Strength:

Very light weight, durable, and very simple to work on. Bearings seem to last quite a while. Upgraded to a 9mm RWS thru axle. Not sure what effect that may have, but it looks boss. Not much more you can say for a front hub. Spins smooth?

Weakness:

Can't think of any. Nope, none.

Buy them.

Weakness:

weak engagement
very costly to buy

When I lend my bic to my brother in law. The first thing he say to me when he come back after using it is 'Yr bic is ultra smooth! Where did u get yr bic?'

I never regret getting this hub even its very expensive. If u give me back my money and take away my wheelset. I will still buy back this hub of wheelset. No doubt abt it!
Btw, this is a review for both front and rear hub.

These are very nice hubs. I bought mine as a wheelset from Stans (www.notubes.com) with the ZTR rims. They make an awesomely light wheelset and they have held up to my abuse (190lbs). They have some nice little design features like the extra material on the force loaded side of the disc rotor bolt holes. Every mechanic I have spoken to says they are a pleasure to work on as well. If you are building a nice, light and strong cross country wheelset then these are the hubs for you.

Price - it ain't cheap

Build a close out set of the older version from Price Point. Labeled at the time as Hayes Superlights. (They were also labeled as Magura Brand at one point.)

I've got the front wheel built with a Sun Sub IV Rim and 14-15 spokes. Hand-build. It's on it's second rim. Gotta remember two things... 1) Don't try to out jump the guy on the freeride bike, 2) Don't try this when you need to true (and tighten) your front wheel.

They've taken a pounding under my 200 pound behind, without complaint. I'm a XC rider, so no drops, gaps, or north-shore rides on the build, but these hubs are not designed for that either. Had to rebuild the front hub into a new wheel once, and that was done without any issues.

They build into a pretty light and durable wheelset. If I had to pay MSRP - take away at least one, maybe two chilies on the value side.

Strength:

Very Lightweight.Alot cheaper than Cris King.

Weakness:

Its ugly.

Well theres not much to tell on the front hub, as long as it spins freely. which it has in the 6 months Ive used it. I dont jump,or freestyle much, just XC race. So as long as it holds up like it has, I can say Id buy it again.

See the bottom line.

This is a very nice hub and its extremely lightweight. It required no break in time and spun very well from the beginning. It is kind of pressure sensitive so if one puts the QR on too tight the disc brake rotor could rub. The pressure however does not affect the rotation of the wheel it still spins very freely. I am very impressed with this hub and would not hesitate buying another one.
