    They all suck except for the White Industries ENO for off road. Shimanos are pretty silent.

    http://www.trueprecision.net/ are probably the quietest hubs, but not BMX, but interesting.

    Ccurious are you really looking for quiet or the best...Chris King with their instant engagement are the best...ACS or Shimano's are prolly the quietest.
    Lotsof good ones, but the white bros for bmx are weak sauce.

    What are you talking about?

    1. Chris King is not a freewheel, it is a freehub.
    2. There really aren't a lot of good ones. There is the White Industries, then there are the rest. There are a few distributed in Europe that are good quality, but that's Europe.
    3. White Bros doesn't make freewheels or even hubs, they make forks.
    4. Is weak sauce a negative? I do not understand your lingo.

    Perhaps he meant this, The King is a free hub which has a Single Speed Cog.
    Made with the same care and flawlessness as all other King products. These Cogs are avail in Aluminum or Stainless Steel and a variety of sizes. Fit Chris King Hubs as well as any hub that uses a Shimano Freehub Body, Follow the maintenance instructions and use some high tech grease and you can quiet those down to the most silent of silent modes, but if your'e in cold weather the grease might thicken a bit.... White industries have failed repeatedly at the BMX tracks I've raced at. ,The OP can visit any BMX national and ask the pros what they use, the power and torque they generate out of the gate put alot of stress on a weak sauce hub...translation---, weak.
    ACS used to make a freewheel called the stealth thats an option.

    You'd want the TRIALS version of the White Industries ENO freewheel. It's green anodized, has 72/3 pawl setup, I would say that's your ticket to spinning like a beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    Cheapo Shimano BMX freewheels are virtually silent
