White Industires 11-speed hubs

New for 2013, White Industries has created the T11 hub. It’s a all new hub body design which looks a bit different from previous offerings, but it retains the same internals we’ve all come to love. The freehub body is titanium and compatible with the new 11-speed standard. Despite the freehub body being longer in length, they managed to keep the weight the same as previous models with a little extra machining. These hubs are backwards compatibable with 8/9/10 speed systems and will be offered in Shimano or Campy styles. Still made in the US, it’s clearly labeled with CNC machined labeling to show your national pride. They are set to come in the standard black and polished silver. (more…)

Whisky Parts Co. 2013 Preview @ Saddle Drive ’12

Monday, August 6th, 2012

tf-img_1939 Showcased at the front of the Whisky booth during Saddle Drive was the new no. 9 fork. The no. 9 is Whisky’s innovative new disc carbon road/cross fork that uses a shortened version of Rock Shox’s 15mm Maxle system. The new thru axle design will help stiffen up the fork and give riders more confidence in descents and during out-of-the-saddle standing efforts. The Maxle will also help reduce the stress on the fork caused by disc brakes. Whisky forks are built in a three part layup that is purpose built to offer stiffness and structure near the thru-axle, compliance and absorption in the center of the blades and an extra solid crown design for durability and added stiffness.
