They told me its not a tree but I don't recognize this hub. Ive never seen a female axle not-KHE-clone FC before.

I would imagine for prototype purposes they wouldn't use straight pull. Seems like alot of work for a prototype. Ofcourse they would do it when they go into production.

Nahh. He wouldn't just post a random cassette and say its a fc. And the demolition is a KHE clone. Its a bit slimmer but not like this

I think its a "dartmoor" freecoaster. Did a bit of research and it looks like one.

Yeah thats the only one I could find aswell. Its probably this. They deny it being a tree coaster. Though who knows. I think tree will do what kink did coaster-wise before theyll drop a whole new hub. Though this really did raise my attention a bit.

He never mentioned it was a Tree freecoaster. He just said thanks to the owner for giving him one.

He didn't. He was thanking tree for giving him the coaster. Raised my suspicion of it being a tree coaster. I had never seen the dartmoor before.

Yeah I'm hoping that Hub Shell / Axle Set Up is just so they can dial in the Driver/Coaster Mechanism! I will be HIGHLY Disappointed if it doesn't come with AT LEAST Their 14mm Female Axle!! The Straight Pull Shell is what makes the Tree Hubs Unique BUT There are NO Legit Female Axle'd Freecoasters & the Tree Axle is pretty Unique! VERY Good Bearings & They have a weird compression thing on them so You can literally Clamp the living shit out of the Axle & it wont strip out or crush the Bearings!

I'd be SUPER Sad if there was No LEGIT Female Axle & a Little Bit Saddened if there wasn't a Straight Pull Hub Shell! Hopefully they will keep us updated! I mean look at Kink! They're literally offering a little upgrade kit to convert their Cassette into a Freecoaster!! Why not do that Tree? Buy Your SHIT HOT Cassette & then just switch a couple of Driver Parts out to make it a Freecoaster Hub?!

I wonder what the Kink Upgrade would be compatible with?! Maybe if the Tree'Coaster is less than impressive, You could just put the Kink Upgrade in their Cassette & just enjoy Riding that?!

Éclat.. Apparently the éclat blind has a very solid design. The owner of McNeil saw the design and was like fuck it where not making a free coaster then design is basic but it works.. Then their is the profile which is a cassette but a free coaster and then their is tree idk how it'll be better then the profile or the éclat

Tree does have a freecoaster proto. Sam told me about it last month. It runs the straight pull. He said it will be like the kink incite but you can buy just the freecoaster. unlike the incite where you have to buy the cassette and then buy the driver upgrade.

This. Macneil was going to make a freecoaster but after the owner/manager saw the build of the Eclat blind coaster he said its so good they won't build one.

14mm Female/Straightpull, Tree coaster would literally be perfect.

To me it looks like an Ezra.

At least a clone of their design. But who knows?

Could be a generic shell while they work to getting things dialed in?

I think it'd be cool to mess around with some tricks and film some tricks but I don't see myself switching to a coaster anytime soon.......I think 30 to 9 gearing would wear quick on a coaster

GUYS. This IS the tree coaster. I spoke with Sam in June and threw some Ideas at him. He said that one was in the works, but had not been worked with much but that there was going to be a prototype towards the end of the year. I know Sam, he just wants it kept under wraps.
