Our history and reputation as a leader in cycling heads off road with Mavic’s gravel hubs.Ready for the most extreme conditions and terrain, these hubs are designed to help you find your limits and go beyond. Whether you encounter the thickest mud or endless washboards, their robust construction and exceptional durability laugh in the face of disruption.
Mavic engineers have dreamt up hubs that combine the best materials available with the most advanced production methods to guarantee maximum strength and smoothness, without compromising on weight..
Precision bearings and infallible seals, among Mavic's other patented technologies, ensure incomparable pedaling performance and wide compatibility. That means you can concentrate on exploring new roads and what lies beyond them. Mavic gravel hubs will get you there.
Gravel bike hubs are designed to combine road performance with the ability to withstand the harsh conditions of unpaved surfaces. Frequently asked questions involve compatibility with different braking systems, drivetrains and axle widths and spacing; bearing types; durability; the ability to accommodate wider spoke widths; and the difference with conventional road or MTB hubs.
What are the advantages of gravel hubs compared with conventional road hubs?
Gravel hubs offer greater versatility, suitable for both rough terrain and smooth surfaces. With stronger bearings, better sealing and a design that allows for wider spokes, they offer superior resistance to impacts and the elements, while maintaining high performance on the road.
How does the axle used with a gravel bike hub affect stability and compatibility?
Axle width and thickness affect the rigidity of the wheel, which impacts stability and handling. Thru-axles, which are thicker than traditional quick-release skewers, have therefore become more common in gravel riding. Axle width and thickness, otherwise referred to as spacing, must be compatible between hub and frame/fork, therefore it's crucial to check for compatibility. The current most common spacing is 12x100mm (front) and 12x142mm (rear).
Are gravel hubs compatible with all drivetrains?
A bicycle hub utilizes a component called a driver body for compatibility with the cassette. While modern hubs are designed for compatibility with a wide range of drivetrains and cassette speeds, different driver bodies are often required to create the appropriate match. Be sure to select a hub with the correct driver body for your drivetrain make, model and cassette speed.
