Gates and White Industries have partnered up to produce the CDX freewheel. The CDX is built using the industry leading ENO platform. It features a center track system, 22 tooth profile, and a 36 pawl engagement system. The body is 8620 ally steel that is case hardened and nickel plated, and the sealed bearings are serviceable. MSRP is set at $275.

Past the jump you get XX1 and fat bike hubs.

Want to run XX1 with your White Industries crankset? Now you can thanks to this new spider.

White Industries Fat Bike Hubs

White Industries joins the fray and launches their SnoWhite fat bike hubs. They are trying out a new color for the first time in a long time. Anodized matte grey is shown here. A high polished version will be available as well. Widths are 135mm front and 170mm rear.

If there is one thing I want in a single speed, its more expensive parts

I’m digging that matte gray. Hopefully it’ll sell well enough to offer it on all their hubs.

I’ll step on all the dwarves to get to those hubs

Does the front hub match the rear hub standard (to fit Surly and Salsa forks) or the front standard (like a Paul hub) to fit some of the other aftermarket forks?

Just eyeballing it, it looks like the former.

@robert – thanks for question. I have updated the post.

Bwahaha! $275 freewheel?!?

I’ll 2nd that, Walt. And, why would they wait for XX1 to release a spider. I would have bought their cranks a long time ago if I had the option of a standard 104 bcd spider.

I was pretty stoked on the freewheel until I saw the $275 price tag.

White Industries stuff is way nice. Too bad belt drive sucks and blows, and so does SRAM.
