Featuring all of the advatages of the Torch freehub -low drag, low weight, and the ultimate in freehub compatibility- tied into a traditional, "Classic" hub.
The Torch road hubs use the same drivering and pawls as the moutain hubs. However, we reduced the pawl count to 3 instead of 6 for lower drag and weight while still achieving an industry leading (for road hubs) 6 degree engagement. Relocated bearings, and a new freehub seal reduce freehub drag while coasting.
The Torch road hubs now feature custom Teflon contact seals for the endcaps, which we manufacture in-house. They fully seal the hubs from mud and water - tight enough for a muddy CX season, but smooth enough for drag-free road miles.
We pride ourselves as one of the most compatible wheel and hub manufacturers on the planet. Our systems are deliberately designed with adaptability to various frame, fork and drivetrains - all on the same hubshell. In short, we have you covered. Axle and end cap kits along with freehub bodies are available from our webstore or your local i9 dealer.
