AVT, we consider it a privilege to offer you the ultimate quality of
this Phil Wood hub.
Phil Wood’s famous bearings make riding
this hub like gliding on air. Phil Wood hub shells are machined using CNC
(Computer Numeric Control) lathes so your hub arrives to you exactly the way
Phil intended it to be. Great care is taken every step of the way to make sure
your hub meets the extremely high standards that Phil Wood demands.
After the hub shell is crafted, The spoke holes are placed perpendicular to the
surface of the flanges. Then, a coining operation takes place. This
cold forging process compresses the metal around the spoke holes, forming an
ideal seat for the spoke heads. The front hub flanges are canted and have flange
separation that is optimized for 700c rims. Once the hub shell is heat
treated, precision machining of the interior of the hub is performed. Only after
checks and double checks is the Phil signature logo cold forged into the hub
shell. The bearings and axle are installed and checked, and a final polish
by hand completes Phil's meticulous manufacturing process.
The front hub flanges are
canted (angled toward the rim center) and have flange optimization for
both 700c and 27″ rims.
Match this front hub up with one of Phil's
rear road hubs for a hub set that you'll be proud to ride for years to come.
