New: super lightweight disc brake hubs by M5

June 25th, 2008To the top

Currently fiercely tested by specialists, later available for everyone

New: super lightweight disc brake hubs by M5Never done before anywhere in the world: disc brake hub set (front) of less than 100 grammes. With just 99 grammes we now have the most lightweight disc brake hub in the world. Incidentally, also one of the most rigid hubs ever too, thanks to the large diameter of the hub housing. Furthermore we introduced a rather revolutionary disc placement: the six cut out, dirt collecting "lobes" are completely absent.
The bearings have an extra seal by means of two rubber rings around the 15 mm hollow axles. This extra sealing provides an even longer lifespan of the bearings.
For an extra price of just 50 euro (incl Vat) ceramic bearings vouch for an even longer lifespan. The silicon-nitride bearings pulvarize pretty much every they encounter!

Like al our lightweight parts, the hubs are laser engraved with the M5 logo, and have been anodised black or red.

For now only available in 32 hole version, no sooner than the end of August 2008.

This set of hubs combines excellently with those splendid, newly designed 40 mm high ATB rims by M5!

The characteristics of the M5 disc brake hubs
  • Unique design with maintenance free disc attachment
  • Anodised 7075-T6 aluminium
  • Assembling width front: 100 mm, rear: 135 mm
  • Flange diameter front: 44/66 mm, rear: 64.5/69 mm
  • Flange diameter front: 60 mm, rear: 54 mm
  • 15 mm hollow aluminium axles
  • Lasered logo
  • Extra rubber O-rings in dust caps
  • No bodyweight restrictions!
  • Also available with full ceramic or hybrid ceramic bearings
  • 32 hole version

Tijmen's experiences now also in English
