SRAM Predictive Steering Hub
Erase uncertainty with the PREDICTIVE STEERING™ hub, SRAM’s new XC hub engineered for unprecedented stiffness and precision. Unique fork, axle and compression technologies combine at the core of PREDICTIVE STEERING™. The RS-1 fork never shifts thanks to the large-diameter TORQUE TUBE axle that creates an unbreakable bond, locking the lowers in place and maximizing torsional stiffness. The new Maxle Ultimate completes the connection with a tighter, stronger clamping force than you’d expect from a quick release compression system.
The SRAM PREDICTIVE STEERING™ Hub proves that being solid doesn’t mean being sluggish. Super-precise SPEEDBALL™ bearings mean lower resistance, faster revolutions and no more time spent readjusting play.
- Dedicated hub interface for the inverted RS-1 fork - creates an unparalleled bond between fork and hub
- Torque Tube is an oversized, solid aluminum axle that locks the forks lowers together
- Non convertible
- Available for J-bend spokes
- SPEEDBALL™ bearings for smooth and durable rotation

- PREDICTIVE STEERING™
Unique fork, axle and compression technologies combine at the core of Predictive Steering. Fork twisting is reduced thanks to the large-diameter TORQUE TUBE axle that creates an unbreakable bond, locking the lowers in place and maximizing torsional stiffness. A wider hub flange spacing results in a stronger, more responsive wheel. The new Maxle Ultimate completes the connection with a tighter, stronger clamping force than you’d expect with a quick release compression system. Compatible with the SRAM PREDICTIVE STEERING hub and the RISE XX, RISE 60 and ROAM 50 29" Wheels, and featured on RockShox RS-1.
Get unbent. 3D forged and machined for lightweight strength, the flanges are angled towards the rim—allowing the spokes to be fully in-line when tensioned. The result: reduced spoke head breakage and better overall durability.
The only adjustment they’ll ever need was made back at the factory. Every part of the ball bearing comes from the exact same supplier—which means that each bearing bore can be precision machined to fit the bearing race exactly. With tolerances this tight, the days of adjusting play after every ride are over.
