Velotechnic DS-1 & DS-1D hubs are designed around the attributes of Strength, Stiffness, Stability and Smoothness to give the best riding experiences while being affordable. Designed & engineered in Singapore, they are created with our own exclusive molds and manufactured in Taiwan.
Front hub designs are relatively simple and straightforward compared to the rear hub. However, they are responsible and tasked for a front wheel’s stiffness and stability. These qualities can be felt during cornering, hard sprints or off-the-saddle climbs.
The DS1 front hub has a 15mm diameter hardened axle while the DS-1D has a 17mm diameter thru’ axle, with high stiffness. The distances & the P.C.D. of the flanges provide wide bracing spoke angles for lateral wheel stiffness and stability. Precise hub bearing adjustments can be achieved with the pre-load threaded collar to optimise bearing stiffness. Lastly, the DS front hub also encompass a thicker hub shell for added strength.
The rear hub in a bicycle wheel takes the brunt of the load so we have to consider in depth how a rear hub (and wheel) handles different forces laterally & radially with high torques along with the rider’s weight. While a welterweight figure for any bicycle parts is always considered attractive; however for a rear hub, first it needs to be functional and possess excellent properties of Strength, Stiffness, Stability and Smoothness It should not be pointlessly light while missing all these considerations.
