Paul RHUB 170 Fatbike Hub

I just saw that Paul has teamed up with Industry-9 to produce a new 170mm fatbike hub.

It combines Paul’s easily serviceable bearing design with I9’s mountain bike drive system. 6 pawls for engagement with only 3 degrees of rotation…or user serviceable to pull 3 pawls for a lighter, quieter hub with 6 degrees of rotation before engagement.

Pretty sweet.

Advertised weight is 427 grams, which compares favorably with Salsa at 450 for their Mukluk 2 hub. The Paul design may be more easily serviced, as well.

Details on Paul’s site.
