Along with the 6 ceramic sealed bearings, the free hub utilizes a ring of needle bearings in the freehub body/axle contact. This reduces friction between the rotating surfaces during freewheel decents. Hubs use compatible freehub bodies available in Campagnolo or Shimano/Sram. Wheelset weights are quoted with Shimano freehub bodies and rim strips—no corner cutting here.

Suggested retail price: $550/pair.
