Description

At Superstar Components we always strive for better, faster, stronger. While the hubsets we imported from our original suppliers over the last ten years were OK, we still tweaked the designs over the years and introduced the highest quality bearings from SKF to make them stand out from the competition. But they just could not provide what we needed so we decided to bring all hub production inhouse. So after several years of designing, testing and huge investment in the highest quality CNC machines we are launching our own hubs, made with no compromises.

The Road2 range of hubs are the perfect balance of strength, weight and performance for road riding. Designed with durability in mind, the oversize axle and large PCD flanges give better spoke angles than lesser hubsets for stiffer and stronger wheel builds. Large precision bearings and oversize 17mm thru axles for rigidity and superior performance.

We have added in all the features we desired for the perfect hub. Custom seals, Custom bearings, oversize axles, oversize flanges, extra detailed machining all add upto the ultimate hubset. As we are producing these by the thousand we can offer market leading quality for a reasonable price, with long term spares backup direct from the manufacturer.

Road2 Rear Hub Features:

7075 T6 aerospace grade Aluminium

SKF Bike Specific Bearings - The ultimate quality sealed bearing

Precision CNC machined endcaps

High gloss anodise finish

Weight removal by extensive CNC machining.

 

Manufactured with pride in the UK:

We manufacture our inhouse UK manufactured hub range using the best technology available. We've installed a state of the art FANUC robot cell to load and unload the forgings into our 16,000RPM Brother MX140, meaning we can make our hubshells 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (want to see more? Check out our manufacturing on the videos tab!) Once CNC machined, we send our hubs off to a specialist in Manchester, UK to be colour anodised, before they're returned to us to be laser etched using our Trumpf high-precision fibre laser. Then they're assembled by our skilled technicians in our purpose built assembly room, packaged up and delivered to you. 

Its nice when something special doesn't cost the earth!


Tech Specs

Build information using DT spoke calc:

  • PCD Left - 48mm
  • PCD Right - 55mm
  • Spoke hole ID - 2.5mm
  • Flange Left - 40mm
  • Flange Right - 17mm
  • Weight: 280g

Note: Weights are generated by weighing a randomly selected wheelset with freehub and adaptors fitted. Due to the manufacturing process components parts vary, so this value is to be taken as guide not a guarantee. Our values are not to be confused with "optimistic" theoretical weights some manufactures claim which are often hundreds of grams understated.

Our wheels are focused on durability and long life, not weight weenie gram chasing. Sure we could easily save 100g a wheelset by putting tiny thin section bearings which don't last in our hubs but that's not upto the quality we require. If you want crazy light and unusable products we cannot help sorry.
