Sneak Peek: Alienation – Venus Hub
Get a look at the new Alienation Venus Hub.
Here’s a sneak peek at a new hub that Alienation has been working on called the Venus Hub. This hub utilizes the Planetary internals that we’ve been seeing popping up in multiple hubs lately that runs forward like a cassette and like a freecoaster when going backwards without having to engage or disengage it. In the video, Brant Moore mentions the internals have a few tweaks to it from the other hubs, but didn’t open it up to see what’s going on. The shell features a hexagon shape, which reminded us of the Stress Disco hubs that have a similar look, with machined A, L and N letters on it. We didn’t catch the release date or price, but we would imagine it’ll be available soon, if not already if Brant is able to show it off. It is listed on the Alienation website , but we didn’t find any dealers listing it online just yet. It will be available in Black and Polished colors.
“The Alienation Venus is the newest planetary BMX hub!
I am honored to have been able to help with this hub and even named it!
I have an entire playlist devoted to videos testing the original Free Night Planetary freecoaster as well as comparing it to other freecoasters.” – Brant Moore
