The CyberFront SP-X is Extralite's latest iteration of their incredibly lightweight front road hub. This straight pull hub features some minor, yet important, changes from Extralite's standard SP hub. The spoke flanges of the SP-X are fully external with tangential spoke holes, orienting the spokes in a cross-laced pattern. While reducing the hub weight by a few precious grams, this flange design also adds strength and lateral stiffness, and makes the process of lacing the wheel much easier. High quality ABEC 5 steel cartridge bearings spin on a stiff oversized 14mm axle, fitted with Extralite's signature Micro-tuner bearing preload system. As a final touch, the axle end caps are hard anodized in an attempt to withstand wear from your bike’s dropouts. For the gram-conscious cyclist, this is the absolute best choice in a front hub.
The CyperFront SP-X is available in 20 hole configuration only to fit standard 100mm wide quick release dropouts. To calculate spoke lengths, see Extralite's spoke length table.
Due to the lightweight construction of Extralite hubs, it is recommended that service and inspection be performed at frequent intervals to ensure proper function and the longest possible wear life of the internal components. Detailed service instructions can be found here.
