Banebots T81 Hubs


We’ve been running Banebots wheels in our beetleweight combat bots for years. And ItGresa has been chasing them, trying to get them into our product set for you– we knew they were the best in the business. At long, long last, we are absolutely THRILLED to become a Banebots distributor and bring you the best beetleweight and larger wheels! These Banebots T81 hubs are mated to the Banebots wheels and are attached with an unbreakable grip.

Banebots T81 wheels represent the next generation in Banebots’ larger wheels. The T81 wheels and hubs provide all the best of the proven T80 wheels with an enhanced hub design. You can get that improved design now– the T81 hub

The new hubs have a square and a round portion matching the molded center of the new wheels. The center round portion of the wheels is machined after molding to provide a close tolerance fit to the round portion of the hub eliminating the wobble or slop found in many molded wheels. The square portion provides excellent torque transfer from the hub to the wheel and provides room for two set screws placed 90degrees apart to secure the hub to a shaft.

Note: These are sold as EACH, not as pairs. Order the total number of hubs that you need.



Installation of the Banebots T81 wheels is quick and easy. Simply slide the hub onto the shaft and secure it in place with the set screws. Push the wheel onto the hub and lock it in place with the snap ring. The hub does not extend beyond the wheel so multiple wheels can be mounted tight against each other. The hubs and wheels can be removed and reused or reconfigured at any time as needed.

We’ve been wanting to get the Banebots T81 Wheels and hubs for a year. We use them in our beetles and we love them! So glad to develop a partnership with Banebots as we work to help you, the builder, more with your beetle– and larger.
