Description

With the DT Swiss Upgrade Kit 240S 54T SL you can adapt your DT Swiss 240S, 350 or 180 rear hub to an improved engagement. This means that the delay when the freehub reacts is reduced when you accelerate. This will get the wheel going more quickly. The upgrade kit can be mounted on the freehub without tools. Always use the recommended DT Swiss grease supplied with the kit.

Delivery includes

• DT Swiss assembly grease
• 2x Body Ratchet
• 2x Spring

Simple upgrade

- Paul 5 August 2021

Easy upgrade for faster engagement when pedalling and navigating technical terrain. Much louder buzz when freewheeling gets peoples attention.

54T makes all the difference.

Pricey, but worth of an upgrade, the sound is pure joy. Great engagement. Fast delivery to the UK, no extra import fees.

4 / 5

Expensive for what it is but works well.

- Martin 19 May 2021

It does what it’s supposed to do, great upgrade from the standard 18t ratchet, shame the cost is so high for two small aluminium rings, two springs and a tube of grease. Great service from Mantel and delivered safely to the UK.

Pros & Cons

Instant engagement
Price for what it is

A worthy upgrade

- Natalie 22 September 2020

This is one if those small upgrades that makes a big difference but is often over looked. It's one if those components that most riders never think about, just hear as they coast down a trail as it buzzes away. But it's an important part and depending on your riding style can make a big difference. Most noticable is how quickly the rachet engages delivering power to the rear wheel particularly on trails with sections that need the the odd pedal stoke here and there. The quicker engagement also makes pedal strikes more predictable when climbing technical rocky ascents and therefore easier to avoid them as there is less turn of the crank before power it delivered. My recent trip to the Peak District really highlighted this as valuable upgrade and I very pleased. I mostly maintain my own bike and all the components on it so I'm probably someone that notices the slightest difference with the smallest adjustment but I would say this particular upgrade is something most riders would benefit from even if they didn't notice it.

Pros & Cons

Makes a great sound
Precise and predictable pedal strokes
Quicker engagement
Haven't experienced any thing yet

4 / 5

Game changing performance, but too expensive and with it's own drawbacks.

- Souvik 17 May 2020

Makes technical climbing much easier but for 2 small pieces of aluminium, it's far too expensive. Not only that, but when putting down high torque, it tends to skip.

Pros & Cons

Amazing sound
Great technical climbing
Expensive for what it is
High maintenance
Tends to skip under heavy load
