I bent a zombie hub at rollerjam during the EWNB event weekend. Enough to make it flat in that spot.

Hubs are easy to bend, they aren't that strong. A good impact and its game over for them.

Normal conditions, yea, its not gonna bend and an acle wont break before a hub will. Your comparing steel to aluminum


Edit..

Darkjester, just because she plays derby or specific positions in it doesn't mean she's had a instance that would bend a hub. Most people don't skate with enough force to do so, or ever encounter a collision that would.
