If you haven’t heard of Madera, these guys are a components brand owned and manufactured by Profile Racing, so you know these are going to be some quality parts. Established in 2005 Madera has always made quality, durable components.
The first thing you’ll notice about these hubs is how awesome they look. The ‘Celestial’ or ‘Galaxy’ colour scheme has really taken off in the last few months and Madera have stepped it up to the next level. Incorporating this theme onto their best components that really make them stand out from the rest, but these aren’t just for show.
These hubs are built using the best engineering techniques, as you’d expect from the same guys who make all the Profile Racing components. The rear hub uses a semi hollow 14mm male axle with an aluminium shell to reduce weight and keep the strength. The bearings are fully sealed and super smooth and the springs and pawls click louder than any other hub we’ve heard! The rear hub has a 9t CroMo driver as standard although you can switch to a Ti driver option later down the line if you prefer,..both are available in RHD &LHD. The flanges are different sizes, so you’ll most likely be using 184mm & 186mm spokes built up 3 cross if you decide to build them yourself.
The front hub has a 10mm female axle with an aluminium shell and uses the Volcano bolts to give it that clean look, although you might want to change these to a standard hex bolt if you fancy running pegs. The bearings on the front are also super smooth and ridiculously lightweight with the Madera logo cleanly etched onto the cone nuts sets these off a treat. These front hubs come with a good low flange with good support for the bend of the spokes.
Overall these hubs are nothing short of stunning and nothing comes close for looks. With a very limited supply these really are a unique set of hubs that will be capable of taking a beating from the heaviest of shredders, although a male front hub may be better suited in our opinion.
