New 7 Speed Hub from Atomlab
Dedicated 7 Speed
Atomlab is stoked to announce the addition of the DHR 7spd hub. The shorter freehub body allows the drive side flange to be wider spaced from the non-drive flange; as a result, a stronger wheel with more symmetrical spoke angles can be built. This increased triangulation of the spokes increases stiffness, especially important when using a larger wheel than 26″.
The 7 speeds of the DHR hub can typically be covered with a two tooth jump between each sprocket. The DHR hub offers an even shift between gears when using a 10 speed 11-34t cassette for a 11 – 13 – 15 – 17 – 19 – 21 – 23 spread. 11-24 and 11-25 spreads are also possible. Installation is a breeze. Simply remove the three largest cogs (fixed to a spider) from a 10 speed cassette, slide the remaining seven cogs on the freehub, torque the lock ring, limit your 10 speed derailleur, and go shred!
