Weight : 374 grams

Product Description

The Onyx center lock disc hub features DT Swiss proven technology, including the DT Swiss quad bearing system, high grade seals, optimized flange geometry and spoke hole chamfering, and utilizes a proprietary 2-pawl system with eighteen points of engagement. DT Swiss Onyx hubs are priced at the lower end of the DT Swiss lineup, yet offer better quality and performance than most OEM Hubs. Onyx hubs offer a great alternative as a hub upgrade for use with center lock* brakes.

The Onyx center lock* hub is maintenance friendly and easily serviceable through the DT Swiss worldwide dealer network, and is 100% produced and hand built in Switzerland.

Strengths:    There is no strength in this product.

Weaknesses:    What a crap. Lasted only 2000km on normal XC rides. Then started to sing : krskrggrrtrriskr... Opened it with my local bicycle expert. Some pieces of the freewheel decided to have coffe with the main bearings..!!!

Bottom Line:   
This hub replaced my old XT one as an upgrade.
God what have i done. I thought that DT rules but i guess this is their cheap crapy onyx serries which was previously removed from their product line.
