The many faces of a Profile Hub.

We want to thank everyone for their continued support of Profile Racing.
Its been 46 years of American made manufacturing: 1968 to 2014. Pretty wild to consider.

We’re also super stoked to have hit 30K followers on Instagram this week.
So much so, we’re throwing a 30K contest Monday October 27th to celebrate.
Keep an eye out.

In the meantime, here’s a couple production photos we shot this week while walking through the machine shop.
Thanks for the love.

Here’s a photo of bar stock delivered daily for manufacturing of all Profile Racing Hub Bodies.

An early morning photo of pawl pocket machining fixtures for all Profile Racing hub cassette drivers.

Here’s two Micrometers for measuring Profile Racing hub bodies. One measures bore depth, the other measures bore ID.

Here’s several carbide inserts. Each shape and color determines a different machining process on a specified material.

Did you know that all left over aluminum from the manufacturing of Profile Racing hubs is recycled?
Excess material gets picked up every two weeks from the Profile factory.

Here’s a container filled with ratchet ring blanks fresh out of the CNC lathe. These ratchet rings are ready for broaching and heat treating. One of several processes done on this very important part of the cassette hub.
