SRAM Announces the X0 DH Hubs

SRAM X0 DH HUBS – STOP AT NOTHING

The new SRAM X0 DH hubs are built around strength and durability. Our 52 point ratchet design gives you quick and reliable engagement. The X0 hubs are built with precision machined bearings giving you lower resistance, faster revolutions and no wasted time on drag. The hubs are also convertible to different axle types with removable end caps. From pawl tooth to spoke flanges, we took the extra time on the X0 DH hub so you won’t have to.

Grams Thoughts => These look like a primo set of hubs, with multiple features and functions. They have a high point of engagement, easy to use end cap adapters for any axle size, XD driver body, precision bearings for low drag movement and  12×150 and 12×157 spacing options. The rugged hubs retail for $375-380 for the rear and $197 for the front.

  • DOUBLE TIME
  • XD DRIVER BODY
  • SIDE SWAP SYMMETRICAL
  • SEEKER

DOUBLE TIME

This straight-aligned, 4-pawl design turns the 26-tooth ratchet ring into 52 points of contact. The result: smooth 6.9º engagement without reducing tooth size or offsetting internal geometry—which means serious long-term durability.

SPEEDBALL

The only adjustment they’ll ever need was made back at the factory. Every part of the ball bearing is built together—which means that each bearing bore can be precision machined to fit the bearing race exactly. With tolerances this tight, the days of adjusting play after every ride are over.

SEEKER

Get unbent. 3D forged and machined for lightweight strength, the flanges are angled towards the rim—allowing the spokes to be fully in-line when tensioned. The result: reduced spoke head breakage and better overall durability.

XD DRIVER BODY

XD is a cassette driver body design that allows the use of a 10-tooth small cog and provides an improved interface with the cassette.

SIDE SWAP SYMMETRICAL

Switching axles has never been easier. Threadless side caps can be installed and replaced by hand—no tools necessary. SIDE SWAP SYMMETRICAL side caps refuse to take sides. The left side cap is identical to the right one. No need to figure out where each cap is going.
