It's true: WTB is introducing a new LaserDisc Lite hub with a 15 x 10-millimeter thru-axle to accompany the new crop of 15QR forks from Fox and Marzocchi. We're excited about this new system for trail riding applications. All Mountain/trail riding is the heart and soul of WTB. Mark Weir--Mr. All Mountain--has been in the product design loop for both this new hub and Fox's 15mm system. Through Weir's rigorous testing, the 15QR system has proven to be strong, light and safer than conventional dropouts.
The LaserDisc Lite 15mm hub will be available this fall, along with a multitude of other exciting new-for-2009 components.
