Yes, this hub spins very smoothly due to extremely high tolerance machined bearing bores (.0001″!), high quality user-adjustable sealed cartridge bearings, and a hub shell design that has been refined over years of production and real world abuse to be as light as possible while still withstanding the abuse that the biggest, most foolish…..er, I mean, daring….riders can put it through.
But the real star of the show might be the super-stiff, super-light, flex-free, interchangeable 7075 Alloy axle. Available in 3 configurations: Quick-Release, Bolt-On, and Thru-Axle, it passes from dropout to dropout (unlike the flexy, non-adjustable caps so common on cheaper hubs that love to pop off and roll under your car or workbench every time you take your wheel off). In the future, if you switch forks or get a new bike, you can easily change out the existing axle for whichever style of attachment fits your new fork.
Fresh bearings and axle conversion kits are available for hub overhauls and rebuilds in the Hub Service Parts section.
