White Industries Eno Freewheel Cassette

Eno Freewheel

A freewheel is not a freewheel is not a freewheel. The White Industries ENO Freewheel is not some stamped and plated thing, but a CNC machined work of art. It has chromoly steel teeth with a sealed cartridge bearing on the inside to ensure long life. In fact, if you're used to running lesser freewheels and setting your clock by the regularity with which they explode, the Eno will be a pleasant surprise. White Industries builds the Eno Freewheel with 36 engagement points via a three-pawl mechanism. They're perfect for single-speeding in tough, technical terrain as a forward pedal stroke under full power is never more than just a few degrees away. The ultra-quick engagement and flawless construction make this one sweet, high-tech freewheel. The Eno Freewheel is right-hand threaded for English 1.37"x 24tpi hubs. It works with either 1/8" or the derailleur-friendly 3/32" chain. It's available in three tooth counts -- 16t, 17t, 18t.

Strength:

Durability, serviceability, and efficiency.

Weakness:

None

My freewheel was due for a rebuild after 6 years with over 2K miles per year. After pulling up a video online I was able to easily break it down, clean it up, and replace the sealed bearings.
I am a cheap b@st@rd so the sticker price made me cringe initially but this is one of the best values I have ever purchased in the mountain bike world.

Strength:

6 pawls. 72 engagement points, solid feel. very loud sound. easy serviceable. high quality steel construction so it doesn't get marked in the interior mechanism when one pawl skips. Fast engagement. Very durable

Weakness:

a bit expensive. You can find a good echo tr or a monty freewheel for 60 dolars. its hard to find one where i live. also it has skipped a few times, but the other pawls do the job and hold the power instantly.

buy it if you have the chance. it's the best freewheel for trials use. it feels confidence when you have to hit the pedal strong. Mechnism engages instantly. Trials riders buy it, also do that if you're a streety single speed rider. Otherwise you may find better a shimano transmission type.

Strength:

This freewheel is like no other. One you can rebuild it. Two you won't need to rebuild it any time soon. Sealed bearings no. Inner and outer piece are machined concentrically so there are not tight or loose spots. there are 36 ratchet points not the standard 27. And 3 pawl not 2. And made in USA

Weakness:

none

If you want to never buy another freewheel get a White Industries.

Similar Products Used: ACS crap, shimano crap.

Strength:

Reliable, takes abuse, looks great, sounds great. Can be overhauled and will last a long time.

Weakness:

Pricey.

There are freewheels and then there are White Industries freewheels. Just like Phil Wood hubs or Thomson seatposts, it's expensive but worth every cent. Start with the cheap ones first until you know your gearing, then buy one of these.

Similar Products Used: ACS claws.
