Spank HEX J-TYPE Boost E-Plus Rear HubSpecifically developed for electric mountain bike (MTB) riding, this Boost spaced rear hub provides smooth and reliable performance for a wide range from riding disciplines from all mountain (AM), to enduro and downhill (DH) racing. It features a durable alloy hub body that’s been put through a CNC optimising and forging process, which shaves off any unnecessary material while still maintaining maximum strength. As a result, it provides a fantastic balance of toughness and strength, without any weight penalty. Spank has also equipped this E-bike-specific version with a steel axle to handle the increased speed, torque and power that’s produced by electric bike motors. To top it off, the brand gave it a matte anodised finish for extra protection against corrosion during wetter riding conditions, while its laser logos give it a sleek look that complements your ride.Boost Spacing and 6-bolt Disc Brake ReadyEngineered for the demands of today’s riders, this rear hub comes kitted out with boost spacing to match perfectly with 12x148mm compatible modern E-MTB frames. This allows it to provide stiff and dependable performance as you carve your way around the mountain.
