Ignore that “8-9” speed stuff, they’re good for 9/10 speed drivetrains…we asked.

That hub’s gonna be loud.

To the other Colin: I saw them at NAHBS, and they didn’t seem any louder than my Hope Pro 3’s.

These were shown at interbike two years ago and they never went into production. Are they finally going to do it? Are the rear hubs compatible with the 143×12 standard?

Profile has the worst customer service. Their hubs are trash & the company is terrible for anything other than bmx. Beware, MTB’rs.

These hubs are SICK!

They have the same drive ring/ pawl system as the Elite BMX hubs.They sound cool; like a bunch of pissed off angry bee’s, similar to a I9 or maybe King. Top BMX pro’s put out 2000+ watts in BMX races. If they hold up for BMX, they’ll hold up for trail riding.

I’ve had excellent customer service from Profile; never had an issue with any of their products, and I have a lot of them. Kyle needs to come out of the closet and deal with his pent up feelings. He’ll live a much happier life.
