Some really nice, lightweight wheels could be built up with these. These are the older Aivee graphics. But it's the SR5 hubs. With soldered and tied Sapim CX-Ray spokes!

Some more beautiful wheel builds with the entry level Aivee SR2 hubs.

A brilliantly polished pair of Edition One hubs. Even with tied and soldered spokes!

Is there a breakdown somewhere summarizing the differences between the hubs? Looking at, say, the road hubs it’s kinda hard to distinguish what separates the models (and some of the copy describing each hub appears to be for the wrong model, possibly? — like if you look at the “MP6 Front” page it talks about Edition One HD?)....

Out of curiousity, what's the freehub noise like? In my old age, I am increasingly selling my noisier wheels (I'm looking at you, Hope) and going quieter (Shimano, for example).

How do they deal with bearing preload/play?

The "Edition One" hubs have beautiful curves to the hub shoulders. Of course, looking at the site, they are the expensive model.

Just checked and the Edition One SL CL hubs together with their rim should build into a ~1350gr ultralight XC or monstercross wheelset. Prices are pretty reasonable too.

Sorry for not responding sooner. I didn't notice the questions till today. Hopefully the answers will help.

Apologies for the confusion on the Aivee website. They did do a bit of cut and paste and it can be frustrating. I've brought it up to them a couple times. They've told me they are working on it and will hopefully have something done soon.

Regarding the models, obviously the Edition One is easy. There is an SL version of that which is slightly lighter. The E1/SL come in two versions- J-Bend and Straight Pull style.
- The SR5/SR2 models are similar. Same hub shell but lightened on the SR5 slightly and the SR5 comes stock with better bearings.
- The MP6/MP4 is the same upgrades/downgrades as the SR hubs. And obviously the MP hubs are designed to be used with gravel or cross builds due to the larger stiffer shells. The SR hubs are only intended for road or tt builds.

The Mountain Hub follow the same designs/upgrades/downgrades as the road hubs.

While there are some less expensive bearing options for the hubs, Ezo, SKF and Ceramic Speed are no slouches for bearing options! So even on the lesser expensive hubs, you are getting insanely good bearings. The Ezo bearings are used on Hunt Wheels and they spin forever. Excellent quality bearings.

Hopefully that answers your questions about models.

These are about the same as a Shimano or slightly louder. It depends on how you maintain them. I have a set that's silent. But I use a mix of Finish Line Grease and TriFlow. The TriFlow thins out the grease a bit and keeps things waterproof and well lubed. It's the same way I redo Mavic FTS style hubs.

The end caps are slip fit like many other brands are. They use an o-ring for centering and keeping them snug. Preload is by the quick release.

Yes, they are the highest lever hubs Aivee makes. Very light and have a more stylized look with the extra machining they do. I like the Straight Pull ones a lot for race wheels with deeper carbon rims. But the standard J-Bend ones are of course easier to build up.

They offer a Shimano 9/10/11, SRAM 9/10/11, SRAM XD/XDr style and a Campagnolo 9/10/11/12 freehub. Now, with the new N3W style freehub body, I am not sure when that will be available. But yes, they offer a Campy freehub body.

The E1SL hubs are very light. For an alloy hub, 1300 grams is pretty normal weight wise for an XC wheel. Most gravels I've done are around 1400-1450 depending on rims and spokes. Road wheels, 1100-1200 isn't uncommon. Again, depending on the spokes and rims.

They are easily serviced at home. Look great, function beautifully and most importantly, come in colors!
