It's not actually a "flatland" hub.

Just to reduce weight.

That's fine. 17 oz is just not "super light" to most flatlanders. FEC Ti hub is under 11 oz. That is  super light.

thats what i thought,then i thought that the extra length that the spokes need make the overall weight more or less the same..!

Much more weight in the extra aluminum then in a few cm of spokes. Also the hub guard can be smaller and lighter.

I like the translucent lilac they are offering but I'd prefer this galactic purple but obviously can't get everything I want.
😃

I just realized they had already offered the 2020 Utopia in galactic purple, somehow I had missed that! Oh well.
