Founded in 1981, Bitex manufactures a wide range of bicycle hubs. The Bitex’s one piece hub concept maximizes the strength, durability and performance of the hub while lowering its weight. By forming the hub from a one piece cylindrical aluminum alloy tube, there is more uniform and much higher strength and stiffness throughout the hub body.

Bitex One Piece Hubs

Founded in 1981, Bitex manufactures a wide range of bicycle hubs. The Bitex’s one piece hub concept maximizes the strength, durability and performance of the hub while lowering its weight. By forming the hub from a one piece cylindrical aluminum alloy tube, there is more uniform and much higher strength and stiffness throughout the hub body.

This translates to a lighter, more durable hub with higher performance capabilities than the more complicated and heavier one piece hubs made from alloy bar. All Bitex hubs feature special removable, flanged hub-cups (bearing races).

They are flanged so they seat perfectly in the hub shell – assuring hub balance and smooth rolling performance, and  removable for easier and faster assembly, disassembly and servicing. Bitex claims that a one piece hub design is much more durable.
