This is something we have been working on for years. It’s a product range we are also looking to expand in time and something that was far harder to get off of the ground than we ever imagined! We wanted a pair of hubs here that you could absolutely thrash but didn’t cost or weigh much either. The design has been comprehensively tested and comes with a two year warranty (not including bearings).
2.4mm thick axle (for those not familiar with axle thickness, this is approximately very thick)
6 pawls offset into two groups of 3
27t ratchet ring
54 points of engagement
Labyrinth seals on the external caps and for the freehub. The freehub seal is an interference fit on the hub shell with the labyrinth running freely in a groove in the freehub itself. The seal is very easy to install however as we know it can be very fiddly on some other British made hubs…..
The hub is a stacked system end to end. The end caps are an interference fit, no threading and no loosening. It’s a snug fit with a rubber o-ring providing the interference. The stacking is spaced between the freehub and hub shell bearing with a thick alloy washer/spacer to prevent damage to the axle at this point.
17287 and 6903 bearings are used in the hubs depending on the model/location. We carry spares for their replacement.
The end caps and freehubs are interchangeable to allow easy subsequent conversion. The front hubs can easily be changed between boost and non-boost. The rear hubs are boost/non-boost specific.
These hubs are ideally suited to all types of rider and riding. They are a fit and forget workhorse at an entirely reasonable price. We very much look forward to expanding the range in the future to include centrelock hubs, colours and other drillings so watch this space.
We offer a free laser etching service on these hubs. Have your logo or name etched onto the hubs in a high quality, permanent finish. Contact us for details.
