- One of our longest serving freewheels, and for good reason - these are highly durable and offer excellent performance at a great price!
- Engagement is taken care of by three sets of two pawls, and these engage into a hardened chromoly 20 tooth ratchet (similar to an ACS Claws) to give 60 clicks.
- Two sets of ball bearings keep the freewheel running smooth, and help to eliminate flex which can cause skipping.
- Fully user serviceable, with all moving parts now available separately, check the 'Freewheel Spares' section of our website.
- The freewheel can be removed with a Shimano-style 20 spline bottom bracket tool. This allows it to be slimmer, meaning more clearance over your BB shell, and thus a shorter, stronger bottom bracket axle can be used.
- The lockring is a right hand thread helping it to not self-loosen when used on crank arms, a common problem found on most other freewheels.
- Full hardened cromoly construction with nickel plating for maximum durability.
- 18T outer casing.
- Weight: 181g

Overall Thickness: 16.06mm

This freewheel must be bedded in before trials use, to ensure any excess grease used when assembling the freewheel works away from the mechanism. You can do this by riding the freewheel around 'normally' for a few hours, both freewheeling and engaging the mechanism gently. If the freewheel is subjected to trials use without having been bedded in, the pawls will not engage correctly and this causes the freewheel to skip, damaging the pawls and ratchet. If you wish to speed up this process, you can thin the grease down with light oil like GT85 or WD40, by spraying it between the centre and outer teeth of the freewheel and rotating it. Failure to bed the freewheel in correctly will void the warranty.

Additional Information

Can be used on the rear as long as you have a hub with standard 1.37" x 24 tpi thread, however it is designed to be used on crank arms and the lockring needs extra attention when used on a rear hub.

Always ensure the lockring is kept tight, failure to do so may limit chances of any warranty replacement being issued. If you need help with how to do this then just give us a call!

This freewheel comes with grease in the mechanism and needs some time to bed in. We recommend NOT riding trials on this freewheel for the first few hours of use to ensure the freewheel does not skip and become damaged.

Freewheel sound level:

All freewheels tested under similar conditions. Please note that the sound level of a freewheel may change after bedding in. A 10 dB increase in sound level is approximately equivalent to double the perceived volume.

Questions

stuart

Hi, will this fit my Onza Spyrogyra stock hub? Thanks.

Hi Stuart - It would work, but you'd need to keep an eye on the lockring to make sure it's tight. The Tensile freewheel uses a regular thread compared to most other freewheels that use an opposite thread - on a pair of cranks this works better, but on the rear it means the Tensile freewheel's lockring is more likely to come loose compared to other freewheels. Thanks, Mark

jac

hi will this be ok with a standard onza back wheel

Posted by jac on 03/05/2012

Reply from TartyBikes on 03/05/2012

Hello - Due to the lockring design on the Tensile freewheel, if used on the rear you'll need to make sure that the lockring is tightened up at all times. It's more prone to coming loose when used on a rear hub than the other freewheels we stock - something like the RockMan 72 Click freewheel would be a better bet for a lower maintenance freewheel. It also has a few more engagement points than a Tensile freewheel as an additional bonus! Thanks, Mark

Bradley

Hi Brad here, the free shown in one of the pictures says that there are a R/F and F/F and 3/32 and 1/8 then either a 16, 18 or 20 teeth, i was just wondering is the R/F and F/F mean front freewheel or rear freewheel, im looking to replace my broken one witch is a 18 teeth one, will this freewheel be the same size and will it fit on the crank not the rear Hub Thanks Brad

Posted by Bradley on 25/08/2012

Reply from TartyBikes on 28/08/2012

Hi Brad - Originally Tensile were planning on making a front freewheel (F/F) model to fit cranks and a rear freewheel (R/F) model to fit on rear hubs. All that was different was the thread orientation for the lockring. They now just make the "F/F" version, which is the one most suitable for you. They also only make them in 18t size now, with 3/32" teeth. This freewheel is compatible with almost all set-ups so should be fine for you. Thanks, Mark

Xander Myles

Hi, this might be a stupid question but I already use a ENO 18t Freewheel for my XC Singlespeed with huge success, would this work just as good? Or is it solely for trials riding? If you can recommend an alternative that'd be great. Cheers for your help

Posted by Xander Myles on 07/07/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 08/07/2013

Hi Xander - thanks for your question. This particular freewheel wouldn't be a great option for that. The lockring faces outwards, and uses a right hand thread to help it stop coming undone when used on cranks. If you were to use it on the hub, the lockring would come undone quite regularly even under trial use - and XC riding would obviously end up revolving the wheel many more times than a trials bike. We have many other freewheels that would be more suited the the task - any with a lockring on the hub/crank side would be fine. Thanks, Flipp.

andrew

Would this sprocket fit on a because forged spuare taper crank set ?

Posted by andrew on 29/01/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 29/01/2014

Hi Andrew - thanks for your question. Firstly, it's worth noting that this is a freewheel - not a sprocket. If you are after a sprocket, please see our Sprockets category. This freewheel will fit on those cranks absolutely fine, so if you just used the wrong word by accident then this will work. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

joe gregory

Hi, what tool is needed to remove this freewheel?

Posted by joe gregory on 05/01/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 05/01/2011

Hi Joe - As stated in the description, any Shimano-style 20 spline bottom bracket tool will work for removing this freewheel. That includes tools like the Cyclus and IceToolz BB tools that we stock on our website. Thanks, Mark

Max Diment

Would this freewheel fit on a set of try all expert cranks? Are the threads the same? Many thanks

Posted by Max Diment on 14/08/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 15/08/2013

Hi Max - this freewheel would fit on those cranks just fine. Thanks, Flipp.

Andy Ince

Hi guys, Just wondering about the freewheel dba thing in the additional information box. Can you explain to me what it means as I am stumped. Cheers. =)

Posted by Andy Ince on 10/05/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 12/05/2014

Hi Andy - thanks for your question. The dBA level refers to the volume of the freewheel. Some people like their freewheel to be as loud as possible, so we measure this and put it on for them to compare. The bigger the number, the louder the freewheel will be. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

good kit

Posted by ant on 19/11/2011

Good bit of kit for the money and reliable with a nice sound.

Reply from TartyBikes on 21/11/2011

Hi Ant - These freewheels do seem to be quite reliable, especially considering they're relatively cheap compared to other models out there too. Thanks for the review.

Josh

Not bad

Posted by Josh on 26/04/2013

Fitted the freewheel, bedded in with 6 hours normal (non trials) riding, was fantastic until it started skipping, if it didn't skip it would have a 5 star rating

Reply from TartyBikes on 29/04/2013

Hi Josh - Because of how thick the grease is in the Tensile freewheels they can sometimes be more prone to skipping when new. Thinning the grease out using some sort of spray-lube like GT-85 can help as it will allow the springs and pawls to move more freely. If you slowly rotate your freewheel while spraying the lube into the gap between the outer shell of the freewheel and the freewheel body, you will start to hear the sound of the freewheel change and it should become a little more positive.
