I.W.C. House Brand Road Hubset: Minuscule Details Make the Wheel

Any great wheelset has to have a strong center; in this case, a solid hubset. I use my own house-branded road hubset for my Premium Alloy and Premium Carbon rim brake builds. These hubs are light, use standard, non-proprietary Enduro bearings, and are easily serviceable. They come in at a third of the cost of most other high-end hubs and at a lower weight, without compromising durability.

  • Front Hub:
    • 31mm Tall Flanges | Widely Spaced
    • 86g | QR
  • Rear Hub:
    • 45mm Tall Non-DS Flange
    • 51mm Tall DS Flange
    • 210g | QR
    • Shimano / SRAM w/ Anti-Bite Guard or Campy Compatible
    • 6 Pawls | 48 Contact Points | Engagement every 7.5º

A great feature of this hub is an “Anti-Bite guard.” The alloy freehub body has 3 small, steel bars to prevent the cassette from marring, or digging into the splines. This makes any and all cassette swaps much easier!
