The other day we posted up the Kink 2015 Parts Collection catalog up on the site that gave us a good look at their full range of frames and parts that Kink have released worldwide this month. Inside, we caught a look at a few items that really caught our eye, including the new Yukon cassette hub. We were curious to find out just what made up this cassette hub, so we got in touch with the guys over in New York and got all the specs and details. Check out more photos and info on the Yukon cassette hub, Nylon hub guard and complete wheel that it is also available in after the jump!
Just when you don’t think this day will get all too interesting.. Demolition dropped this banger of a video featuring Rob Wise absolutely CRUSHING skateparks and street spots to promote the complete wheels that Demolition offers. Needless to say… This is a MUST SEE video!
“Don’t ever sleep on Rob Wise, he’ll always come through with the most insane move and all while making it look way too easy. He put this wheel promo together with Mastroni throughout a few trips and came through with a solid Rotator/ Bulimia wheelset promo.
If they’re good enough for Rob, they’re good enough for you! Check out the wheels at the links below:

There’s no doubt that the freecoaster world has blown up huge these past few years and a number of brands have offered their own take on this popular hub working with the proven KHE internals. Colony introduced their Clone freecoaster a little while back now that features a CNC machined alumninum hub shell that was designed with a slimmer design to help reduce weight and a laser etched logo. As we said before, inside you can find a 14mm hollow chromoly axle and the popular KHE internals that a number of other hubs also use because, simply put, it gets the job done. The driver has an angular contact bearing for additional load support and they have included 3 slack washers to all you to get your hub set just the way you like it. The Clone freecoaster is available in colors of Rainbow and black, 36-hole only, right or left side drive with a 9-tooth driver and a weight of 1.26 lbs. (20.28 oz. / 575 grams).
Check out the black version along with an instructional video giving you a look at how to adjust the slack on this hub! below.
