Strength:

Have had no issues with mine. It came on a 2017 Santa Cruz 5010 with the 36 tooth star ratchets instead of the 18t so engagement is very good. Easy to tear down to clean and lube, fairly quiet. I still prefer the Hope Pro II on my other bike but this is really close.

Weakness:

Weakness is the $105 cost to upgrade to 36t from 18t if that is what comes with your hub.

Strength:

solid freehub engagement

Weakness:

aluminum freehub body

just got this hub. a warranty replacement for a failed Formula freehub.

I used the hub one ride. then I had to do some work on the wheels, (swapping cassettes) .. and the cassette was really hard to get off. The cog splines had dug deep into the freehub body splines! Not happy about this at all. Replacement freehub body in steel is another hundred bucks.

Strength:

Convertible to all different types of rear axles, easily serviced without tools, nice reliable star ratchet design, pretty light, very quiet.

Weakness:

Slow engagement - and $100 extra to get ratchet upgrade for better engagement.

Bought this hub to replace a Bitex hub that imploded after 2 seasons. My criteria in choosing a new hub were reliability, performance, convertibility, ease of maintenance, weight, noise, and cost. The DT hub meets all of those. Mostly. The star ratchet should be reliable. This was the most important factor to me - the rear hub is one of the more complex parts of a bike and very difficult and costly to change if it fails. I wanted to get away from the pawl/spring type freehubs like Bitex, Hope and many others use, after being burned by the Bitex hub. The hub is easily and cheaply converted by changing end caps. It can be serviced without tools. It is fairly light weight. It's very quiet. It's available for around $200. I can probably live with the slow engagement based on the other positives. I would have given this hub 5 stars if DT just included the 36t ratchet with the hub or didn't charge $100 for the upgrade. Next time I'll probably try Hope instead - 40t engagement (built in-no $100 upgrade required) and similiarly priced.
