Replacement freehub body for the 2012 model year Boyd Cycling hubs (these will NOT work with the new redesigned 2013 model year hubs). This freehub body is the newest design with Enduro sealed bearings (1X6801 1X6902) and six independently operating pawls for very fast engagement when you stomp on the pedals. There is a small spring under each pawl to guarantee solid engagement out of each pawl. This freehub comes standard on all of our hubs.
11 Speed Shimano freehubs now available. You can still run 10 speed on an 11 speed compatible freehub with a 1.8mm spacer behind the cassette. If you have 11 speed Shimano you MUST run the 11 speed freehub body (no spacer required). There is NO REDISHING of the rear wheel required when swapping over to an 11 speed freehub body.
Very simple design makes it easy to change out the freehub body using just two 5mm allen wrenches. You can change between Shimano 10sp, Shimano 11sp, and Campy very easily without having to redish the wheel after (the dish is made up in the freehub body). This design allows for the use of a heavier grease between the pawls and teeth inside the hub for more of a noise dampening effect. Use a low viscosity oil if you like for your hubs to be a little louder.
Note, as with all freehub bodies there is a little "notching" that can occur from the gears. This is because aluminum is a softer material and the cassette spline can wear into it. To prevent this from happening make sure your cassette is tightened down very well. If your cassette is not tightened down it can wiggle back and forth a bit which will cause the notches. A well tightened cassette has no wiggle room and your freehub body will remain looking clean.

I used the 11 speed upgrade kit to rebuild my rear hub. This came with everything required and the rebuild was completed in 5 minutes with basic tools. Highly recommended!

I purchased this freehub body to upgrade to 11-speed. It installs quick and easy. While taking apart my old freehub, I damaged the axle in the process. I emailed Boyd asking about a buying a replacement and he had one shipped to me within the week at no charge! Customer service like this is hard to come by, which is why my wheels will continue to have Boyd's name on them.

Recently upgraded from 9 speed to 11 speed, so I need this freehub to make the transition. Arrived quickly and easy to swap out. Perfect!

I bought a pair of 10 speed Boyd carbon tubular wheels off of eBay. I reviewed Boyd's website on how to upgrade to 11 speed. I emailed a picture of the wheels to Boyd just to make sure that all I needed was an 11 speed freehub. They reviewed the picture and responded in only a couple of hours to confirm that I only needed the freehub to upgrade. As a testament to Boyd wheels, they felt very responsive and super fast in the 2 crits I did this weekend. I will definitely consider Boyd wheels first on my next wheel purchase!

I was having trouble getting the old freehub off and Boyd himself answered all my emails.
Excellent customer service.
Haven't tested the hub yet but I'd expect the performance and and worry free use as my 10spd freehub

Seamless install made my conversion to 11spd easy and fast! Rode my 60mm Carbon Clinchers this last weekend in Speedweek and was flying thanks to fast shipping and easy install!

I begrudgingly upgraded to 11 speed this year. I was afraid that my trusted Boyd Rouleurs would be rendered useless. Not so. This simple upgrade added a bomb-proof training wheel-set to my quiver. Now they are my go to training wheel for my TT Bike which has finicky brakes set up for more narrow wheels. I am stoked to apply this upgrade to an older set of 50mm Boyds we have too!
