Fat Bike RHUB

If you’ve been waiting for a thru axle rear hub to match your Paul FHUB, now is your chance. According to Paul Components, the 12 x 197 thru axle compatible RHUB was only made in limited numbers and after passing them out to friends and family, the remainder of the first batch are now up for sale on the Paul site. As usual, the hubs are made in Chico, California and are built to be easily serviceable while durable enough to endure the worst conditions. With the introduction of the Thru axle RHUB, you can finally have a complete Paul hubset for your modern fat bike…


Starting with a 6061 aluminum hub shell, RHUBs are only available with a 32 hole drilling and 12mm axle standard. Also, while they use an Industry Nine ratchet the hubs are currently only offered with a SRAM XD driver. Built with a 7075 aluminum axle, the hubs spin on Enduro bearings which have been given an extra grease fill to make sure the bearings will hold up to extra sloppy conditions. RHUBS will sell for $349 in black or silver anodizing and have a claimed weight of 408g.

Unrelated to fat bikes, Paul components is kicking off a new video series with a clip that highlights all of their parts that can be used for a Commuter.

That is the radest an at the same time ugliest commuter I’ve even seen. Kind of perfect, actually!
