      Hello Per, thank you for the question. The following Torque Cap kit is required for your front wheel: HWGXXX0009100S. Kind Regards, Andrew – DT Swiss USA

    I have a xr1501 spline 25mm boost front wheel. I want to buy torque caps. I dont Know if is 1st generation or 2nd generation. The hub is 240s centerlock. Can you help me?

    • DT Swiss
      November 08, 2018, 11:07 am

      Hi Paulo, first generation XR 1501 was not available with 25mm rims, your wheels are for sure 2nd generation. Best regards, Kai

    I’m trying to figure out whether I need HWGXXX0009102S or HWGXXX0009101S torque cap set for my DT Swiss EX 1501 Spline One 27.5″ front wheel 25mm currently 15/100mm axle bought in February 2017.

    Any reliable way to distinguish between the 2016 and 2017 model year? The information you provide here is really not sufficient and retailers seem to be confused as well. Some say HWGXXX0009102S is for Spline One 1501 2. Gen. from May 2017, others claim it’s 2016+ … really frustrating.

    • DT Swiss
      October 17, 2018, 3:49 pm

      Hello Frantisek, thank you for the question. If you remove one of the endcaps from your front hub, and measure the outer diameter of the internal hub axle, it will be either 17mm OD (2nd Gen.) or 18mm OD (1st Gen).

      If the axle measures 17mm OD, you will need torque cap kit: HWGXXX0009102S

      If the axle measures 18mm OD, you will need torque cap kit: HWGXXX0009101S

      Also, the 1st Gen. Spline One wheels have a silver & black hub shell with a DT Swiss “1” logo.

      Please also note that the above kits do not convert a 15x100mm hub to 15x110mm (or vice versa).

      Kind Regards, Andrew – DT Swiss USA

    I have a 240 boost centerlock hub that I want to convert to torque caps. Do I need a tool to remove the existing end caps? Or do they pull off with a vice (as in the video)?

    • DT Swiss
      October 15, 2018, 12:38 pm

      Hi Jon, 240s boost and standard hubs have identical endcaps, they can be removed as shown in the video.
      Best regards, Kai

    Can my bike shop order a hub With torque caps already installed? Specifically a 350, 6 bolt, 15 x 110. Part number please 🙂

    • DT Swiss
      October 04, 2018, 3:41 pm

      Hi Nicholas, thanks for the question. Sorry, we do not offer a hub with torque caps already installed. The 350 front hub torque cap kit is part number HWGXXX0009100S. Kind Regards, Andrew – DT Swiss USA

    I believe I need the standard endcaps (HWGXXX0004785S) for use with a 15x110mm non-torque cap fork (fox 36 boost). Everywhere I search for this end cap by it’s model number it is listed as 15x100mm. Is this because the same end cap is used for the boost and non-boost hubs? If I buy this standard end cap for my dt swiss 350 boost hug will it fill the 110mm gap in my fox boost fork?

    • DT Swiss
      October 01, 2018, 3:35 pm

      Hi Matthew, yes – that is the correct kit for your 350 hub. Our boost and non-boost hubs use the same length endcaps because the hub shell on boost hubs is wider. Kind Regards, Andrew – DT Swiss USA

    Does the stock E1900 wheelset on a Canyon Torque accept Torque Caps?

    • DT Swiss
      September 07, 2018, 10:21 am

      Hello Jim,

      yes, it’s possible to install torque caps on your E1900 front wheel. The kit part number is HWGXXX0009100S, and your preferred local bike shop can order this kit from our distributors. An installation video for the kit may be found here: https://www.dtswiss.com/en/support/how-to-videos/.
      Thank you for the question and have a great week.

      Kind Regards, Andrew – DT Swiss USA

    Do you make a torque cap conversion for my 2017 Trek Remedy 9.8? It has the Boost 110 spacing. I believe the hub is made by Trek but internals are DT Swiss.

    • DT Swiss
      August 23, 2018, 4:14 pm

      Hello Chris,

      thank you for the question. Unless the hub is made by DT Swiss (it will have a DT Swiss serial number on the hub shell – please see: https://youtu.be/1eNFxhTTTU4) we would not have a torque cap conversion kit for it. If you do not see a DT Swiss serial number on the hub shell, I would suggest contacting your local Trek dealer for any options they may have for your hub.

      Kind Regards,

      Andrew – DT Swiss USA

    Thanks Andrew! If I get a non-Torque Cap 15x110mm fork (like a Boosted Fox or MRP) will I need to get those same end caps to take up the space?

    • DT Swiss
      July 20, 2018, 10:06 am

      Hi Elliott, yes, that is correct – you will want the standard endcaps (HWGXXX0004785S) for a 15x110mm non-torque cap fork.

      Kind Regards,
      Andrew – DT Swiss USA

    Hi, I might have the same issue as Troy: I have a set of Spline M1700s with Torque Caps (they have been used with a 15x110mm 2017 Lyrik). I need this front wheel to work with a 15x100mm MRP Ribbon for a replacement fork for the summer while my Lyrik is being serviced. Are there end caps that can reduce the space left by the boosted Torque Cap removal and that make this hub compatible with a “regular” 15x100mm fork? Thanks for the possibly redundant question.

