The hub has special bearing system that allows the hub to roll as freely as possible without resistance so it’s the best spinning hub out there.
Straight pull spokes are stronger than J bend spokes because they work purely on the tensile strength of the spoke. Tensile strength is the resistance to the spoke being pulled at both ends. By using a straight pull spokes design we creating one of the strongest and stiffest wheels in BMX. It’s really easy to lace the wheel, just push the spoke into the hub and the spoke goes right to the corresponding hole in the rim. Built up the spokes create a noticeably stiffer wheel.
The spokes are laced 5 cross. I chose 5 cross because it made it possible to assemble the wheel where there was room to feed the spokes into the hub. The spokes lace perpendicular to the center of the hub which is the strongest lacing pattern for wheels.
The driver uses a 3 pawl system that engages 3 pawls simultaneously. And it uses a ceramic plain bearing instead of little cartridge bearings that can tend to break.
The axle has a unique thread design that prevents cross threading. The bolts thread directly into the 7075 T6 aluminum axle. Our tests have shown that the aluminum threads are very strong so that under high torque the bolt will pull apart before the threads strip out.
The 3/8” heat-treated chromoly axle bolts are made to be used directly with the ratchet or extension.
*Before you buy be sure to order some of our Twigs n' Berries Straight Pull Spokes as traditional J-Bend spokes are non compatible with our Straight Pull Hubs. Please refer to our Spoke Length Chart to calculate which length spokes you'll need!!!*
