In line with the motto never change a running system, Dt Swiss has only slightly revised its high-end hubs of the 180 series for the model year 2015 and has added variants for all common axle and freewheel stands. The minimalistic weight remains at an extremely high stiffness, which is achieved by means of a middle part of unidirectional carbon on the hub body. The stiffness on the hub body serves to distribute the load more evenly on the spokes. Drive and brake forces are transmitted even better from both spoke flanges to all spokes. One-sided load tips are pre-bent, which spares hub, spokes and rim.
DT Swiss hubs represent the simplest design and maximum reliability. The latter is achieved with the 180 hubs with smooth, long-life hybrid ceramic bearings and the indestructible toothed disc free-wheel mechanism. With 18 detent points per revolution, this provides not only for a very direct force connection, but also for the typical, robust sound of the DT Swiss hubs. Due to the use of complex seals and bearing sizes which are adapted to the loads, the hubs come out without adjusting the bearing clearance. Thus the driver does not have to worry about the function of the hubs for years! Should a service be necessary after ten thousand kilometers, the hubs can be dismantled and serviced within a few minutes without special tools thanks to the DT Swiss plug system.
The center lock version for 12x142 millimeters of the rear wheel hub can be converted with optional adapters without tools for the use of 12x 135 millimeters, DT Swiss 10x135 millimeters of Thru Bolt or 10x130 millimeters of quick connectors. A spacer ring for the use of Sram | Shimano 9- and 10-speed cartridges are included.
