They've said it's an Axial Clutch (I.E KHE) I'm hoping to GOD They use the BTR Axle!!! I literally just emailed Shadow before X-Mas about doing something similar to what Kink are doing with their Cassette & adapt it to the BTR Hub. But it looks like Shadow already had something in the Works! The Raptor Coaster!

Just saw that , beat me to posting it.

It's basically a standard coaster (KHE internals) with Shadows signature style.

yeah, i mean i run a coaster, but am looking to trade for a cassette, but its retarded how weak and unreliable they are compared to a lot of other parts in bmx
at least with stuff like cranks, a lot of companies do a little something extra (6 sided spindle, aluminum arms, spindle gussetts) to their cranks at least, in stead of just making thunderbolt clones with a different logo, as it is with coasters
the only example of innovation that is currently in market is the needle roller bearings in the cult
tldr; fuck copypasta in bmx

The KHE Design is Crap... The Axial Engagement is just awful!.. The Bearings simply cannot take the loads put on them & if You are a big guy or hard on Your Pegs, You'll blow the Bearings eventually! I'm a great fan on the EZRA design, It works incredibly well! Disengages well, Re-Engages Super Quickly (I Run Medium Slack) From what I've gathered from a million & one Product Blogs, The Eclat is very similar to the EZRA design, You just cannot switch it out to a Cassette which get's rid of a couple of the EZRA Hub's less favorable issues! I honestly think the Eclat will be the one to go for! However....

Odyssey are working on a Freecoaster, from the Original Patent Drawings I have seen, it is going to run a REAL TRUE Female Axle! Which is the First Freecoaster to do so! I MUCH Prefer Female Axles! I'm working on a New Bike & I do have dreams of certain Bike Builds! I'm going for the Wethepeople/Eclat with the Utopia & I'm thinking of going for an all out Odyssey Build with the New Frame I have Purchased & when I re-build the Benny L Maverick Cranks & Blind Freecoaster WILL Feature!!!!

If I ever get a coaster it'll be the éclat or profile.. Fuck everyone else.. Also I like she male the best.. The axel takes the load of drops and the bolt takes the load of pegs.. Seems strongest and in my opinion the easiest to work with.

On BikeGuide, in the thread "So I just put an Animal Javelin female kit in my Ezra coaster."

The Merged said "I could be wrong but the tooling costs a fuck load do it in LHD. Now that the hub design has been out for a year and plenty of brands are jumping on board and doing their own (espeically on completes) I wouldn't be surprised if we see a LHD and Female version available soon.

The Blind hub will be out in March."
