Our Ukrainian Trailmech hubs are some of the finest gravel hubs on the market, and with their patented Vortex ratchet engagement system power transfer is almost instant offering between 6 and 7.2 degrees of travel. It’s not only quick, but also strong – the unique vortex design means that the more force you put through the pedals, the harder the ratchet engages reducing the risk of slippage.
As with all ratchet hubs, the sound of the freewheel is a distinctive mark of quality so be prepared to get used to that ‘angry bee’ sound, and wonder how you lived without it before. Note: if you’re not a fan of a loud freewheel, adding a little more 5w-40 oil to the ratchet will reduce the volume.
Inside these beautiful CNC alloy hubs, you’ll find high-quality Japanese EZO bearings for high efficiency and low maintenance.
