This innovative hub uses the rotation of the wheel itself to control the slack.
It works by itself, with no need to backpedal to disengage or to maintain disengagement.
While moving backwards, the Planetary Clutch ensures maximum slack.
As long as you keep moving backwards the hub will not engage*
* Fast pedal forward movement while moving backwards can cause unwanted and damaging engagement.
Pedaling forward while moving backwards is possible, but depends on the speed rotation of the wheel.
