Have you ever wondered what’s inside one of those Profile Racing Z-Coaster hubs?
If you have been thinking about picking up a new freecoaster hub and you’re looking at the the Z-Coaster hub from Profile Racing, but you are curious about what’s inside and makes the hub tick, here’s your answer. This weeks Tech Tip from Profile gives you a look at all of the parts inside the hubs from the proprietary Z-Coaster driver that allows you to run the hub as a freecoaster or a traditional cassette to the 14mm nuts that hold it in place. You can check out all the parts and a full diagram that breaks down each of the parts for your understanding. You can check it all out on the PROFILE RACING WEBSITE HERE.
This hub is fairly complex and there are a number of little parts, but from the reviews we have been hearing, there isn’t a ton of maintenance involved and there’s not much of a reason to be opening up the hub anyway! Pretty interesting!
