Bitex RAR12 Rear Rim Brake Hubs

  • These are a mainstay hub for our custom rim brake builds - light, reliable, inexpensive - you can have all three!
  • Quality control and hub assembly performed by XLR8 (in our workshop in Northern NSW).
  • Taiwan made sealed bearing hub for Road, MTB, Gravel and CX - using an appropriate rim.
  • ABEC5 grade sealed bearings from TPI (not the Chinese bearings that most online sellers supply with these hubs).
  • 6 pawl freehub is super robust, and very low friction. 48 points of engagement.

We can supply rims and build wheels with these hubs for you, or upgrade bearings to NTN Japanese. Just get in touch.

Hubs options listed as "special order" or "Sold Out" will be ordered immediately upon your purchase and supplied ASAP. Get in touch if you have Qs.

Recommended usage: Rim brake rear wheels where a lightweight economy hub is required.
