Nuke Proof Generator hubs

Nuke Proof has some new products available.  Inside we take a look at their 20mm and 150mm Generator hubset.

The 32 hole front Generator hub is convertible between 20mm and quick release.  The end caps come off easily to make the transition from QR to 20mm.

The hubs are made of 7075 alloy and are quite easy to service without any special tools.  There is a sub axle in the design which helps with thwart any troublesome bearings.

The hubs have got a 6 pawl system with leaf springs which are located in the main body.  Typically the pawl mechanism is attached to the freehub body but it’s reversed in this design to try to increase the strength of the design.  There are a total of 30 engagement points in the steel ratchet.

We’ve got these hubs installed and so far they’ve been smooth and reliable.  They do not make much of any noise and the engagement is defintily more than adequate.  They roll smoothly overall and haven’t made much of a peep.  We’ll keep you posted as we get more miles on them.

Overall they’re a pretty light hubset and the price is right.  You can easily find them for under $300 a set which makes them a very good bargain.
