The Torch road hub features all of the advantages of the Torch freehub -low drag, low weight, and the ultimate in freehub compatibility- tied into a traditional, "Classic" hub.
Road hubs use the same drive ring and pawls as the mountain hubs. However, we reduced the pawl count to 3 instead of 6 for lower drag and weight while still achieving an industry leading (for road hubs) 6 degree engagement. Relocated bearings, and a new freehub seal reduce freehub drag while coasting.
The Torch road hubs now feature custom Teflon contact seals for the end caps, which we manufacture in-house. They fully seal the hubs from mud and water - tight enough for a muddy CX season, but smooth enough for drag-free road miles.
