This is the first time that NEXTIE developes and produces bicycle hubs. NEXTIE has been committed to promoting the development of the bicycle industry. While we are making carbon fiber bicycle rims one of the best in the bicycle industry, we realized that the performance of bicycle wheels does not only depend on the rim itself, but also the core component of the wheelset, the hub. plays an extremely important role. The price of the high-end hubs we know so far has gone up, and the quality of the low-end hubs is not very reliable. So we decided to develop this core component ourselves to meet the market's demand for high-quality and affordable hubs, so our Rollingstar hubs came into being.
The Rollingstar is designed to build durable and reliable hubs. After nearly half a year of quality inspection over various hubs, research on the performance of materials used in various hub components, forward-looking analysis to improve riding experience, and countless repeated performance tests on the Rollingstar hubs, we finally completed this satisfying work. The Rollingstar hub shell, axle and freehub are all made of AL7075 aluminum alloy materials, the hub roll bearing adopts the reliable TPI 6802 and 6902 enduro types, and the ratchet inside adopts 40CrMo material which is of excellent hardenability and toughness, to ensure the precision and long-lasting strength of the hub. In terms of the dimension of Rollingstar, we have designed a larger flange diameter and wider flanges distance, so that the offset angles of the spokes would be larger, and the overall stability of the wheelset is higher, which could meet the needs of higher-intensity mountain ridings.
