Hope, Bitex or Industry Nine Hubs

We build our wheels with Hope, Bitex and Industry Nine hubs as standard but if you want any others, please just ask.


Hope Pro4 hubs                                                                                       

Manufactured just up the road in Barnoldswick, we have always loved Hope hubs. No others come close when it comes to choice of fittings, choice of colours, availability of parts, adaptability and serviceability. Highlights include:

  • Huge reliability, longevity and serviceability
  • Tried and trusted – these hubs have been around for as long as any of us can remember 
  • Total adaptability – if you ever change your frame or fork, or a new ‘standard’ fitting or freehub body comes out in the future, you can be sure Hope will produce the parts to get your existing wheels to fit. 
  • Fantastic warranty and customer service
  • All parts are easily accessible and always will be
  • Available in a choice of 6 colours: black, silver, red, blue, orange and purple

Industry Nine 1/1 hubs

Looking for a hubset that is budget friendly yet high performance?
The new 1/1 hubs from Industry Nine have you covered.

With 90 points of engagement and a six pawl dual phased system the 1/1 utilises a 45 tooth drivering that provides an amazing 4 degrees between engagement.

The 1/1 offer the weight and performance normally only found in much more expensive hubs.

1/1 hubs are machined, assembled and anodised in Industry Nines own factory in the USA.


  • High Load sealed cartridge bearings
  • SRAM XD, Shimano HG and Shimano Miicrospline 12spd freehub body options
  • Super fast 4 degree engagement
  • Service friendly retained pawl system
  • Leaf spring pawl actuation
  • Labyrinth radial lip seal and end cap seals

Industry Nine Hydra Classic

Hydra is the culmination of over two years in development and countless hours of testing and refining.
With an incredible 690 points of engagement (that’s just 0.52 degrees), the new Hydra drive system is the next level in hub technology.

Utilising a 115 tooth drivering and a phased six pawl engagement Industry Nine Hydra re-writes the rules for hub performance.

The design is a continually “phased” drive system that creates a procession of engagement points between the pawls and the drivering.
By utilising the inherent flex in the hub system, it allows positive second, third or even fourth pawl contact providing almost instant engagement that means solid power transfer from your legs to your pedals.
The new design also minimises stress through the system that results in longer lasting bearings and less drag

Every Hydra Classic hub is manufactured from start to finish in Industy Nines own factory in the United States.
From design and development, engineering, manufacturing, and anodising right through to final assembly.
