We start making the MTX hubset by forging the shell from alloy then we CNC machine away the excess material. This allows the hub to be strong, light and precisely made. The strength of the shell helps to support the spokes and allows for a very strong wheel build. It also allows us to strip away unnecessary weight so this hubset weighs just over 350 grams.
Low weight works well for road bike riders but mountain bike riders put a lot more stress on their hubs with bigger bikes and lower gears. These hubs have to be stronger than our road bike hubs. To make sure these hubs can take all the abuse a mountain bike rider dishes out, we extensively test these hubs so they can handle tough riders, bad conditions and horrible terrain.
