Changing the Freehub Body on Proven Race XC UD Carbon Spoke Wheelset
THIS GUIDE REFERS TO A FREEHUB BODY SWAP ON OUR PROVEN RACE XC UD CARBON SPOKE WHEELSET.
Remove the wheel from the bike and remove cassette if fitted.
Pull the drive side end cap from the axle – no tools are required.
The freehub body this simply slides off the axle. When removing ensure all six pawls are in place and seated correctly.
Make sure you retain the silver spacer behind the freehub body this needs re-fitting before re-installing the freehub body.
To service the freehub mechanism clean the ratchet ring and the pawls of the freehub body with a dry microfibre cloth and lubricate with a thin layer of lightweight grease.
Fit the silver spacer onto the drive side of the axle and the freehub of your choice.
Push the adaptor/end cap back on to the drive side of the axle. Please Note: if swapping from SRAM XD or SHIMANO HG to SHIMANO Microspline or vice versa the drive side end cap is specific to the freehub body.
Ensure that the adaptors are fully pressed home to ensure proper fit and prevent any lateral play.
