The simplest way to go faster is to ride on a good pair of wheels and the hubs are the crucial element. The Velotechnic DS1 is engineered around attributes of Strength, Stability, Stiffness and Smoothness – for the best riding experience and making quality affordable to more riders.
Velotechnic DS1 road hubs for rim brake road bikes are designed around the attributes of Strength, Stiffness, Stability and Smoothness to give the best riding experiences while being affordable.
Designed and engineered in Singapore, and manufactured in Taiwan.
Front road hub designs are relatively simple and straightforward compared to the rear road 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 has a 15mm 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.
