New Product Discovery: Spank Industries HEX Drive Hub

Spank Industries HEX Drive Hub

Product release

The new HEX DRIVE Hub from SPANK Industries delivers riders all the features they’ve been asking for: high engagement, lightweight,  enhanced seals for riding in lousy conditions, oversize bearings for durability, plus it’s all easy to service. Not only that, it comes in at a killer price point. In fact, HEX DRIVE just might be the best hub for the money, with rear hubs coming in at $199 and the front listing for $99 MSRP.

HEX is competitive with hubs costing twice, as much with weights starting 147g for front hubs and rear hubs starting at 300g.

Two mountain setups are available for riders to choose from: 28H Straightpull Boost (ideal for Enduro and Trail), 32H J-hook Boost & non-Boost (perfect for DH, Freeride, All Mountain and Trail).  A Gravel-specific 28H J-Hook is also available.

Available with HG, XD and Microspline alloy freehubs, SPANK has also announced an e-bike dedicated steel freehub across all three platforms to pair with the HEX Drive Hub.
