Those are a pretty cool detail. When you install a freehub most hubs you have a bit of a fight to get the pawls to all to engage enough to drop into the drive ring. Those small notches allow the pawls to drop down just enough to engage and helps the freehub drop in with ease. 

SMRT manufacturing!!

If there is something we do not show in our stock product list, we would be more than happy to source it and supply you with what you are after. Any custom build can be quoted and shipped with any color or hub choice we can get our hands on. 

Best bet is to email and have us look into it for you. We can supply a solid timeline and price that way.

You are spot on Eric. The weight drop is the significant gain, but the difference in strength form the CX-Ray to the Race is so close, when you talk about force to break when elongated. Building up wheels, you do also have the ability to eliminate spoke wind up as well. With that kind of precise adjustability, you can build a crazy tight tolerance wheel, both radially and laterally.

Sorry Jason, I missed this one. 

The Outlier is built for DH and will outperform The Agent.  Massive in terms of kg/f to break the rim is 17% increase. The lateral stiffness increases 13% and the radial stiffness only 10%. 

If you are prone to rim breaks and run low pressures and do not want to succeed any of the added grip that comes with the lower pressures, You could be a good candidate for an insert.

For sure. Running an insert on any of our rims is possible. We are really partial to the Huck Norris as it is simple to install, light and does improve impact resistance just as much as the others. It is a simple system that when needed works to decrease rim strikes. If you want to run it on The Agent, we say giver!

It is such a great hub. We were blown away by the performance of the product and the quality of the machining. Not holding back anything, we are still carrying P321 and support that hub full on. It is on our sales site, as it was a repeat. We are just cleaning up the images and will add it to the main site as well.

The magnetic pawls on the quiet version needed some addressing and they have resolved them by moving the magnets a hair closer to the drive-ring and bringing all the EDM work in-house. They had some issues with a vendor that supplied the machining and have now solved it. 

Great hub and still 100% backed and sold by us.

Tim, we do receive the rims back from our team guys, and both looked like massive rim impacts. They both cracked the rim lip. But he still rode the wheel for a week in the park after the break. So the tubeless held and he was able to continue to ride until we shipped him his new one. This was the case on both occasions.

Under investigation with our team rider, it was low tire pressure and riding a 130mm AM bike like it were a DH bike in the WBP that we chalked the cracks up to. We put him on a production rim, not a team VD, and he has been fine ever since.

@slyfink, The issue we found was the drilling holes were too tight a tolerance and the angle for boost was a tad off. We noticed this in pre-production and made adjustments to make the holes a hair larger and increased the angle of the hole to make the spoke to nipple engagement much nicer.

That is odd. We have not had 1 customer from Squamish crack any rim at all. I have a team rider in Squamish who cracked 2 rims up riding the WBP while riding his Norco Sight, (our team riders all ride our visually defective rims that do not make the grade for sale) but other than that no cracked rims at all out of Squamish from any paying customers.
