What more could you want from a disc brake hub set?
Disc Brake hubs are fun! They take us on adventures, away from the hustle of our everyday lives, away from traffic, sometimes way into the unknown. When designing a great disc brake hub set, there are a few things on everybody's mind. Weight, stiffness, and smooth rolling bearings are things we have all come to just expect from our hubs. However, on a set that is going to be used in the middle of a gravel road mecca, miles from cell phone coverage, and sometimes with nobody around for hours. . . strength and durability take a precedence. With the design of the new Quest hubs, we have touched on all this and more to give every possible advantage and confidence in your wheelset.
The Centerlock mount is simply a much better way to mount disc brake rotors. You don't have to tighten down 6 individual bolts to a specific torque setting. This makes swapping rotors super quick and easy, and ensures the rotor is perfectly mounted every time. If you have a current favorite 6 bolt rotor, you can easily run a centerlock to 6 bolt adapter and still run your favorite rotors. The Centerlock design also helps for weight savings, and provides a cleaner look.
When you are riding technical trails, cross racing, or starting a sprint after jumping out of a corner, the faster you can start to pedal again the more of an advantage you will have. This especially holds true on the mountain bike trails, going over technical sections where you may need to stop and start pedaling multiple times in a matter of a few feet. Having your hub engage extremely quick can be the difference between making it through that rock garden or having to put a foot down and walk (promptly getting laughed at by all your friends).
With the Quest hubs we have 6 pawls operating in a 3X3 manner on 36 engagement teeth. This results in a super-quick 5 degrees of engagement. Now your hubs can have a quicker engagement than a reality TV star!
Shimano, and XDR Driver compatible
Easily swap freehub bodies as simple as swapping end caps. You can choose Shimano or the Sram XDR Drivers (12 speed road). Note that the Sram XDR driver is only compatible with Sram cassettes meant for XDR drivers. If the Sram cassette is not an XDR driver cassette, you will need the Shimano freehub body.
