I'd argue the low engagement ratchet just has longer maintenance windows, not actually more reliability. If you keep a 56t star-ratchet clean and lubed, it'll keep going for quite a while, with not much more chance of sudden breakage vs an 18t. DT claims the entire ring having contact is why they're so awesome. More or less teeth isn't changing that contact area by much. Are they wrong? Isn't that the whole benefit of the system over pawls?
