Torch freehub

Featuring all of the advantages of the Torch freehub -low drag, low weight, and the ultimate in freehub compatibility- tied into a traditional, "Classic" hub, but utilizing Shimano's Center Lock brake rotor interface!

lower drag, Lower weight

The Torch road hubs use the same drivering and pawls as the mountain hubs. However, we reduced the pawl count to 3 instead of 6 for lower drag and weight while still achieving an industry leading (for road hubs) 6 degree engagement.  Relocated bearings, and a new freehub seal reduce freehub drag while coasting.  

The Torch road hubs now feature custom Teflon contact seals for the endcaps, which we manufacture in-house. They fully seal the hubs from mud and water - tight enough for a muddy CX season, but smooth enough for drag-free road miles.
