The very trick looking hub shell body is CNC machined from 7075-T651, while the freehub uses 7068 alloys for durability and strength (20% stronger), and they turn on one piece aluminum axles and use sealed industrial Japanese ABEC grade 5 bearings. The freehubs come in two different engagement configurations, 3 or 6 degree (3 degree tested).
The freehub uses an arrangement of two sets of three pawls (the second one is phased three degree’s from the first), which are made from A2 tool steel, and each has three points, for 9 points of contact per set. They interface into a A2 hardened 60 tooth drive ring, giving 3 degree’s of engagement, for a final whooping 120 points!
Driver – 120 points, 3 degree engagement, 6 pawl mechanism, 60 tooth ring
