FH-M975/M970: Rear Hubs
The new XTR rear hubs offer improved performance any rider will appreciate. A quicker engaging freehub body, improved durability and increased rigidity are included in a disc & non-disc XTR rear hub:
• Titanium Freehub body:
Quicker engaging: With 36 engagement points, pawl engagement is 125% quicker than current XTR. The new freehub body has a 10° maximum engagement angle for the ultimate combination of low friction and quick acceleration.
• Improved seal design:
Based on Dura-Ace’s improved seal design & internal grease sleeve, durability is improved while service intervals are extended.
• 14mm axles:
The 7075-grade alloy axle improves rigidity by 40%. The new axle design also makes serviceability easier through the use of one cone wrench and a 5mm Allen wrench.
• Angular Contact Bearings:
A serviceable sealed bearing assembly that handles both vertical and lateral forces exerted by the wheel.
