Big Rotor Good. But making the magnets narrower, uh, sorta waters it down. I see where they are headed with it though, like the pie. Better hill performance, better starts, but not making the motor a big heavy watt hog like a clyte 5304.
I can see how with the right winding, you'd get a faster motor without the compromise in slower speed or uphill performance you get with for example, my aotema. That motor is fast, but look how slow off the line it was in the race. Equally slow out of the corners too. We are all familar with hub motors slow building of the last 5 mph of speed. Perhaps with the extra leverage, that last 5 mph might get there sooner. It seems that way when I compare my 2807 with my aotema.
I don't know if the narrower flange will matter all that much in a front hub. It doesn't leave much room to dish a rear for sure.
