DT Swiss (Switzerland) - In 1994 DT Swiss introduced the first hub - the DT Hügi. The unique RATCHET SYSTEM made the hub a super reliable and a faithful companion in every situation. Over the last 25 years, the RATCHET SYSTEM has been evolved and improved constantly. Countless hubs, whether for road bikes, mountain bikes or for system wheels have been developed.
The entire experience of those years has now been packed into a new freehub system - the RATCHET EXP.
Refined endcaps simplify the tool-free disassembly.
Freehub Body Conversion:
Simplified due to easier disassembly.
The fusion of ratchet and threaded ring reduces the number of components.
A single cylindrical spring ensures a faster full engagement and therefore an increase in reliability.
The full engagement of the ratchets creates a large contact surface and therefore small point loads, resulting in a superior reliability.
15% stiffer due to increased bearing distance.
