Primo now have stock of some limited edition Rasta spoked wheelsets. These feature Red/Green/Yellow pattern spokes laced to VS rims with N4FL front and Remix rear hubs. There are only a small number of these available so be sure to hit up your local Primo dealer if you are interested in grabbing a set.
I must say despite the whole Rasta thing being almost played to death, these would look incredibly good on all all Black bike…
Cult‘s Match Cassette Hub was on show at Interbike last year with a prototype female axle, but is now finally available. Expect to see these worldwide soon, sold in LHD or RHD, or laced up to a Match Rim as a complete Wheel.
Cinema have questionably the most dialled team in BMX right now, even more so after picking up Chad Kerley last month. The team have been testing a new Cassette hub for most of last year and putting it through it’s paces. The VX2 Cassette Hub is now available both as a Hub and also as a complete wheel laced up to Cinema’s very own 777 double walled welded Rim. The VX2 Hubs are all RHD and LHD compatible through a SDS (switch drive system) driver, and also feature angled flanges to prevent the stretch of the hub shell.
Material: 6061 aluminum hub shell
Axle: 14mm heat-treated chromoly axle with 8mm internal hex
Axle Nuts: 14mm threaded alloy nuts (14×1 thread pitch)
Non-Driveside Cone: Press-on alloy cone (x1)
Drive Side Cones: 24mm threaded steel nuts (x2)
Driver: 9-tooth chromoly, polymer bushing driver, switch drive system.
Flange Offset From Center: 26mm
Pitch Circle Diameter: 45mm
Bearing Code: 6902 (x2)
Spoke Holes: 36 holes
Weight: 16.35 oz
Available separately is a specific 7075 aluminum hub guard for the VX2 which pushes on to the non-drive side of the Hub to replace the cone nut. The push-on hardware is much better for hub guards as thread-on guards can deform the axle or even crush the bearings in the Hub.
Both the Hubs and Wheels are available now. Be sure to hit up Cinema for more info on the VX2 as well as their other products.
As spotted over on The Union-

For those of you looking for a larger ride, the guys at S&M have you sorted. The new 22 Inch specific Holmes Frame and 22″ Pitchfork are available now along with Revenge’s own 22″ Wheels and Tires, answering the call for a decent 22″ setup on the market. Real keen to see how different the extra 2 Inches work out, certainly and option for the taller riders out there. Interesting to see if any other brands follow suit with this new wheel size?
