What It Is Let’s face it:

A set of aftermarket billet aluminum hubs is a hefty investment, but stock hubs just don’t look that cool. Dubya USA is the premier source for everything related to aftermarket wheels—from hubs and spokes to nipples and rims—and now it also offers a great, more affordable alternative. Cerakote Ceramic Coating is a hard-surface coating process that can not only make your stock cast aluminum hubs look a lot cooler, but can also help protect them from discoloration often caused by chemicals in the dirt. If you’ve ever ridden in mud and noticed that your frame and hubs looked stained afterward, you know what we’re talking about. For $200, you can send your hubs to Dubya and they will remove the bearings, sandblast them, have them Cerakoted, and reinstall the bearings. While you’re at it, you can also have them lace up new spokes and rims, too!

Hits

• The Cerakote Ceramic Coating service is ideal for those looking to refurbish a bike, as it gives the hubs a super-cool appearance. This is extremely popular in vintage racing circles.

• Four different colors are available: titanium, black, tungsten, and burnt bronze.

• We had our Suzuki RM250 hubs Cerakoted with the tungsten color, and they look amazing.

Misses

• None, really. Cerakote Ceramic Coating is affordable and protects against staining.

The Verdict

Let’s face it: Motocross is a performance-oriented sport that is also very heavily influenced by aesthetics. Cerakote Ceramic Coating is an affordable means of giving your bike’s hubs that factory look, without the price tag of aftermarket hubs. dubyausa.com
