Description: A disc hub for perfectionists. The 240s disc brake is the right choice for all light frame freaks who like things extremely light and refined. A clever design and super-light, high quality components make it an extremely stabile disc brake hub. 100% Swiss made, patent pending.

The Review
These hubs are very much under-rated. They don't have the bling of CK nor the engagement of I9s, but the Swiss has achieved a very nice balance with the 240s.

This is the perfect set of hubs for the rider who wants something that is fit and forget.

Strengths
A fine balance of performance and weight, coupled with an unmatched durability.

Star ratchet pawls never skips.

I had yet to need to service or adjust the bearings, this is a testament of the quality of the seals.

Weaknesses
Some might find it boring but you don't buy it for the looks nor the hype.

They are not compatible with 15mm and larger thru-axle conversion.
