A very stout and heavy duty hub. Tall flanges help build a strong wheel. It has a high degree of engagement and screams as you coast which I personally like. The Noir black has to be the nicest black out there. The bearings spin smooth, fast, and long. The freehub and the internals are very nicely machined and put together. This hub handled some pretty high tension builds with no problems even though it is not recommended. It is a great all around hub that performs very well on road wheels for an affordable price. This hub will indeed go on future wheel builds. Hopefully a centerlock version will come out in the future as well.
If I told you that...
I think they are a brilliant design, incredibly versatile due to their modular design allowing for traditional QR or thru axle change-ups, and freehub removal for maintenance, replacement or drivetrain swaps, all without tools, and they look great in either noir or argent ;-) ...
then there may not be any left when I need more.
I have used a considerable amount Velo Orange components on my "fleet" of bikes because I love both the aesthetic and the price of these items. I was patiently waiting for black anodized hubs for two of my bikes. Now they have been laced into the wheels and I am content.
Hell yeah, badass!
Love it. My LBS built me a new wheel with this hub and lm very happy!
