I feel like they wouldnt compromise strength for weight so much. Going as big as they do, if they break something then there is a really high chance of them getting hurt pretty bad. If a pro repeatedly broke his hubs, then I feel like he wouldn't hesitate to switch to a different brand/model. You are right in saying they can get awesome new parts really easily, but I don't believe they would put themselves in harms way just to have a bike that is light/cool that breaks all the time.

Pro riders today use whatever their sponsors give them,or whatever part they can get for free,they don't spend money on bikes or parts like we do.

I've seen cases in bike checks were some pros use different parts because they like them better.

Yea but parts get stressed, im sure a profile hub will hold up to anything for a week, but 6 months down the road? Im saying scotty can replace his every week just to be safe and it wouldnt affect him thats all. That said, profile does sponsor a few four peggers.
