Before the BMX Worlds we mentioned a new French flatland brand and showed you a first spy pic of a stem. Now they revealed their name - Equilibre - as well as some details on another product. The Non Sense Hub is a freecoast with KHE technology inside. The inside female axle is 14mm and the bolts are 10mm. It's weighs 587g (= 1.29 lbs) and is a bit heavier than the KHE Greyhound freecoaster for example.

I'm lovin the finish on that hub. Making a female version of the KHE/St. Martin FC can possibly prove to be even better than the Greyhound, unless of course you're worried about a little extra weight.

how did they make a different if the internal is using KHE?


beside the outside of the hubshell, i guess there should be no different?

Dearest Innovation,

Should only work with a 14mm frame and 10mm pegs. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Female hub, with 10mm bolts.  The hub will work with 3/8" or 10mm dropouts.

it depends... There are 2 different female axles and they didn't specify what axle it has....



the greyhound flat axle (aluminum) is 110mm long with 10mm bolts (for 10mm dropouts and pegs)

and the greyhound street axle (cromoly) is 118mm long with 10mm bolts (for 14mm dropouts)



But being a flatland hub/company... I would suspect they used the flat axle....

On that freecoaster, that's the chromoly shemale axle ( = for 14 mm dropouts and 10mm pegs because there are 10 mm bolts even if that's exactly 3/8' and not 10mm),
Thierry, owner of Equilibre, confirmed me that
but we already have that information on the text and on the picture on the first post of that thread
