Probably old news but I found it on the 2014 WTP Crysis complete. Just Salt brand, kinda generic I guess. I wonder what internals it uses and hub shell, etc. If it's their own design, then it's probably not generic, haha.

meh, i think its probably a clone, doubt they would design a proprietary coaster for a 600 dollar complete

My homie Timm from Germany rides for Salt Plus and rides a freecoaster. I can't verify this is the hub that he rides but, if it is, I'd imagine it's pretty good...

I saw that , and I almost considered buying a Crysis complete ! Freecoaster , camo , quality.....sick bike ! Hopefully this is a good , affordable freecoaster , so kids like me can experiement without busting 250$ on a complete back wheel !

Looks like an Ezra clone if anything. It might not have the conversion shit though, the clutch might be built in and the driver be made to coast only. Basically a FC only ezra clone. Salt doesn't seem like a company to drop a whole new coaster.

^ Tim is pretty much spot on... Whilst not labelled an EZRA Clone because what company is going to say they are using anothers design. However.... It is labelled a Cassette/Coaster which would lead pretty much anyone who knows anything about Freecoasters to... That it is in fact EZRA styled Internals. Also, If You're checking out The Salt Coaster, You guys should probably take a look at the Wethepeople Helix "Whiskey Barrel" Freecoaster wink

Nah, just 600 on a complete tongue

But seriously, the BEST thing I can suggest is if you are at all interested in freecoasters, get a hub that is both (the new kink thing, Ezra etc) so if youy dislike coasters, boom you have a cassette.

well . I ride the Trapez Freecoaster (SaltPlus) since 1 year and 5 months almost every day ...
I had to replace the axle tho ... Its superb , no busted bearings ...runs smooth
BUT !!!
The axle is not heat treated it will bend if you hang up on grinds ,and this very fast .....
sad

PS : after 18 months or maybe now 19 almost ,the axle of the Trapez Freecoaster broke at the peg . Well I did some dayli grinding the whole year tho...
But the Replace axle is super affordable ;and comes with all other internal parts ; if I am not wrong this replacement saltplus package even comes with a driver .
So I guess its still a super hub.
