New Proper hubs
Here's the lowdown on the new Proper hubs...
The Proper MagTi hubs have been
really popular over the last couple of years but are no longer available. This
is because the price of Titanium has recently doubled, making the cost of the
material too expensive. The current MagLite hub has a similar design to the
MagTi but uses a crmo axle and driver. The weight is a little more at 400g, but
the hub is a lot cheaper than the MagTi was. In November 08 we will have the new
version of the MagLite coming. This hub will have a ceramic driver bearing which
will last a whole lot longer than the regular ball bearings (that almost all
hubs use). This new hub will also be a stack lighter than either the MagLite or
the old MagTi and with the ceramic bearing it will also be one
of the toughest... The price too will be good at under $300 RRP, keep an eye on the website for more info and to find out when the new hubs are
Here's what Carlo from Proper has to
say about the new hubs... "For a while now we have been working on new
bearings for our cassette hubs... We are going to be using a self lubricating
ceramic bearing that will never fail... For now we use cartridge
bearings as everyone else does and they will only take a certain amount of abuse
before they break... Riding has got out of hand now and its time for things to
change... We will be introducing these in all our hubs
towards the end of this year.. (First shipment is expected November 2008) The picture below is a hub we have been
working on and testing for some time.."
