DT Swiss 36 Star Ratchet Upgrade Kit

MSRP : $120.00
Price : USD 119.00
One of's favorite little upgrades (for DT Swiss hubs only!). This upgrade kit allows for twice as fast engagement compared to the standard 18t Step Star ratchets with a weight savings of 9 grams due to additional machining from the original 18 step ratchets that weigh 23.5 grams. An excellent upgrade for those looking for more response in competition or help with timing during technical climbing. It is also worth noting that this upgrade is beneficial for those who exert enough power (or are heavy enough) to score the soft aluminum DT Swiss freehub bodies. The reduced angle of engagement prevents the cassette from generating as much velocity during initial acceleration. Note that if run with little grease, this kit will create a louder freewheel sound every time you leave the ground.
