How to: Hub guards

 

This article has been created to help you with picking of the right BMX hub guard. There are tons of different companies making hubs as well as hub guards and that's why we would like you to be a part of this too.

If you own any hub guard that is from a different manufacturer than your hub yet still works well together, please let us know via our discussion forum or one of the communication channels. Let's try to create the list of compatible / hub + guard / combinations that will later provide you with the valuable information and saves a lot of time. If you have some spare time or feel like being creative, you can write a review on your hub guards and let us know about your opinion.

 

 

REAR BMX HUB GUARD

Hub guard protects the hub's body, spokes or driver againts the damage caused by grinding. All hub guards are divided into a couple of groups depending on - the type of use - / Front: male, female, Rear: male, female, drive side, non-drive side /, and material - / Plastic, Metal /.


REAR NON-DRIVE SIDE HUB GUARD THAT SLIDES ONTO THE AXLE

Slides onto the axle with no need to remove the hub's cone. It is compatible with most of the hubs with regular 14mm axle. The only problem of this type of HG is that it increases the hub's width and in most cases you will have to spread the frame's dropouts to fit the wheel in.

Compatible hubs: All of the hubs with 14mm regular axle
