The Canadian brand's hubs rival DT Swiss 240s in weight, and cost $300 less


OneUp Components has launched its first ever wheel hubs. They will be available in a choice of seven anodised colours, and the brand claims they have “the best combination of performance, durability and price.” They use a 7075 aluminium body and weigh 142g for the front and 220g for the rear. They’re pretty competitive on price, too costing £314.97 for the set. They’re up against some stiff competition from the likes of DT Swiss and Hope, but they could be a decent contender if they work as well as they look.

At just 362g for the full set, the OneUp Hubs are up there with some of the best sellers

OneUp has decided to join the hub party and make their own, and we reckon they might become pretty popular. Not least because there are seven colours to choose from, but because they’re pretty lightweight and don’t cost an absolute fortune. They use a fully machined 7075 aluminium body with an integrated drive ring, and EnduroTM ABEC 5 fully sealed cartridge bearings. OneUp says they’re ‘standard sizes’ so that you can easily replace them without needing specialist sized replacements.

How OneUp’s Hubs compare to some of the most popular options

The brand has also focused on the engagement aspect, with a 44T ratchet which they say strikes the “best balance between performance and value with improved reliability.” The hub flange spacing has been optimised to improve the stiffness and strength of the wheels built around the hubs, and they are compatible with J-bend spokes only. They’ve also laser etched the build specs with stuff like PCD and Flange Distance onto the hub body to make it easier for wheel builders to reference. And, freehubs are sold separately.

It sounds like they will be simple enough to work on – with replacement parts including freehubs, bearings, seals and ratchets all available from OneUp. The hubs are available with worldwide delivery from OneUp’s website, and will cost £314.97 for a full set, £84.99 for the front hub, £185.99 for the rear hub, and £43.99 for the freehub.
