    Difference between dt swiss road and mtn hubs?

    Hey all, just wondering if anyone knew the difference between the dt swiss road and mountain hubs?

    https://www.dtswiss.com/Components/Hubs-Road/240s-db-en

    https://www.dtswiss.com/Components/Hubs-MTB/240s-2

    142x12 centre lock both appear the same, fhb is irrelevant I'll have to swap either out (unless that's the difference and the road one isn't able to be swapped out for an XD)

    I can't get the mtn in 28h cl from madison so looking at road 28h and going to swap fhb for xd if it's the same hub.

    They are the same thing. A 11s road freehub can accommodate the new 11s Shimano road cassettes. You can just pull the freehub off and slide an XD on, with no tools. Otherwise it's the same hubshell.

    There is one small difference. The 11 speed freehub that comes on the road version uses smaller, lighter bearings than the 10 speed freehub that comes on the mountain version. Since you're converting to the XD driver there will be no difference.
