Profile Racing Coaster Hub (1)

If you follow BMX, then you know that freecoaster hubs are the new black. Unfortunately though, these hubs have a tendency to blow up, and it’s not unheard of for some of our riding friends to have to rebuild their hubs 2-3 times a year.

Enter Profile Racing. This company has a legendary reputation for solid cranks and hubs, and their new free coaster hub is hopefully no different. 

The hub was in development for over a year and uses a spring and pawl system. To disengage the hub and make it freecoast, you have to pedal backwards. Depending on how you internally adjust the hub, that could be a slight back pedal, a half turn, etc…

Profile Racing Coaster Hub (2)
One unique feature is that the hub is convertible. Should freecoasters slip in popularity, you can remove a spacer to make it function like a normal cassette hub. Retail is set at $320 and availability is set for Dec 1st.

Profile Racing New XD Driver

An XD Driver is now available for their range of MTB hubs. They retrofit on any existing MTB model and retail for $79.99.

Profile Racing New 11 Speed Hub (2)

On the road side, their hubs are now 11 speed compatible by simply installing or removing a spacer that sits on the freehub body.
