Velocity USA is throwing out some interesting products lately. First, it was the fairly wide Dually 29+ rim. Now, it’s an 11-speed hub that can work equally well on a road, cyclocross or mountain bike. Not only does it come ready for 135mm QR and 12×142 thru axle setups, you’ll have the option of 11-speed freehub bodies for Campagnolo, Shimano/SRAM or XX1. It’ll ship with one set up of your choice, other options will be available aftermarket and are easy to swap.
The official product name is simply Lightweight Disc Hub. At just 265g, that fits. It’ll be spec’d on all of their 2014 Comp and Pro cyclocross and mountain wheelsets, all of which are built in house. It uses an oversized alloy axle and is rated for “all mountain” use on the dirt.
