    Is This DT Swiss 350 Legit?

    I'm planning to buy a DT Swiss 350 Hub from an LBS. I'm pretty sure that they are reputable and only sell legit items since they sell products from boutique brands as well. However, I wonder if the DT Swiss Hub I'm buying is legit or not because they have different packaging (all-white cardboard instead of brown cardboard with DT-Swiss brand on it)

    Any thought on this?

    Bang for the buck. One of the best hubs on the market.

    Looks legit to me and I've seen a ton of them.

    I've got some bikes, some guns,
    and a bunch of skateboards

    Thanks for the answer. Do you mean DT Swiss hub with varying type of packagings?

    Yes. The new ones come in white cardboard packaging with a shrink-wrap type of plastic surrounding the hub inside to keep it from shifting inside the cardboard. I've built a ton of wheels with these hubs, most recently last week.

    And I think it's really weird that you'd think a hub from a LBS that sells high end stuff is counterfeit because of the packaging. Companies change packaging at times, you know.
