Phil Wood’s famous bearings make riding this hub like gliding on air. Phil Wood hub shells are machined using CNC (Computer Numeric Control) lathes so your hub arrives to you exactly the way Phil intended it to be. Great care is taken every step of the way to make sure your hub meets the extremely high standards that Phil Wood demands.
After the hub shell is crafted, The spoke holes are placed perpendicular to the surface of the flanges. Then, a coining operation takes place. This cold forging process compresses the metal around the spoke holes, forming an ideal seat for the spoke heads. Once the hub shell is heat treated, precision machining of the interior of the hub is performed. Only after checks and double checks is the Phil signature logo cold forged into the hub shell. The bearings and axle are installed and checked, and a final polish by hand completes Phil's meticulous manufacturing process.
This rear hub features high & low flanges along with a 15mm QR axle. Phil's freehub body has 4 sets of pawls arranged in a double row that positively engage into a 20 tooth ratchet. Four Phil Spec’d™ PWX02 bearings provide you with durability and an amazingly smooth ride.
Match this rear hub up with one of Phil's front road hubs for a hub set that you'll be proud to ride for years to come.
