What’s special about KRU Hubs?

One of the key technological advancements we have introduced is the KRU wheel hub. In fact, there aren’t many companies nowadays doing innovation on the hubs. In practice, many wheels on the market today are little more than a selection of existing products put together and a sticker applied.

Our approach for making high quality carbon wheels has been radically different. We’ve literally designed our products from the ground up, including the hubs.

KRU Hub mounted on a wheel

KRU hubs, entirely engineered by KRU, offer performance comparable to hubs with ceramic bearings while on the other hand maintaining exceptional durability at an affordable price point.

The technology is supported by Enhanced Bearings Performance, a patented revolutionary hub design & assembly, and Self Adjusting Spokes, a clever design which allows spokes to perfectly align from the hub flange to the rim.

Enhanced Bearings Performance (EBP)

Enhanced Bearings Performance EBP Technology KRU

Enhanced Bearings Performance is a completely reingeneered hub design & assembly. Main benefits include:

  • Hubs unaffected by over-tightening of the quick release, actually rolls faster
  • No maintenance required for 200.000 km
  • Low friction and rolling resistance

Self Adjusting Spokes (SAS)

Self Adjusting Spokes – SAS Technology

The Self Adjusting Spokes technology allows spokes to perfectly align from the hub flange to the rim to obtain the following benefits:

  • The wheel supports higher tension
  • Higher wheel performance in terms of stiffness and stability
  • Greater durability of the spokes
