Anyone have any experiences with either road hubs?

Are White hubs used on Zipp, Reynolds or HED wheels?

thanks

I have a set of White hubs (mtn rear for larger flange) on a set of Speedreams and they are awesome! Don't know if used on those mentioned.

I have a set of White industries Hubs on my reynolds wheels, they are very nice, very ver smooth and fast. They also scream quality. very well made.

They are standard on all of Reynolds wheels.

I have them on my LEW Composite wheels and they are awesome. They are very smooth and pretty light. White Ind. customer service is absolutely incredible. I sent them an e-mail and someone from the company called me less than 10 minutes later. They sent out a part that I damaged free of charge.

White Ind hubs only come on Reynolds wheels. Zipp and Hed use proprietary hubs. The White hubs are the only hubs that can withstand the extremly high spoke tensions used on the LEW/Reynolds wheels.

I have Hugi hubs on my 'cross bike (used for commuting). They are light and trouble free, if you keep the rear pawls greased. The rear is easily user-serviceable, although their claim of no tools needed is a bit misleading. You don't need any specialty tools, just pliers and/or screwdriver to help ease the cassette and outer hub off to get at the innards.
