Want the revolutionary 38W rim but can’t necessarily afford to step up to the “boutique” level hubs? Want a light set of good quality import hubs – the same sort of hubs that everyone else if branding as their own but charging “boutique” level prices for? Need to add a race only setup with a specific tire tread for special events? The Race 38W is most likely the best choice for you. We simply went to the import hub manufacturer we have been using to great success for years and had them supply us with the best value hub option for our rim. You get a nice lightweight, high performance hub that may not have the nice stuff like a Titanium freehub driver, or extra sealing, but will get the job done.
