The DT Swiss XM481 is one of our most popular build options and is now available, handbuilt onto DT's legendary 240s hubs. Around for years and largely unchanged, these swiss made hubs are equipped with their much licensed star ratchet engagement system and roll on high quality stainless steel bearings.
