Bombtrack’s Arise hubs make it easy to build stiff, solid singlespeed wheels thanks to their wider spacing compared to running a stack of spacers on traditional freehubs.
The flanges are set wider, and the freehub section gets narrower, providing just enough width to let you fine tune your chainline. That it uses a standard freehub shaped section rather than threaded cogs makes it even easier to use over the long run, too, and provides plenty of options for after market cog sizes. That is, if the included 15/16/17 tooth cogs aren’t enough for ya.
Spacers are also included in the deal, and matching front hubs are also available. Check full specs, color options and more pics below…
The bolt-on 10mm axle should make for very secure fittings on sliding dropouts.
MATERIAL: 6061-T6 alloy, full cnc machined
AXLE: 10mm regular crmo
BEARING: hub shell and driver both with 2 high quality sealed bearings
DRIVER: includes 15T, 16T, 17T cogs.
SPACING: 130mm, cassette drive system
WEIGHT: 202g front / 629g rear
UPDATE: Price is $189.95 for the rear hub with all three cogs and spacers. Weight for the rear includes the axle, bolts, spacers and cog. They admit that’s still a bit heavy, but the heat treated axle makes up a fair chunk of that. They’re working on a lighter weight version that’s ‘cross/road specific without the overbuilt-for-BMX heft of this one.
