Straight-pulling its own weight and more.
Opting to custom-build your next road wheelset on a pair of DT Swiss 240s hubs requires no justification. The hubs’ timeless design, durability, and reliability make their own arguments, so match your 240s straight-pull rear with this DT Swiss 240s Straight-Pull Front Hub to make a perfect pair.
The 240s front hubs use a forged aluminum shell that houses stainless steel bearings (balls and races), which are known for their famous durability. And thanks to the DT Swiss labyrinth seal system — non-contacting seals that utilize an asymmetrical path to resist moisture, muck, and grit — your bearings will keep their magical smoothness over the long haul. The minimal shell design remains tremendously strong while maintaining incredibly low weight, thanks to the lack of a flange that would normally be in place to anchor J-bend spokes.
The DT Swiss 240s Straight-Pull Front Hub comes in one color only. It has a standard quick-release front axle and accommodates 20-hole rims.
