Colony Swarm Freecoasters Now Available!

The long awaited Swarm Freecoaster hubs have landed in Australia and most parts of the world! We also have them available as a complete wheel built in with a Pintour rim or the option of the Contour rim.

The Colony Swarm Freecoaster Hub is our newest FC hub utilising the ground breaking planetary coaster internals from the guys at Freenight. It has the weight of a cassette, very minimal slack with an almost instant engagement when pedalling forwards.  Yet you have all the good properties of a FC hub when rolling backwards with no engagement or the need to back pedal.

We’ve also created a very detailed video showing the inner workings of the hub…

BEST OF 2021 VIDEO

2021 was another crazy year, starting off with some fun trips before parts of Australia were locked down yet again which really restricted us getting together as much as we would have liked.

We hope everyone has a great new year, thanks for the support as always.
