Does anybody what hubs are on these wheels? ... 2-d-1-471g

I'm pretty sure the rims are from Carbonfan: ... h-rear-24h

But the cost of getting a wheelset direct from Carbonfan with DT SWiss 350 disc hubs is about the same as getting it from Scribe so wondering whether it's better to get a DT Swiss hub vs local support and warranty in he UK.

Edit: as corrected by Bm0p700f, 2:1 on a rear disc weel isn't viable, not enought space for a good balance.

What you get with Scrib wheelset isn't only the local support, is the 2:1 pattern front and rear, something not common but very clever.
The geometry between disc hubs in general is pretty close so the difference is more about bearing but for a vast majority of hub is better to switch to SKF, NTN, etc (even for DT Swiss).

Just ordered a set of Farsports 88mm carbon clinchers with ceramic Bitex hubs. Looking forward to getting them and trying them out.
