Podcast #042 – Industry Nine geeks out on hub design & evolution

Tips & Reviews

Get ready to geek out on how the bearing size, ratchets, pawls, and overall hub designs and spoke interfaces all impact your hub’s durability and overall wheel’s performance.

Our guest is Jacob McGahey, VP of Industry Nine, and with four generations of hubs to talk about, this is an in depth look at what they’ve learned about torque, longevity, materials, and so much more.

We also chat about the business side of things, their insane growth even before the pandemic, the current COVID supply chain situation, and how they’re still growing more than 50% annually!

Jacob’s a great guest, offering up all the details on their design and business, he’s also a shredder, routinely gapping way bigger jumps and crushing huge climbs much faster than me every time we ride together.
