Strengths:    Light weight, center lock, very low rolling resistance, no problems

Weaknesses:    The clicking noise while coasting is not as refined as shimano. They're a bit expensive.

Bottom Line:   

I've never had a hub with so little resistance. They're light weight, and have performed perfectly. I like the center lock disk brakes.

I'd definitely buy again.

Strengths:    unbreakable , rolls like hell , very light

Weaknesses:    price,

Bottom Line:   
this, product is swiss made, so there is the answer, they have best cheese and best hubs, i have bought a center lock, version, and adapters to 6 bolt, rotor, so its easier for me to find rotors, cos in Serbia everything for mtb is hard to find, they roll very smooth very easy to maintenance and combined with mavic xm819+ dt revolution spokes you get ultimate tubeless race wheel-set, they use sealed bearings, so when they start to make some sound, just replace them, but try to find a koyo bearings they are made in japan, and they are very high quality, I have made my own tools for replacing this bearings, so its even cheaper for me to replace bearings, but so far they are smooth as they were first day

Strengths:    Lace 'em up, slap 'em on the bike, and forget about 'em! Cheaper and lighter than the Kings, also with less drag.

Weaknesses:    The only weakness is that you cannot get 'em in cool anodized colors like Kings.

Bottom Line:   
These hubs (including the front) have been flawless from the day I swapped out the stock Mavic Croosmax wheels for them. The star ratchet system engages quickly and efficiently with minimum drag. The bearings, size 6802, in the freehub body of the newer "S" series of DT's 240s seem to wear a bit quicker than the older design which used larger 6902 bearings (which makes sense because they use a smaller ball to shave weight from the hub).

Overall, I have put many tough miles on these hubs for the past three-plus years and they have NEVER let me down! I appreciate the simplicity of the design and the efficiency of its application. I have since gotten multiple DT Swiss hubsets for road and cyclocross as well.
