaudable purr.Not as bling as Chris King but lighter and A fraction of the price.Highly recomended especially to all the weight weenies.
