it is between this or a profile hub. now i know profile is a trusted name from what you guys have posted on here, but i like to try new things or take the road less traveled by others...so any feed back on these?

There's probably a reason for why I've never seen a pair of those in my life.

No. Profile's warranty guys are terrible, and their hubs are overpriced. I'd just get an Odyssey hub.

Profile, then Primo then Odyssey Hubs...

I like the Shadows hubs, but there not for racing...neither are the Primos..for that matter



So i think the real battle is between Odyssey Race hubs and Profile hubs...

profiles not as good as people say. i ran one for a week. it's not smoother, and it's heavier than my odyssey. the flanges bend pretty easy too
