DT Swiss bearings?

I believe I need to replace the front bearings on our DTSwiss front hub. But I cannot seem to find them online. Anyone have a lead?
Thanks!

Bearing are kind of just bearings. Just buy the best quality one in the size indicated on the bearing. Find a bearing shop in your area and bring the old bearings in. Roger

Take the caps off and find the bearing number on the seal.
You can get the bearings here. These are serviceable. ENDURO RADIAL STEEL BEARINGS FOR WHEEL HUBS

I just look up a bearing company where I live. Put your old bearings into a ziplock bag and bring them to the spot and they will replace them for you, typically at a "wholesale" price significantly lower than what consumer-facing retail stores would charge. I recently overhauled four hubs and the ball bearings (also got a couple for a turntable) cost me about $3 with extra balls to spare. They typically carry higher grades as well (better than grade 25) if one cares. There's really no reason to buy a certain brand or pay S&H charges.
