    Rumored to be pretty portly. I can't say much as I am on a Saint hub at about 475g
    I think they are somewhat new to market or atleast in the US so not much info yet.

    i ride a front one for few month... nothing is wrong with it beside flashy painting. probably the most of front hubs are good as this one. The major reason why I bought it - it works with 9mm bolt thru axle. I've been thinking about a new rear wheel for FS bike but most likely it will be either a new saint built with mavic 521 by CRC or a new mavic crossline (it also supporst saint axle).

    Im running a rear 135mm with a 10mm quick release. Its a good strong hub with 4 bearings in it and its stiff as hell with a 10mm axle. If your getting one go the 10mm over the 5mm for the stiffness.

    Never heard of them. Wonder why they're not Accelerants? I mean what with the fire thing and all, or was that name taken? Guess they're so good they morph into Excelerants
