The Federal wheel has been updated to incorporate our new Stance XL rim with the tried and tested male axle V3 freecoaster hub laced together with Primo spokes in a four cross configuration.
The Federal Stance XL rim has a wider (40mm) cross section that is designed to be in keeping with modern tyre sizes which helps the tyre maintain its correct profile. While the V3 freecoaster features a thrust bearing located behind the driver for a smoother operation. This new freecoaster is run by our Greek rider Jason, he swears by this hub and hasn’t had a problem with it since day one. If you need a strong reliable freecoaster this is the one for you.
The rim's triple box section combined with the wider profile makes the rim both stronger and stiffer than conventional rims and also helps to reduce the possibility of pinch flats. The wall thickness where the spokes are located has been increased by 22% to reduce the possibility of spokes pulling through the rim.
We have also changed the material from Aluminium 6061 to 6066 that increases the strength by approximately 30%. The rims have a lower sidewall height (15mm compared to 20mm on most other rims) to give the rim a lower/wider appearance. The internal sidewall height is also reduced to keep the tyre firmly in place when inflated and the base of the rim is sunken to ease the installation and removal of tyres.
