Colson Hubs from West Coast Products are the quickest and easiest way to integrate a Colson solid-core rubber wheel into a FIRST ® Robotics Competition drivetrain. Colson wheels are a common choice for competitive robotics, and the new hubs from West Coast Products make them simpler than ever to use.
Colson Live hubs enable a direct drive system via a powered hex shaft (like in the VersaChassis). The hub is also slightly longer than previous options, allowing a better fit for both 1.5” and 2” wide wheels.
Colson Dead hubs allow the wheels to be powered by a sprocket, pulley, or gear. The hub now features an integrated VersaKey pattern, providing seamless interaction with all VEXpro sprockets, pulleys, and gears. Plus, the new hub also features a counter-bore, allowing teams to use either flanged or non-flanged bearings. •Colson Dead Hubs are VersaKey compatible •Machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum •Black anodized for superior performance
