There has been some buzz about the new Free Night Planetary Freecoaster hub that is a new design that combines a freecoaster and a cassette hub into one hub so you can freecoast backward, but still get the same feel as a cassette when you’re pedaling forward without the slack and need to engage / disengage the hub. Brant Moore got his hands on one of the hubs to get an in-depth look at the hub and do some riding with it. Here’s a video where Brant disassembles the hub to give you an inside look at the hub. If you’re on the hunt for a new back hub and want to try something different, check this video out for a look at this guy.

“This hub could change BMX freecoaster hubs FOREVER!
The internals of the Planetary Freecoaster from Free Night are similar to hubs weve seen before, but have one giant difference; planetary gearing.
This allows the hub to be a cassette when moving forward, then immediately go into freecoaster mode with NO disengagement.
This is completely unlike and other freecoaster hub available.” – Brant Moore
