I like the idea of instant engagement in my hub but ive heard mix thoughts on that.
I ride a lot of street and park and heard that a hub with instant engagement with through you right off your bike when you land backwards while others say its fine.
Ive been looking for a new hub to get and i like the profile mini or premium stinger for the quick engagement but maybe i would rather get a g-sport ratchet

idk what to get as of now just wanted to hear other peoples ideas

i was thinking profile but i run 4 pegs and do a lot of abusive grinding. Heard profiles more of a race hub and not built for that while the g-sport is built like a tank

The Ratchet is the way to go. 14mm female axle bolts sure can't go wrong. And plus, some people have had really bad experiences with the Stinger blowing out and all or suddenly becoming quiet and then loud again.

I used to ride 4 pegs and be pretty heavy and that I've broke a Ratchet(I broke the ratchet when i was pegless), Proper and an Eclat Teck. I'm pegless now and a Primo Mix/Cult Match it probably the best bet for you. I had a mix and I wish I never got rid of it, best hub ever.

Or just buy the Cult hub as its basically a Mix with a different name ..

That's what I was getting at, apparently the Mix is hard to come by nowadays.

Yeah they are. i was lucky to get one and its beautiful. quick engagement. needle bearing in the driver. strong internals. but yeah stay away from the profile if you grind. its good for park and people who love l oud hubs because they think its better that way. so get a match, or a primo if you can find one. and if you have enough get the bloody Ratchet.

As for instant engagement, it will only throw you off if you cant fakie for crap or if you have been riding a supper loose chain or a freecoaster
