Rear hub is 35 USD cheaper and the set is 55 USD cheaper. Same quality of bearing, better sealing, more user-serviceable (drive ring), and excellent performance with the same engagement. What do you think would be a fair price vs. I9? The Torch hub I’ve been running on various SS bikes for a few years has been faultless other than needing bearings and I like that it’s North American made but I don’t see the Vault as a bad value comparatively. I’ve never used the 1st-gen Turbine dropper post everyone hates (9point8 model) but I’ve had great experiences with all the Race Face products I’ve tested and ridden in recent memory - including getting small parts: Atlas, Turbine, and Aeffect Cinch cranks. Aeffect dropper post. Aeffect wheels. Vault hubs. Chester bar + stem (yeah, it’s a bar and stem so mixed feelings on listing them).
