GW has been hard at work on creating a new, mountain bike specific hub that is strong enough to handle the requirements of the most demanding riders.
The M-Max series of hubs is made up of the M17-3 and M17-5 hub shells built around an oversized 17x12mm axle. By increasing the diameter of the rear axle, we were able to significantly stiffen and strengthen the hub.
The M-Max hubs are equipped with a full set of high-quality cartridge bearings to ensure smooth spinning with minimal maintenance requirements. To make servicing easier, these hubs are equipped with end caps that can be removed without tools.
