Hello

Question for you all. Has anyone used regular (non ebike) DT 350 hubs on their ebikes?

I have ex1700 enduro wheelset. Was hoping to use it on my new heckler. I know DT has hx series but really like my wheels lol.. Light weight and sturdy.

Opinions?

Thank you

I ran DT Swiss 350 hubs on DT Swiss EX511 rims on a Kenevo and they seemed to work fine. I now run Hope Pro 4 hubs on EX511 rims on a Kenevo SL only because that is what I have. I personally prefer XD as aluminum HG freehubs splines get torn up so easily.

We've been using DT Swiss 350 hubs for ages including 2 years on Levos, 2 on Levo SLs, and now on a Fuel EXe. I1- and 12 speed Shimano and SRAM drivers with 54 tooth star ratchets (keep them lubed). They've all been trouble free. We switch wheels between bikes and the rotors (center-lock) always align perfectly. We''ve cut several hubs out of old wheels to re-lace on new rims. Don't see a need to change.

Thank you. I am hearing that 350s are pretty strong ))

The hybrid series have steel HG freehub bodies, not sure if cross compatible with the non-hybrid hubs but a useful upgrade if they are (if you are running a HG cassette, obvs)

DT 350 are great for all bikes. I had to replaced my bearings with NSK and significantly increased both the smoothness and side to side stability.
