Not that long ago, Race Face introduced their Vault hub technology in a J-Bend hub shell. That allowed you to build your own wheels with their Vault hub technology while sticking with j-bend spokes for serviceability. Now they’ve added another option to the mix – something a little more colorful.

Yes, the same Vault j-bend hubs are now available in five different colors with the addition of blue, orange, purple, and silver.

The hubs still feature the same oversized hub shell for increased stiffness with a wider bearing stance and burly 6902 bearings. The 60 tooth drive ring engages with 6 pawls for  120 points and 3° of engagement.

The hubs are available in Boost spacing only, and only in 32h configurations at the moment – though black hubs are available in 32 or 28h. The colored hubs will sell for the same price as the black versions, with the front selling for $174.99 and the rear for $324.99.
