BSD have released their new Revolution hub utilizing the Planetary internals from Free Night.
It looks like Free Night guys have begun licensing out their patented design on the Planetary Freecoaster hub they released earlier this year. BSD have released their new Revolution Hub utilizing the Planetary Clutch internals that make for a freecoaster that works like a cassette. This design has been something that multiple designers have tried to figure out for years (and failed at), and now it looks like it’s going to be widely available in BMX after this design fixed all the flaws in other designs. BSD is the first to produce their own hub with the design, and we would imagine we’ll be seeing others similar to how the KHE freecoaster internals are in damn near every freecoaster out right now. Either way, this is pretty awesome to see. Hit play for a quick promo video, then learn more about BSD’s hub down below!
“Introducing the new BSD Revolution hub…
A freecoaster hub that feels like a cassette hub, weighs the same as a cassette hub, has a pedal gap like a cassette hub and sounds like a cassette hub. Using the Planetary clutch system.
• 30% lighter than conventional freecoaster hubs.
• No gap when pedalling forward.
• Eradicates unwanted engagement on rollbacks.
• Feels and sounds like a cassette hub.
• No need for oversized hub bearings due to low axial load.
• Supertough hollow male 14mm chromo axle.
• BSD hubguards included.
