Race Face Introduces the Vault J-Bend Hub

Date Jan 18, 2018

Since the release of our durable, high engagement, straight pull Vault Hub on the Turbine R and Next R wheels, riders and dealers have been asking for an option to build their own wheels with Race Face Vault. With custom wheel options booming, and riders desiring reliable hub options, we set to work putting our 3-degree engagement, stiffer hub flanges and longer lasting bearings into a package for specialty builds. And what better way to showcase the new Vault J-bend hub than with a bomber wheel build for Wade Simmons by master wheelbuilder Dave McInnes of The Bicycle Hub in North Vancouver!

With the same key features as our straight pull Vault hubs on Turbine R and Next R, the Vault J-Bend hub brings high 3 degree engagement for quick action from pedal to hub, stiffer flanges for better power transfer, larger bearings and improved labyrinth seals for increased durability and tool-free end-caps and cassette bodies to allow for easy hub configuration changes – now with a traditional J-Bend spoke option!
