Lengthwise fins ensure the tire cannot spin on the hub even if the washer isn't installed.

3mm shaft bore fits the Repeat Drive Brushed, Silver Spark Gearmotors and most other 16 mm gearmotors.

Lightweight Twist Hubs currently available for in Wide thickness fitting 0.75in thick foam wheels.

Collapsible content


- The hub is secured to the motor shaft by a large 8-32 setscrew. Keep in mind this is plastic (very strong, but still not as strong as aluminum)

- the setscrew does not need to be overtightened. "Firmly snug" is enough to hold the wheel tightly on the flat of a motor shaft.
- Weight: 3.5g each. (7grams per pair) Super lightweight! (Less than half the weight of the aluminum Twist Hubs)
- The foam tire is held tightly by a custom locking washer, which must be pressed in and turned 90 degrees to release.
- Four protruding fins will allow you to keep driving even if the locking washer is destroyed. No tire slippage!
