After the success of our SF30 hub set, we have decided to introduce a new hub set for the 2011 season. Race tested in 2010, the SL11 hub set provides the same high performance as our SF30 hub set but with fewer spokes and less weight.
To reduce the weight of the wheel set, the front hub is 23g lighter than our SF30 front hub and weighs only 90g. In addition, the spoke count was reduced from 20 to 16 in the front. The rear hub counts 20 spokes and the shape of the new hub set is a but different from our 2010 model.
Both axles are 15mm for a stiffer wheel set and with 6 pawls (othe companies use 3 or 4 pawls) in the free hub body, we reduced the engagement from 10 degree to just 7.5 degree. So much faster engagement than any other brand on the market.
We\'ve reduce friction by using Folmer Technology bearings that come standard with Hawk Racing wheels. Made in Japan, those ABEC 3 bearings are rated up to 30.000 RPM. The award winning bearing technology makes the use of ceramic bearings needless.
This great design makes also bearing pre-load unnessessary and by using a high great AL7075 we ensured that Hawk Racing hubs are unique and high performing in the word of cycling.
