Easy Upgrade
Especially if you are familiar w the easy to service applicable DT hub, this is a no brainer. Most people are fine w the 24 points of engagement, but if you have them on a 36 they do notice, hence want it. Make sure you carry your 24 ratchets in your kit in case of a strip on the trail, so you can service it on the spot. Put them on your key ring!

Mandatory Hub Upgrade
I purchased the star ratchet upgrade for my 350 rear hub and it is a huge improvement. Engagement is noticeably faster and the hub is still as quiet as ever.

Easy upgrade, quiet, quick engagement.
Search online for video instructions. All that's needed are an old quick release skewer and a 3mm Allen wrench per video recommendations.

Instant engagement
Definitely noticed an improvement on engagement. Instant ratcheting now with no frustrating delay. I should have upgraded to this years ago. The grease is okay but I am back to Liquid Grease by Dumonde Tech which my LBS recommends.

It rocks
Decreases substantially freewheel neutral zones. It improves speed in slower zones and ability to balance on the bike in very technical areas.
Ten grams lighter and very pleasant noise.

PROS: Efficiency technicality

CONS: none

Buzzzzzzzzzz
I Love my DT Hubs. Now that I've upgraded to the 36 star ratchet system from the 18, I notice almost no dead spots when I pedal. It was quick and easy to install. Also they sound much cooler, not that anyone but myself will notice. I can't say anything about durability. I only have about 6 rides on this upgrade.

Will this fit a DT 350?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Please refer to this DT Swiss website. dt swiss and look up Technology/Classic-Hub-technology and
access their information. As far as I can tell, it is compatible. The 350 series appears to use the same ratchet system if you look at the right side of the page.

There're also a couple of videos accessible online that show the disassembly method for completing the switch.
Does this fit the 2014 Dicut RR21 rear wheel?
coolRay on Feb 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It should. DT Swiss's only one ratchet system, therefore if your hub leverages the star ratchet you should be OK. I also believe these are based off of the 240s, but to be 100% sure contact DT Swiss and use their contact form on their site.
