    The XC version is can be converted between 9mm, 15mm, and 20mm axles. The DH is a few grams heavier than the XC version with 20mm adapters, but is stiffer and more durable for DH and FR uses.

    The DH hub is slightly heavier at 216g and is also convertible from 20x110mm to 15x100mm thru-axle. So, it comes as a 20mm hub and needs a conversion kit for 15mm.

    The DH hub has larger O.D. bearings than the XC hub. I ordered mine from Ball Racing with the 15mm axle factory installed.

    The down hill front hub, 15mm now weighs 182g, XC 15mm now 176g. Rear hub 142x12 now at 326g lighter than CK. Hadley I feel one of the best hubs you can buy!! Hadley with Derby rims I can't wait !!
