The RWS X-12 allows tool free wheel swaps on frames using the X-12 standard. Quicker than any other wheelmounting standard!
Modern road- and mountainbikes allow for an ever increasing level of rding: Faster and more aggressive. The RWS system keeps up with this development, holding the wheels securely no matter the situation.

Buy DT Swiss Conversion Kit QR to 142mm X-12 RWS Rear from Chain Reaction Cycles, the worlds largest online bicycle store.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Bought this as I was looking to convert my Hugi FR 10/135(former version of DT440)and as DT wasn't offering any dedicated kit for this hub (contacted their service center in Germany).
I took my chance and ordered the kit for 240/350 and I got lucky,it also fits Hugi FR without modification (most of DT hubs share the same bearing size, axle lenght, etc..)
The only differnce I found compared with my hugi FR, is that the end cap on disc side has no rubber seal but instead uses 2 high parallel flanges which probably work as a labyrinth seal.
Rank it *** as it is a real rubbery for a couple a aluminium pieces (compared with hope kit) but still cheaper than building a new wheel. Otherwise nothing to claim at, DT quality is good.
I'll update the review later in regard to sealing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Also compatible with HUGI FR Hub
I bought this kit as i was looking to convert my rear HUGI FR 135/10mm (former version of DT 440) to the newer frame std 142/12.
DT doesn't offer 142/12mm conversion kits for HUGI FR or DT440.(answer from their customer service )
So decided to take my chance and order the conversion kit for 240/350 and the answer is YES this kit fits HUGI FR hub without any modification.
Compared to the original axle, the disc side end cap doesn't come with the rubber seal but instead the end cap has 2 parallel flanges without seals. These probably act as a labyrinth to prevent dirt
to get in.
I'll update my review later and relate any sealing issues,that's why *** only. Price wise it isn't cheap but still cheaper than buying a new wheel.
Didn't try yet but will update the review
