    - patented 6 pawls freehub working in two pairs for 48 engagement points per revolution for quick traction out of turns

    - The flanges are narrowly spaced and the dish on such a wheel is high so it is crucial to build such wheels with an asymmetric rear rim for better wheel balance and strength. for the same reason, we do not offer low spoke count for this hub.
