White Industries ENO Trials Freewheel
White Industries is well-known and respected for their freewheels. Although more costly than it’s foreign-made competitors, the American-made White Industries Trials Freewheel is built to last. The main features are the number of engagement points and the use of sealed-cartridge bearings. And unlike any other freewheel out there, the White Industries freewheel is made to be disassembled and serviced.
The Trials Freewheel takes their high-performance to a new level. It features twice as many engagement points as their standard freewheel—a total of 72—and features a beefed up outer gear case for additional durability. Of course at 202g, it weighs almost 30g more than the standard freewheel, but it’s a small price to pay for the performance and quality.
On the bike, what you’ll notice is absolute instantaneous engagement. Ratchet the pedals forward just a hair and the bike is rearing to go. The other thing you’ll notice is a high-pitched whine when you’re coasting, as though you’ve got a whole next of hornets chasing after your rear hub.
The Trials Freewheel is only available as an 18t, and retails for $120. Visit www.whiteind.com for more info.
