Zipp Speed Weaponry 182 Freehub Body

The Zipp 182 hub is their previous rear hub design. It's distinguished by the carbon-fiber end caps. As we've written before, we don't think your initial choice of freehub body design should lock you into a component group for the life of your wheels; think about how that can get compounded over several sets of hoops acquired over the years. This is why we're offering loose Zipp 182 Freehub bodies. This way, you can start with a Campagnolo-splined freehub body and switch to a Shimano/SRAM body or vice-versa.
This body is specific to that hub. If you have wheels with the current Zipp rear hub, the 188, you need a different freehub body, which we also sell. The 182, so named for the weight, is held together with a nut on the non-drive side end of the axle. Insert a 5mm Allen key into both axle ends and turn counter-clockwise. Unscrew the nut, and you can pull the axle out from the right side. With the axle out, you can easily pull out the freehub body. Make sure to catch the .25mm washer that goes between the body and hub shell.
Zipp makes both Campagnolo-splined and Shimano/SRAM-splined freehub bodies for the 182 hub shell. The .25 mm spacer goes between the body and hub shell in both Campy and Shimano-SRAM. If you are running Campagnolo 11-speed cassette, Zipp recommends putting a second .25mm spacer between the body and hub shell.
