M5 Lightweight disc hubs

To the top
M5 Lightweight disc hubsNever 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.

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

Available in 32 hole version,

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

M5 Flanged rear hub, one of the LIGHTEST rear hubs in the world!

October 21st, 2006To the top
M5 Flanged rear hub, one of the LIGHTEST rear hubs in the world!Another sample of "light and yet rigid": the M5 flanged rear hub. Weight from 170 grammes. Available in 20,24 and 28 holes. This hub is also made from alu 7075-T6 and like the light weight crankset it's build with the FEM method. The axle is 15 mm in diameter and has quadruple bearings.

Excellent to combine with our M5 front hub (left picture below)


  • Standard edition: 196 gram
  • Available with 20, 24, 28, 32 and 36 holes.
  • Black anodised 7075-T6 aluminium
  • Assembling width: 130 or 135 mm
  • Flange width: 52 mm
  • Flange diameter right: 52 mm, left: 32 mm
  • The axle is 15 mm diameter and 4x bearing
  • Shimano or Campagnolo body
  • Rotor: Shimano- or Campagnolo fit
  • Lasered logo
  • No body weight limitation


While designing the new M5 196 grammes rear hub we had the following considerations:

Stresses
  • Continuous pedalforce of 500 Newton
  • Mass of 100 kg (980 N)
  • Static initial tensions (1400 N / 1100 N)


Further technical data
  • Spoke pattern large flange: 2 times cross
  • Spoke pattern small flange: radial
  • Life span of 100.000 km. In case of a 28 inch wheel with a circumference of 2.1 meters this is equal to 47,600,000 revolitions.
  • Stress Ratio (Min. Stress / Max. Stress) is bigger than 0.5.
  • Based on this life span and Stress Ratio the maximal tensions may not exceed the 348 MPa .
