    Giant hubs on xc1 and xct1?

    What type of hub/bearings do these giant hubs use? Trying to figure out what to do with some rear giant wheels I have with dented rims.

    When you pull them apart are that prawl based or ratchet? If ratchet then depending on the year type either DT Swiss 240 or 350. I believe the dimension are the same but the quality of the bearings are different.

    I have not taken them apart yet. The xc1 rim is off a 2017 trance 2. The xct1 rim is new this year also. I dented both rims on rocks....Trying to figure out if it is worth having the hub relaced....

    Giant was using the 240/350 based hubs when they started their "wheelsystems" but they have switch a number of them except for the very high end ones to DT Swiss 360 prawl based hubs. IMO not a great candidate for a relaced unless you are really press for $$$. On the current xct1 the website does not state that it is star ratchet based which means its not.