    • DT Swiss
      July 19, 2018, 4:00 pm

      Hi Elliott, no problem, that is a common question. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to convert a Boost 110mm hub to 100mm, this is because the location of the brake mount differs on 100mm hubs (the hub shell is actually narrower). You can replace your torque caps with standard endcaps (HWGXXX0004785S, for M1700), but the spacing will still be 110mm.

      Kind Regards,
      Andrew DT Swiss – USA.

    Hi guys
    I also have the same comment as Smokey,
    My lyrik has torque cap compatibility and is non boost – 15×100. Running e1900 spline (stock with YT Capra 2016) any joy with getting a cap replacement? Thank you

    • DT Swiss
      July 13, 2018, 11:41 am

      Hi Ben, thank you for the question. The torque cap kit for your E1900 front hub is part number: HWGXXX0009100S. This kit works for Boost or non-boost 350/370 hubs (and it does not change the existing axle spacing of the hub).

      Kind Regards,
      Andrew – DT Swiss USA.

    Hi there,
    Do you have torque caps to fit my spline E1900 15×100 (non boost)

    • DT Swiss
      June 21, 2018, 8:37 am

      Hi Smokey,

      thanks for your comment. There are some conversion kits for 1900 SPLINE wheels – > https://www.dtswiss.com/en/support/conversion-charts/torque-cap/

      But as far as we know there does not exist a non-boost fork for Torque Caps. It is not possible to convert a non-boost hub to boost dimension.

      Kind regards,

      DT Swiss

    I have bought by mistake a front e1700 spline two 29′ for 20×110 and 6 bolt disc fitting.
    Could I adapt it to 15×110? What will be the correct adapter?
    Thank you!

      May 08, 2018, 10:38 am

      Hi there,

      I’m sorry that you got the wrong wheel. Regarding conversion, I had to tell you that there is no adapter kit available for your front wheel. There will be just two possibilities: 1st change the front hub or try to replace the complete wheel.

      Best regards,

      DT Swiss

    I have purchased a new set of M1700 Spline two 30, 27.5 which are 110 and 148 hub width, is it possible to reduce the hub width to 100 and 138? I think I made a mistake in buying these.. please help with a conversation kit..

    • DT Swiss
      March 28, 2018, 3:30 pm

      Hi Troy,

      I’m sorry but it isn’t possible to convert a hub from boost (110 & 148) to non-boost (100 & 142) because the hub shell distance is different.

      Kind regards,

      DT Swiss

    Hello there.

    I have a set of 240 hubs into a Santa Cruz Bronson CC. This bike came with a RockShox Pike RCT3 but now I am switching to a Fox 36. Which set is suitable to exchange the endcaps from RockShox to Fox?

    Thanks in advice, Andres

    I am enquiring if DT Xmc 1200 27.5 wheel set can be adapted from 10/100 to 10/110 and 12/142 to12/148.
    And what adapters are required if possible.

      October 23, 2017, 11:50 am

      Hi Stefan

      No, it isn’t possible to covert non-boost (100 or 142mm) hubs to boost (110 or 148) hubs.

      Kind regards,

    I have a set of spline ex1501 one25 wheels from a 2017 merida one sixty 8000. The front wheel comes with torque caps fitted to the boost hub but please can you tell me the part number to convert these for use as 15×110 with fox or other forks.


    • DT Swiss
      October 17, 2017, 11:56 am

      no Problem, to convert your wheelset to regular 15/110 mm, you will need to order:
      HWGXXX00S6283S FW Adapter Kit 15/100mm Spline 1501 / Spline 1200
      The difference between 15/110 mm and 15/100 mm is just the hub body and the axle, so the 15/110 mm endcaps are exactly the same like on 15/100 mm hubs.

      Best regards,

    I own a set of M1900 Spline boost wheels which came with torque caps.If I would like to use these wheels in a fork other than rockshox, what part number do I need for the regular (non-torque) end caps?

    Recenrly purchased xm1501 2017 boost wheelset. The wheelset come with 240 centerlock hubs

    HWGXXX0009101S Was purchased in order to use torque caps.
    I checked the description for this item before
    “Fits 15mm Boost-spaced front hubs as well as 15x100mm Centerlock hubs
    Does not fit 240s 15x100mm 6-bolt”
    Fit 15mm boost front hubs!!!
    But it doesnt fit in xm1501 boost front hub

    The description is wrong and confusing

    After i was unable to fit it i found there is HWGXXX0009102S kit

    This kit have no description for 240 hubs but have description for 2016+ 1501 wheelset.

    Now i’m still not sure if HWGXXX0009102S will be fit my front wheel

    Pls. Advice

    Hello! What kit is compatible with the 240s 6 bolt 15×100 hubs? Ones that has threaded end caps.

    • DT Swiss
      August 07, 2017, 1:47 pm

      Hello Anna,
      I’m sorry but I have to tell you that there is no TorqueCap conversion kit available for the 240OS ( the ones with the threaded end caps ). The Hub you’re using is generally designed to be used with 20mm axles. As the TorqueCap forks have been designed to be used with 15mm hubs, we created just for those hubs the conversion kits.

      Kind regards,

      DT Swiss
