I think DT Swiss

I know that at least one of the Magura hubs is a rebadged DT Swiss Onyx. Prevailing logic would say DT Swiss makes most, if not all Magura's hubs.

No.. I just haven't seen recent models of the Pros... but I had torn apart older model Pros and they were "plain" 240.. maybe the more current ones are 240S (such as yours), but I know for sure that the 1st year the 240s were out... the magura branded Pro hubs were still the old model...

You're right about the older ones....04/early05.....Before I said yes to the wheels, my search on the forums here tracked down someone who confirmed with DT that Magura Pro's (new ones) are 240S.......but when I take the bike down to the shop to rebuild the HCR, I'll get my bud to pull em apart and see for sure.......He deals with DT stuff all the time and he was shocked when he saw my wheelset and was even more shocked at what Magura lists them for.........He was choked that the wheels came in fully built a less then complete set of hubs.....And he figured they were DT240S as well.

Yeah.. Magura should offers a good deal on them, however around here DT is only marginally more expensive than Hope (same price as the Magura for complete wheelsets).. so I am looking at a 30-50 EUR diff between the Pro 2 and DT 240s paired to 4.2s... oh decisions...
