When is Halo releasing Micro Spline hubs?

Have Shimano’s latest group set offerings made you think about changing your freehub?

On the advent of Shimano Micro Spline being open to 3rd party brands as of January 2020, we are proudly one of the few brands to be able to offer a solution from the get go.

We have been collaborating with sister company Identiti to offer hubs which utilise Micro Spline. These limited edition branded hubs and wheels are now available. Halo branded Micro Spline hub and wheel offerings are in production and we expect to see a full range solely under the Halo name, including freehubs that will retrofit existing models, in Spring 2021.

If you have any more questions regarding Micro Spline Halo hubs please feel free to contact us.
