To follow the current trend for faster engaging hubs with more teeth and more pawls, we would have to compromise on durability and strength of design. After analyzing and testing, we found that 3 synchronized pawls engaging simultaneously was the ideal combination for a light smooth and not too noisy mechanism.
High performance hubs require servicing to keep them running at their best. We recommend having your Craftworx hubs serviced every 10,000 kms.
The Enduro bearings used in our hubs have an optimum working life and should be checked, and when necessary, replaced during the service.
Freehub bodies should be checked for wear and when necessary replaced during servicing. Modern cassette designs tend to “bed in”, creating grooves in the hardened alloy body. Over time and use grooves become deeper, making it hard to remove and replace the cassette.
We carry replacement bearings and freehub bodies for all of hubs, they are available on our web site and are affordable to replace.
