White Industries H2 Hubs

5/5 (2 Reviews)
MSRP : $300.00

Product Description

White Industries’ newly designed H2 hubs are lightweight and designed specifically for road riding. They have been engineered with both function and performance in mind. The H2 hub featured a lightweight aluminum axle in the front hub and a thin walled steel axle in the rear hub. White Industries have also redesigned both the front and rear hubs shells to maximize aerodynamic efficiency. Even more unique to their products, they continue to utilize titanium as the preferred material choice for the free-hub body.

Strengths:    Bearings are smooth and the hub overall looks and feels well made. Rear hub is noisy but it is not annoying, I actually like it (less loud than CK). I'm not into the 'name game'; stuff just gotta work and the WI stuff works and holds up well. I will use WI again without reservation.

Weaknesses:    Nothing yet.

Bottom Line:   
I love the retro look of the chrome- had them built up with CX-Rays and Velocity Aerohead rims as a light everyday use wheelset, 24/28 2x. So far, no issues and the hubs spin as smooth as day one. I was torn between them and CK or DTSwiss, and as they were less expensive and have a good rep, thought I would try them. So far I'm very pleased with them.

Strengths:    Great look, aero, light weight, fast rolling with minimal friction with ceramic bearings

Weaknesses:    Cost is not the cheapest, and don't have the snob appeal of DT-Swiss,etc. but I think they are as good as any hub available.

Bottom Line:   
I have H2 hubs built up on Lew Pro VT-1 rims with Sapim CX-Ray spokes and Enduro ceramic bearing upgrade. These are superlight and fast wheels with a very nice sound and roll. They look awesome and they are easily as good as any wheelset I have ever owned. The hubs have not given me any problems in 6 mos. and have been maintenance free.
