The heart of the Syntace wheelsets are the self-developed Syntace hubs (Pat. pend.) Finest turning and milling art, simple in appearance, but with superior inner values. Due to the special grease filling of the bearings and 25 % higher water absorption of the bearing grease, the Straight RS is a real all-weather hub with highest Syntace precision.
Decisive for the stability of the whole front wheel with disc brake is the diameter of the spoke flange. Here an extreme torque acts on the spokes, nipples and rim holes during braking. The smaller the diameter, the worse, because this increases the additional tensile stress during braking, which fatigues and destroys hubs, spokes, nipples and rims. The flange diameter of the Syntace Straight MX front hub is therefore more than 40 mm here. And that with a hub body weight of only 58 g.
The freehub features patented interlocking steel inserts that transfer the power from the 7075 Aluminum freehub to the cassette. Particularly looking at the high demands of mountain biking, this design prevents cassettes to get stuck as on an Aluminum freehub. The inserts can be exchanged easily (Licence American Classic/USA)
Micro adjustment of the hub bearing clearance
The all-new and test stand approved hub body is made from 7050 Aluminum and can be fine tuned with the latest design MicroAdjust end caps for tension-free wheel truing.
3-times sealed bearings
New double Syntace Duraseal end caps protect the double sealed Syntace precision hub bearings. Filled with grease that features a 25% higher water absorption, corrosion is prevented even further.
90 % higher bearing stress resistance
Our former hub bearings (and those of most of our competitors) with the measurement 17x26x5mm can cope with 130kg before they are deformed. The new, super durable Syntace 30mm bearings of the MX hub can handle up to 250kg.
