Proper's new freecoaster uses the same reliable interals (designed by KHE) that you would expect to find in other brands (Odyssey, Federal, Primo etc) with that attention to detail and custom touches that you'll have come to expect from Proper hubs.
One advantage of making BMX hubs for over a decade is that Proper have probably seen just about every potential problem over the years.
They wanted something more then a simple clone hub and therefore specced our own shell, cones, axle, and locknut and made sure the driver bearings are the most reliable version available. Also specced a male axle. We know other brands offer female axles but the feedback from our team was that these required more maintenance.
Anything other than a 17mm socket bolt (with 6mm broach) means carrying extra tools so we kept things simple and went with a standard bolt.
Most street riders run this style of freecoaster with the maximum amount of slack so this comes set up that way right out the box. There is washers in the box if you prefer less slack.
Matching guards are also available with the hub. Made from the super-tough new Ultramid nylon and replace the cone nuts so there is no need to spread your drop outs.
