540 Classic

A small but highly loyal group of riders around the world trusts in the mighty 540 hubs. Designed from the ground up for tandem and other heavy duty applications, it is the kind of dinosaur that survived for all the right reasons. Steel axles, rotor bodies and a stout aluminum hubshell rolling on oversized bearings complement the durability of our trademark Ratchet System freewheel system to create a hub that can go around the world.
