Race tested in 2010, the SL11 hub set provides high performance with fewer spokes and less weight.
The silver SL11 weighs only 90g and the spoke count was reduced from 20 to 16 in the front while the rear hub counts 20 spokes. Both axles are 15mm for a stiffer wheel set and with 6 pawls (other companies use 3 or 4 pawls) in the free hub body, we reduced the engagement from 10 degree to just 7.5 degree. Much faster engagement than any other brand on the market!
We’ve reduced 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 bearing pre-load unnecessary and by using a high quality AL7075 we ensure that Hawk Racing hubs are unique and high performing in the word of cycling.
