The Ultra New hub is Surly's refinement of the New hub. While the shell remains unchanged -- 6061-T6 forged and machined aluminum alloy with medium-height flanges -- the ultra newness of the Ultra New is found in the internals.
Surly''s previous design used nutted axles, throwing your lot in with a bolt-on set-up. The Ultra New has an axle design that allows you the best of both worlds, using a Surly-designed hollow axle mated to thread-in fixing bolts. To run quick-release, just pull out the wheel fixing bolts, throw in your quick release skewer, and you''re good to go.
Thoughtfully designed hardware makes the Ultra New corrosion resistant and high strength: wheel fixing bolts, bolt caps, and ''cone'' nuts are all stainless steel, and they''re also heavily knurled so that your wheel bites hard on the frame under high load.
