GW has been hard at work on creating a new, mountain bike specific hub that is strong enough to handle the requirements of the most demanding riders.
The M-Max series of hubs is made up of the M17-3 and M17-5 hub shells built around an oversized 17x12mm axle. By increasing the diameter of the rear axle, we were able to significantly stiffen and strengthen the hub.
The M-Max hubs are equipped with a full set of high-quality cartridge bearings to ensure smooth spinning with minimal maintenance requirements. To make servicing easier, these hubs are equipped with end caps that can be removed without tools.
GW Manufacturing is proud to promote diversity and inclusion in its workforce and was recently given an award for its efforts by the Taichung City government. The award, officially named “The Outstanding Performance Award for Agencies (institutions) performing well on employing the physically and mentally disabled in Taichung City in 2019” was given to GW in an award ceremony at City Hall earlier this year.
GW believes that diversity of experience leads to more points of view and creativity and this gives us an advantage to solving problems. In addition, upper management recognizes that all people, regardless of their abilities, can make a meaningful contribution and that small modifications to the office and factory layout and flexible human resources policies allow all people to reach their full potential.

GW Manufacturing is proud to support the MACC Fund and their fight against childhood cancers. MACC funds research into cures and treatments and over this time they have contributed more than $65 million over the past 43 years. Trek has been a major supporter of MACC. They have contributed more than $16 million dollars since 1990. This year, GW is partnering with Trek to support the Trek 100 fundraising event and bike ride.
The Trek 100 event, which takes place on June 1, is welcoming to everyone with rides ranging from 27 to 160km, a pre-ride breakfast and a party afterwards. We want to encourage everyone who is able to make a contribution to this worthwhile cause or to join this incredible event.
