Flo-Torq SSR HD

Flo-Torq SSR HD

Introducing the Flo-Torq Soft Shift Rubber (SSR) HD, the next generation of Mercury Propellers’ Flo-Torq Hub Systems. The Flo-Torq SSR HD is the quietest and smoothest shifting propeller hub system in the market for high horse-powered outboards. In fact, the Flo-Torq SSR HD delivers a 10-19% shift clunk improvement vs. other noise reduction rubber hub systems and a 25%+ improvement vs. solid hub designs.

The Quietest and Smoothest Hub System Ever Created

During shifting events such as when using JoyStick Piloting for Outboards and/or shifting into gear, the Flo-Torq SSR HD rotates both port and starboard - eliminating shift clunk and vibration for quiet and smooth shifting. Once under load, the hub will engage the propeller inner hub, resulting in a solid hub with the ability to transfer the power of 

Flo-Torq SSD HD can be used on all high-horsepower applications such as center console, bass, multispecies, bay/flats, deck, tritoon/pontoon, RIB, and sport boats. It can be used with Mercury propellers Bravo I, Enertia, Enertia ECO, Fury, Revolution 4, Mirage Plus, and Tempest Plus.
