The HS-R080 hub is equipped with a special patented design. R080 is designed to fit the "Angular Contact Ball" bearing, which is different from the pressure angle in 0 degrees of the bearing embedded in the universal hubs. There is even an adjustment system for fine adjustment. The design of the pressure angle makes the running hub smoother, and more supportive in terms of lateral rigidity. The bearing of the pressure angle not only can extend the service life of the bearing but also can be easily repaired.
Steel Wear Plate is designed exclusively on both Road and MTB Hubs for Shimano system, which can efficiently prevents from the bites by freewheels.
For road bike hub, it’s 3 pawls with 3 clicks on each pawl for matching 48 teeth ratchet; for MTB hub, it’s 4 pawls with 3 clicks. Forty-eight teeth engagements with 3 clicks on each pawl can help the body to convey the driving force more accurately and instantly.
Hub Cinch is composed of cinch-nut and cinch cap. After replacing the oringinal hub caps with Hubsmith Cinch-Caps,screw the Cinch-Nuts on Cinch-Caps and tighten the hex screw on the nuts to make the Cinch-Nuts tightly bite on the teeth of the Cinch-Caps in order to lock the axle in place to prevent the nut from loosening. Hubsmith's patented HUB CINCH allows users to safely and securely mount and lock a wheel on any bicycle. No need for bulky general quick release!
Using weld processing on the series of Hubsmith aluminium wheels, it perfectly joins the two alloy surfaces and makes it invisible. Welding finishing on the joining develops rim performance and provides better stiffness than Sleeve and Pin processing.
Full carbon fiber process technology designs for Hubsmith carbon fiber wheels. That the lightweight carbon fiber interlaminates 3K and UD attributes gives the rider the most direct road cycling feedback.
