Foss Zero Drag Silent Hub is a kind of special bicycle ratchet construction in which the ratchet departs automatically and turns into zero drag and silent mode when the rider doesn't pedal. Therefore, if the rider feels fatigue and stops pedaling, our ratchet retreats spontaneously, enabling wheelsets to rotate with only two bearings running at the same time. Without ratchet dragging, the consumption of speed inertia force would decline sharply. Our Zero Drag Silent Hub offers overwhelming advantages, particularly during long journeys, since the rider not only needs to consume less energy but can also perform with better endurance. Our hub would keep silent during the journey and enables riders to enjoy the real happiness of a tranquil bicycle trip.
