ONYX Racing Products came about as a father's desire to provide his BMX racing son with a hubset that was faster engaging and smoother rolling than any other option on the market. Naturally, for BMX where starts are critically important as well as getting back on the gas after pumping, cornering, and jumping, lightning fast engagement makes a huge difference and those benefits carry over to the mountain bike side too. Whether you're pedaling out of a turn in a short track race to get a gap on your rivals, negotiating a technical climb, or simply want to coast without it sounding like a swarm of bees are chasing behind you, the MTB Rear Boost Hub from ONYX Racing Products is an excellent option with its patented sprag clutch rear hub transmitting pedaling power into forward momentum. These hubs are made in the USA and the shell is machined from 7075 aluminum for strength and durability. It, like all Onyx hubs, spins on high quality ceramic hybrid bearings, which are lighter, smoother, and last longer than its steel counterparts. They are constructed to very tight tolerances and Onyx gives you the ability to adjust the bearing preload with a threaded collar and titanium cinch bolt, preventing overly tight or loose hubs by allowing for adjustments while mounted in the dropouts. The star of the show is its sprag clutch mechanism for instant engagement under power and instant disengagement while coasting. As a bonus, the hubs feature quiet operation and no coasting drag so you can take in the scenery and enjoy shredding the singletrack in silent bliss. We also really appreciate that the hubs are easily disassembled and can be serviced by a home mechanic. This particular version has 32 holes, Boost spacing, 6-bolt rotor mounts, and is available with a heat-treated hardened stainless steel Shimano HG freehub or SRAM XD driver.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
