Strengths:    Solid and reliable, super smooth. Have the 240 hubs build up with DT rims and spokes and couldnt be happier. Handling is much more responsive than previous wheels, great handling, smooth rolling, sfiff and super light weight.. Everything you could ever want in a wheel.

Weaknesses:    unable to find any

Bottom Line:   
Will not buy any other wheels again other than DT SWISS.. They offer and excede every expectation you could ever have about a wheel from light weight and exceptional strength to reliabilty and handling .. You cant ask or even receive anything better at any price...

Strengths:    light weight, center lock compatible

Weaknesses:    "ticks" when braking hard

Bottom Line:   

It's kind of difficult to really judge a hub. For the most part, the specs speak for themselves. This is a light weight center lock hub, and it does what a hub is supposed to do.

It seems to be the lowest resistance hub I've ever had, and a spun wheel will continue spinning for an amazingly long time.

I also like the center lock brakes, as they go on fast and easy, and seem more secure and stable.

I do notice that I get a bit of a ticking sound when I brake hard, kind of like you get out of a rear hub when coasting. It's not unpleasant.

As I said, this does what a hub is supposed to do. I'd get it again based on the light weight and center lock compatibility.
