Onyx takes a fresh approach to the mountain bike rear hub, in an effort to eliminate drag and increase engagement. Instead of a traditional pawl engagement system, Onyx opts for a high-tech sprag clutch that is virtually drag-free when not engaged. When you put the power down, engagement is nearly instantaneous. And an added bonus: the hub is dead silent. All you'll hear on the trail is the sound of your tires gripping the trail, nothing else. *IMPORTANT COMPATIBILITY NOTE: This hub is NOT compatible with e*thirteen cassettes.*
Spank 359 (Vibracore) Rims:
Vibrocore™ inner well, reduces the transmission of harmful vibration frequencies, meaning less vibration for the suspension and rider, also increasing the fatigue life of the rim
5mm inner width is extremely versatile, fitting tires from 2.0” to 2.6”, and even allowing + size tire use without negative squaring off of tire profiles
Bead Bite tubeless hooks enhance tubeless performance and tire security, even at lower pressures. Moderately low 19mm profile height and wide width, balances the benefits of radial compliance with high lateral stiffness and predictable handling
Radial Compliance improves traction over bumps and chatter, while reducing negative feedback to the rider. Performance and comfort are improved.
