Nicely Made Hub But Axle Not Strong Enough For Dh!

4 stars

Posted on 31st, October 2019 about V6 Rear Hub - UK MADE by S. Pagram

Very nicely made hub, great pickup and proper seals (although my first hub adaptors were too tight against the seals and stopped the freehub from working but superstar replaced them quickly). Sadly though I managed to bend the axle on mine, now to be fair I do live in the French Alps and the trails are rough compared to most of the UK but it's the 1st time I've bent an axle here having previously run Mavic, SRAM and the old Taiwanese superstar hubs without a problem. For UK trail and enduro riding these are a great hub but I wouldn't recommend them for DH

SUPERSTAR COMMENT:

Hello we haven't had axle bending issues reported before so it must have been a bit impact? The axles are huge wall thickness so we are surprised if that is the case! We stock all the spares for easy service and if you contact customer service they will sort you out
