PDXTI DT Swiss 240 CL18 End Caps, combined with the extremely light weight PDXTI 12-15-TA Adapter, allow the use of several DT Swiss 240s hub models with a 12mm x 100mm thru axle Road/CX/Gravel fork.

A specific known compatibility issue is that 15TA compatible DT Swiss front hubs are available in standard 100mm width in 15mm or QR configurations only, with no existing 12mm end cap available.

The end caps for DT Swiss 15x100mm Thru Axles have an OD of 21mm at the fork interface end, which most 12mm forks will not accommodate.

Our DT Swiss 240 CL18 12mm-Compatible 15mm end caps solve this problem and bring the durability and performance of several 240 MTB hub models to road, CX, and gravel use.

Available as a complete kit including PDXTI 12-15-TA Adapter, or as end caps only for use with an existing axle adapter.

 
 

DT SWISS 240 CL18 END CAPS
- DT Swiss Part Number: HWGXXX00S4468S.
- Push-in end caps convert 2011+ DT 240 Center Lock Disc hubs with 18mm axle for 100x12TA forks.
- Includes end caps and 12-15-TA Adapter

——- 240s straightpull MTB db Center Lock
——- 240s straightpull MTB db IS except 110x15TA PS
——- 240s Classic MTB db Center Lock Fifteen
——- 240s straightpull Road db Center Lock
——- 240s Classic Road db CenterLock front hub

DIRECTIONS:
1) Swap end caps: pull the existing end caps off of the hub axle.
2) Push PDXTI DT Swiss 240 CL18 end caps caps on to axle.
3) Slide 12-15-TA Adapter into the 15mm hub.
4) Install wheel into fork as normal.
5) Install 12mm thru axle as normal.

NOTES: 
- If the existing end caps do not “pop” off the axle easily the end cap O-ring may be dry and sticking. Put a few drops of TriFlow or similar lubricant around the edge of the end caps while turning and allow time for lubricant to reach O-ring. It may also be helpful to insert a 15TA axle or adapter to leverage the cap.

- A thin layer of grease on the O-rings inside the new PDXTI end caps is recommended.

- A thin layer of high quality grease on the outside of the adapter and the outside of the 12mm thru axle are recommended for ease of assembly and to provide an extra moisture barrier.

- Compatible with all 12mm x 100mm forks.

- Compatible with 2011+ 240 Center Lock Disc and 240 Boost Center Lock or 6-bolt disc hubs with 18mm OD hub axle;

- Please note that the critical hub dimension for 12TA fork interfaces is the OD of the end cap, which must be 19mm or smaller. Stock DT Swiss 240 MTB 15TA end caps are 20-21mm and will not fit most 12TA forks.

- Thru axles provide compression of the fork ends where the hub end caps interface with the fork ends. Because all hubs and forks are manufactured by third parties to differing tolerances, to ensure an interference-free fit with all possible combinations the length of the PDXTI 12-15-TA Adapter is just under 100mm.
