Zipps new ZM2 hubs
The new hub was designed in Germany and boasts an amazing 12 paws. They operate in four groups of three paws each, which in combination with the 33-toothed ring gear yields 132 points of engagement. This corresponds to a very fast lifting angle of 2.7 degrees, compared to 6.9 degrees in the outgoing hub ZM1. The inclusion of three paws at once is enough for Zipp to recommend hubs for the use of ebike. The hubs are also claimed to have an improved seal design for greater durability.
Hubs are available on their own for $ 190 (front) / $ 360 (rear).
