Low Drag

Velotechnic DS1 - A fine example of our low drag hub spinning over 1 minute and they are not even break-in yet!

To reduce the overall cost, we opt out of ceramic bearings in our default set up, at the same time the DS1 spins smoother and longer than many others installed with ceramic bearings.

"Our signature magnetic pawls drive creates one of the lowest drag with near immediate engagement. We always explained that "ceramic bearings are not necessary" because most of the drag originated from the drive mechanism and not the bearings."
