No frills hubs that get the job done

Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

Durable and strong

The Bad:

Hub engagement is not as instant as with some of the higher end hubs such as Industry Nine, King...etc

Overall Review:

There seems to be some mixed reviews about these hubs but I’ve had mine for over two years now and they still work like new with no real maintenance being done on them this whole time. Some of the negative feedback is surrounding the play that can sometimes start within the axle/bearings but mine are still smooth with no friction and no play. I’ve used these in variable conditions including mud and snow and there has been no impact to performance. These came stock on my bike and although I do admit they would not have been my first choice for hubs they have not caused any issues so there is no reason to replace.

I have noticed recently that the hub engagement is not as instant as with some of the higher end hubs such as Hadley, King or Hope but overall it’s not that noticeable. The only other issue (and this is strictly due to my own issue with liking a pimped out wheelset) is that these are kind of bland when you compare to a hubs like the ones mentioned above they are just very plain but performance wise they do get the job done so thats really all that should matter.
