MTB Hub Tech | Everything You Should Know To Get The Best Out Of Your Mountain Bike Hubs

Published on April 24th 2021


Mountain bike hubs can be pretty confusing! Consider: what axle spacing? Do you want a pawl or ratchet ring system? ultra-fast or slightly less engagement? What spoke type do you need and why does it even matter? There's a lot of tech going on in mountain bike hubs, and they're right in the firing line of mud and grit from the trails we ride so it's important to remember to service them. This video helps answer your questions on what to look for, and how to get the most from your mountain bike hubs.
