DT SWISS 180 SP CERAMIC CENTER LOCK BOOST
Lighter, stiffer, more precise and easier to maintain - the strengths of the 180 hub are further enhanced with the new RATCHET EXP technology. The ultra-reliable freehub system transfers the highest pedaling loads resulting in direct power transmission. Smooth-running SINC Ceramic bearings bring the decisive advantage with their extremely low rolling resistance.
Not only the reliability improved. The fusion of ratchet and threaded ring reduces the number of single parts of the system what offers an important advantage.
A single cylindrical spring ensures faster full engagement and thus increases reliability.
The full engagement of the ratchets creates a large contact surface and therefore low surface pressure that leads to superior reliability.
The integration of the bearing into the threaded ring allows the bearing distance to be maximized. The increased distance further supports the axis, which results in less deflection of the axle and thus protects the bearings and increases their lifetime.

BERD POLYLIGHT SPOKES
Berd spokes are made from an advanced polymer called ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) that has 12 times the strength-to-weight ratio of steel and floats on water. Berd spokes have an improved fatigue life compared to steel and are impervious to the elements.
Berd spokes use 14 gauge threads to connect to standard nipples the same way metal spokes do. Opposite the threads is a loop, which is pulled through the hub hole and secured with a rod. Berd spokes feature a 1.8mm diameter in the mid-span and are 2.5 grams per spoke.
Advantages of BERD PolyLight spokes:
- the weight of 2.5g allows to save almost 70/80 grams compared to the Alpina HyperLite spokes, that are the lightest steel spokes available on the market
- 12 times the strength-to-weight ratio of steel
- Berd spokes also damp vibrations much more effectively than steel spokes. This results in a more comfortable, smoother, ride. Berd spokes provide 200% better vibration damping than metal spokes.
The UCI, which regulates professional cycling, has specifically approved Berd spokes, so you can race Berd spokes from local crits to the Tour de France.

Our wheels are built by hand in house by highly specialized personnel.
The Bikeonline staff uses the best professional tools on the market into each step of the wheelbuilding process. The P&K Lie truing stand is one example, it allows us to check perfect truing through precise decimal comparators (0.1 millimeters accuracy).
We build most of the tools we use, to fit the level of our builds, which require a high accuracy.
The use of different tensiometers as Park Tool, Pillar and DT Swiss allows us to reach the correct tensions of every spokes.
Each wheel is pre-stressed by hand to ensure that nothing has been settling during the early stages of use and that the spoke tension remains constant for a long time even under very high loads
