Tune King Front Hub

A nicely made front hub from the Black Forest. Not super light at 115g but a really solid hub for the weight. Uses a 17mm axle and 6803 bearings. Machining and finish is immaculate.


I'll be using this new front hub for a DT Swiss Revolution / Podium MMX front wheel build. Finished weight should be around 565g. I've been really happy with my A2Z/Revs/Podium MMX front wheel , so this Tune version should be every bit as good.
