Cult Match freecoaster

After Cult pro Alex Kennedy started to toy with freecoaster riding in 2011, Cult's design team decided that they would need to manufacture their own freecoaster hub. But instead of going the usual route and throwing their logo onto an existing design, they devised ways to refine freecoaster issues. They used a needle roller bearing and sealed radial ball bearing for maximum strength, and an additional thrust bearing behind the clutch that uses needle bearings to reduce drag during back-pedaling. That means your freecoaster doesn't catch, and won't ghost pedal, which in turn means you get a better freecoaster. www.cultcrew.com
