I've used:

-DT Swiss 240
-Extralight
-Tune
-Mavic
-Campy
-Shimano

......DT was the loudest in my experience.

This might also help a bit:

(from your friends at FWB)
This is an excellent comparison as the microphone is held at a constant distance to the wheel.

Similarly, Ligero (who now works w/ or @ FWB, I believe) posted this video a while back:

Hi,

Loud freewheels invariably lose more energy than quiet ones.

Ciao, ;)

Only while coasting. :)


Actually now you have me wondering. Take the grease out of the freewheel mechanism and replace with light oil. It will be louder, but does it have more drag?

Louder and less drag. Drag from pawls is pretty minimal anyway though.

Industry Nine freehubs are apparently veeery loud.

Tune hubs are loud too. So loud it's annoying.


Agreed. I have a new Tune Mag 170, and it's the loudest hub I've owned.

Okay, two pages and no one has asked the obvious question: Why do you (or anyone) want the loudest hubs?
Is it just to annoy the guy trying to drop you on a slight downhill? He's up there thinking "I'm hurting him", so quit pedaling just to remind him how futile his effort is? I really don't care how loud or soft my freehub is as long as it performs and lasts (by the way, I love the sound of the Soul freehub in my 3.0 SLs with the upgraded hubs. It sounds like it has double the pawls).

Loudest I've had was Planet X on a pair of their carbon wheels first gen. Loud as in peds 200m away turning round loud.

Zipp are loud in a good way.

It's very handy for commuting in the city, and actually pretty handy on descents when going past people ... though the risk is always they look round, change line and you have to adjust in response.

And if you *really* love your King hubs' sound, you can make it your ringtone.
