HiTorque Road Front
The most reliable hub we know of, both uphill and downhill.The most reliable hub we know of, both uphill and downhill.
  The core of Syntace wheels are Syntace HiTorque hubs that are developed in-house and that are manufactured exclusively in Germany (int. pat. pend.). Finest milling and cutting art leads to a plain appearance, yet the hubs boast with superior inner values.

Tough body
The body is made from high-strength 7075 Aluminum. Combined with dimensions that have been approved on the most demanding test benches and designed with hub flanges that are specifically adapted to the spoke angle, the hub is made for eternity. As opposed to bike industry magazines and competitors, we also test the durability of our products and know how important it is for the product’s overall quality. We keep optimizing by following our mantra “Strong. Light. Smart”, in this very chronological order.

Optimized design
The stiffness and durability paired with such a lightweight design is the result of extremely lightweight oversize axles and intelligent bearing placements.

The hub body and the freehub body are built upon two double sealed precision grooved ball bearings with a special grease fill. This is how the hubs can be protected against corrosion o well and are as reliable as they apparently are.

MicroAdjust - what is bearing play to do with bearing durability?
After years of observation, we can tell that almost all bearing failures are a result of poorly tuned bearing play. The latest through axle designs - in case mechanics do not mind the risk - swage bearings and thereby harm them. The difference in tuning might be no more than a tenth of a millimeter, yet the result can be as much as a 900 kg horizontal load on the bearings. No bearing can stand this pressure that equals about ten times the weight of an average rider, particularly as bearings are not designed for horizontal but vertical stress.

Competitors try to solve the problem with extremely heavy axles or rubber dampers, yet this way, the pressure is not taken off the bearings. The MicroAdjust design, on the other side, allows for an easy tuning of the bearing play. This way, you are good to ride for years without further concerns.

As a side effect, we even solved the issue of bearing corrosion with our way of engineering hubs featuring the special grease fill.

Overview of the most important specifications:
  • Aeronautic certified high-strength 7075 Aluminum and super lightweight oversize axle for maximal stiffness and durability at a minimal weight.
  • MicroAdjust: continuously variable tuning of the lateral bearing play via Syntace end caps that lead to superior durability of the hubs.
