- Hubs are probably one of the most difficult parts on a bike. Palatina Works designed a lightweight Cross Country Disc Hub-set. Weight savings on this hubset are not realized by reducing thediameter of the axles and the size of the bearings. Some hub manufacturers go this way, in order to built light hubs. On our hubs, all parts are well dimensioned and built to last. Our customers can choose between standard or ceramic ball bearings. Another key feature of the hub is, that it can be easily disassembled and serviced. 9mm, 12mm and 15mm Axle solutions are available. Weight starts from: 111g (front) and 214g (rear).
- The hub body is made from forged 7075 T6 material - just a few manufacturers forge the hubshells with this material in order to get the maximum strengh out of the hubshell.
- All other hub parts, such as the axles, the freewheel body and the sidecaps are made from 7075 T6 material as well.
- The front and the rear axle have a diameter of 17mm at the bearing seats. Weight reductions were realized by removing axle material on the outside structure where it is not needed.
- Another feature of our hubs are the anodized axles, which prevent from oxidation and corrosion.
- The freewheelbody has 3 pawls, the gear-ring has 24 teeth. This configuration ensures a hub drive system which lasts. 24 engagements is a reliable choice which will still work after a certain usage, even the teeth and the gear-ring show a little bit wear. Other manufacturers strive for excessive engagement points. Due to the micro structure of the gear-ring and pawls, these systems tend to wear out quite fast and fail to work even just a little bit of water gets into the hub.
- Soon available are rear hubs with a titanium gear-ring and titanium pawls. This will reduce the weight of the rear hub by approximately 10G.
- The hubs are available with 28 and 32 holes.
