BMX Hub Guards provide some extra protection
Are you tired of destroying your freestyle BMX hubs again and again? Then a hub guard can offer you some protection. They are made to protect your hub and spokes during grinds. Furthermore, the hub guard tends to give a smoother feeling during grinds.
BMX Hub Guards comes in both nylon and aluminum, and it is very individual what riders prefer. That being said a nylon hub guard will provide an easier grind than its aluminum sidekick.
When buying a hub guard, it is important to choose a model that fits your hubs. Some guards are specifically made for certain hubs, while other are made universal, so they fit most of the hubs on the market. It will be written in the product specifications if the hub guard is unique for a specific hub.
Obviously, a set of hub Guards don't offer 100 percent protection for your hub and spokes, but we recommend every Freestyle BMX rider to use them. The money you spend on hub guards is earned back the first time they “save” your hub.
