Looking at the picture it could mean a new hub standard... They cut outs look like you could move the break flange over a few mm meaning the spoke flanges could be moved out for a stronger wheel

"coming it at 507g with a 32t direct mount ring. This compared to the other offerings on the market is very competitive, coming in roughly 40g lighter than another key manufacturer's carbon crank"

Better options abound....

Make sure the stops are hard( without dragging them you should need to lean back to not go over the bars when doing fronts), fast to walking pace, and do it very quick back to back. Yes it takes a lot of work but it will help. After this is all done ... more »
