Black and polished here, silver at the top. Claimed weight for the RHUB is 368g to 371g. Spacing is changed by using different end caps.
I9’s freehubs also bring along their sturdy bearing pattern. Three sealed cartridges sit between the axle and the rest of it, two under the freehub body. A fourth, larger SCB sits between the freehub and hub shell, just like in I9’s hubs. Want them to be a little quieter? Just remove three of the pawls, which will slightly reduce drag, too, but increase engagement to six degrees.
The Disc RHUB gets standard 6-bolt spacing and comes in at a claimed 427g.
