The CK's dont really leap out at me like the headsets, I have no idea why.

Agree with you there, its more a name really as with many others.

I didnt see any Azonics and I probably passed over the Da Bomb ones as its a make I havent heard of.


CRC have some azonic hubs which are nice. I have been running da domb rims for 4 years now and throw some heavy stuff/some bad landings and i rebuilt them the other day for the 3rd time and theyre like new (Amazed at these, although they are £50 a rim. Fairly light too - Da Bomb Da rims).
Da bomb is starting to get good recognition for good parts (although the prices have jumped up somewhat :shock: sign of the times)

More research will be undertaken tonight, but I still think the Hope's will take some beating. And, personally, I like the noise they make! :roll:.


True the hopes will take some beating as many others recommend them. I do look for slighty less mainstream products though - habit. But that bloody noise! :evil: Its not even a proper noise like the buzz of my old hope hub (big un or bulb i think)
