ENTER THE NEW ERA WITH DT

All-new DT SWISS 180 hubs arrived at Light Bicycle.

A QUICK LOOK

LESS WEIGHT / MORE PRECISION / INCREASED STIFFNESS

DT Swiss has been known for its lightweight, simple and reliable hubs.
How could they improve on such a timeless design?

The innovative 180 hubs are designed with the Ratchet EXP technology and the freehub system is claimed to be even lighter and more reliable. How does it vary from the previous generations of DT Swiss hubs?

what is

ratchet-exp-freehub-system

In the previous ratchet system (240/350 hubs), two springs are used to push two ratchets against each other, while the ratchet EXP 180 hub requires only one spring due to the fusion of the inboard ratchet and hub shell. The reduced number of components contributes to weight loss and increased stiffness by 15% as claimed by DT Swiss. The design change allowed the drive side hub shell bearing to be moved outboard thus creating a stiffer and wider stance.

The single-spring ratchet system is more reliable than the previous 2-spring system. In DT 180 hubs, the inner ratchet is fixed to the threaded ring which keeps it aligned with the outer ratchet at the proper angle - this helps achieve a faster full engagement of the front face.

TOOLS FREE

No tools are required to perform maintenance on the hubs, and very little maintenance is required. The shape of endcaps is redesigned for ease of maintenance and freehub body “rotor” swaps.

You can change Ratchet EXP freehub body in seconds to make it compatible with Sram XD, Sram XDR (Road), Shimano HG HyperGlide, Shimano MS MicroSpline, or Campagnolo freehubs.
