Craftworx Omnium Track Hubs are the perfect all rounder for track racing.
Based on the success of our Limited Edition Retro Hubs we decided to do a High Flange version for the track.
Designed and Tested by Craftworx
We wanted to design a track hub that would efficiently transfer the riders’ raw power into motion. The high flange design of our Limtied Edition Retro hubs seemed like the perfect place to start.
Zero flex and ultimate strength are the key to building a great set of track wheels. Using a high flange track hub design shortens the length of the spokes, increasing overall torsional and lateral stiffness in the wheels.
Like our Ultima Hubs, the Omnium hub shells are precision machined from a solid alloy billet. This is the only way top ensure the best possible strength for weight ratio.
For optimal rolling resistance and maximum speed we opted for low friction Enduro sealed bearings. To keep weight to a minimum and strength to a maximum, we used hollowed out Cro-Moly axles. Using slightly longer than standard axles ensures that the Omnium hubs will fit any frame with threads to spare.
Power transfer is critical so we went for a 28 spoke design. This drilling option ensures there is plenty of material left around the spoke holes while at the same time optimizing wheel strength.
We wanted to make sure that our Omnium hubs looked every bit as good as they performed. To achieve the deep black glossy luster, the hubs are first machine polished to a mirror like finish. After polishing, we apply the gloss black anodized coating.
