For everyday riding in a maintenance-free package
...the latest generation of SRAM gear hubs.
The new SRAM G8 features even gear spacing, paired with fast, responsive shifts, making a serious alternative to a traditional derailleur system. The guts of the G8 are safely contained and protected inside a sleek outer housing, making the system robust and maintenance-free.
The SRAM G8 is ideal for everyday riding and all-weather conditions. It's also perfect for touring over long distances while still keeping a race-ready feel. In short, the G8 is for riders who would rather spend their time on the road, without having to deal with maintenance and adjustments.
