Money doesn't really matter, neither does how loud the hub is.
Out of these 4 hubs which would be the best for me. (don't tell me about any other hub I don't care.)

-Colony wasp hub
-Profile Mini Hub
-Profile Totem Hub
-Profile Elite hub

I don't run pegs or go backwards alot, i ride park box jumps and trails and i like to go fast i pedal everywhere in the summer.
Weight is not a big deal, but i like the really fast engagement of the elite and wasp, although the elite has more points of engagement.

(i already have a wasp wheel set, and one profile mini wheel i got when i sold my old primo wheels)

Totem's are supposedly improved Mini's, so i might look at those. I'd definatly get Profile over Colony.

I think they just slimmed them down and a few things. Not sure. Minis are good, Totems are probably decent, Elites are rad. Get whatever.

Ehh if you want out of those four, get the Minis. I think they look the best and will do well for what you want them for! Everyone that uses them for what you want loves them! Iwould purchase a few extra springs for them when you buy them because pedaling around a lot can be hard on it. Good luck man!

Get the elites if you don't run pegs ......silly fools bashing profile

|

12/25/2013 10:08 AM

If you ever plan to run pegs, Profile minis. If you ride at rays alot and i get the drift you do, then grab some elites!

Just curious, why dont you want anything other than profile? Profile are good but..
Cult Match/OG Mix/Eclat/Shadow Raptor uses the same bearings, same driver design, improved pawls and springs, and improved axle for nearly half the price, and you will always have the ability to run pegs smoothly with them (minis are peg friendly but have a bad reputation when it comes down to it). If you really want to spend $200 on the rear hub alone, why not go for a Gsport Ratchet or Tree v3 which are atleast innovative and proven to be better? Or even a Shadow BTR.
I know you said dont put any other hubs into the mix, but seriously, you can get the same, if not better, for way cheaper. Im only trying to help you out and save you money. Sorry!
Out of your options id get the colony wasp just because profile doesn't have the best reputation and its cheaper.

Also, you said you dont grind or go backwards, so the wasp gives you that near instant engagement that will be handy for flowing around, and the shemale axle (3/8s bolts) wont get harmed from grinding. And its pretty cheap. I really like them. Not a fan too much of colony, but they did well on these hubs.

I've had a remix before I liked it but it just wasn't right for me. And I've seriously just never liked the shadow or gsport hubs profile has always been something I liked, not sure why but it just seems like a lot of the older dudes that race and ride rays always have profiles so it seems like those are the best.

The Remix uses smaller bearings and is fairly flawed.
You would actually probably enjoy a Cult Match ovet a profile imo. Its basically the same, internally. The bearings are NEAR identical. Profile uses 6903 Match uses 6902. Strength wise and smoothness, theres really no difference. Same 4xpawl 4xspring driver design, improved but basically the same axle, etc. Only difference is it has higher flanges, which proves to make a stiffer wheel. And at the price you could get one, you can get a front hub aswell and STILL spend less than the profile rear hub alone.

The Profiles DO have a good reputation when it comes to park/trails and really flowy riding, with the exception of their pawl springs SUCK (they can be replaced by Primo springs though, way better.) However when it comes to street, your asking for trouble.
I dont see why not get an IMPROVED version of the hub for half the cost, that even though you dont ride street, is proven to hold up to what the profile doesnt hold up to (street).

Since I already have the rear profile mini and I want some profile wheels I'm gonna build the front wheel to match the rear one I got instead of selling it. Thanks guys!

Not referring to elites. Minis and totems.

The wasp is a lot closer to the elite than the stinger and dynamic 2/3 driver bearings are the same has the old pawl desgin and I'm pretty sure the same hub bearings

Elites and wasps are more of a racing design for riding.......wich is perfect if you don't run pegs flow and like amplitude and speed

Get elites ! Instant engagement , just buy them and you'll be fine !

I'd definately get Totems, because they look cleaner than Minis and aren't as fucking annoying as the Wasp and the Elite, because of their sound.

I loved my minis when I had them. They were a solid wheelset. Rolled smooth, lasted a while before I sold em.
