For super rapid pick up we have added three extra pawls to the cassette body, staggered by a few degrees, so that instead of 36 engagement points per revolution, they have 72, giving almost instantaneous pick up and good positive ratchet sound. This also protects the pawls from the damaging hammer effects of low pick-ups. This system is further improved by having individual springs on each pawl, unlike the cheaper system of an external spring holding all the pawls together. Thus if one pawl spring breaks the hub continues to operate with slightly reduced efficiency, rather than stopping working altogether.
We also listened to the current trends in the market and made the following changes to the design of the original Aerosilk Plus Hubs. The Rear hub can be quickly changed from a Standard 10mm Quick Release to a 12mm Through Axle Hub. The Front Hub can also be changed from a Standard Quick Release to a 15mm Through Axle. Either hub can be specified as a standard quick release or with the oversized through axles. The relevant parts to convert them from one to the other are also available to purchase separately.
So there we have it. Probably the most dazzling & good looking Disc hub set on the market, which are also amazingly tough, incredibly efficient, super light and are simple and easy to maintain.
Finally, you are buying the ‘Luxury Limo’ of the all mountain hub market but you are only paying ‘Family Saloon Car’ prices. Yes, you would think that the price of such product development would make your eyes water, but our aim as always, is to produce top quality but affordable bicycle parts.
Listen to this feedback from a recent purchaser.
