A detailed look at our hubs
Bearings: ABEC5 TPI bearings (ranking among the best quality available in the market). The steal balls rotate in a cartridge unit which is easily removable for servicing using only basic tools.
Unique patented 6 pawl design: working in three groups pairs simultaneously, each pawl sprung in the traditional way, but we have added an extra coil spring to enhance stability and direct line torque transfer. This exceptional design is durable and hyper fast to engage. Depending on the hub you are using, you are guaranteed unparallel 48- or 56-point engagement in this class of wheelset.
Alloy axles and freehub bodies: Specifically chosen materials and design to reduce weight significantly, whilst reducing disruption drag from the elements. Independent analysis has shown our hubs to be amongst the top-ranked lightest hubs available.
Latest Centre-lock hubs: Our internally greased sleeves ensure quick engagement, coupled with a quick release system to deliver ease of use and maintenance. Our super-light disc hubs are suitable for all terrains, all weather conditions and all riding styles.
