New: super lightweight disc brake hubs by M5

June 25th, 2008To the top

Currently fiercely tested by specialists, later available for everyone

New: super lightweight disc brake hubs by M5Never done before anywhere in the world: disc brake hub set (front) of less than 100 grammes. With just 99 grammes we now have the most lightweight disc brake hub in the world. Incidentally, also one of the most rigid hubs ever too, thanks to the large diameter of the hub housing. Furthermore we introduced a rather revolutionary disc placement: the six cut out, dirt collecting "lobes" are completely absent.
The bearings have an extra seal by means of two rubber rings around the 15 mm hollow axles. This extra sealing provides an even longer lifespan of the bearings.
For an extra price of just 50 euro (incl Vat) ceramic bearings vouch for an even longer lifespan. The silicon-nitride bearings pulvarize pretty much every they encounter!

Like al our lightweight parts, the hubs are laser engraved with the M5 logo, and have been anodised black or red.

For now only available in 32 hole version, no sooner than the end of August 2008.

This set of hubs combines excellently with those splendid, newly designed 40 mm high ATB rims by M5!

New 26 inch (ETRTO 559) carbon double front fork with V-brake pivots developedTo enable an even lighter end result of our recumbents with 26 inch (ETRTO 559) front wheel, we have been developing for the last months a new type of carbon front fork.
The fork is suitable for all Titanium and Cr-Mo models with 26 inch front fork and the M5 Carbon High Racer. It's an M5 design double front fork, connected to a carbon 1 1/8 threadless head tube. We have chosen for the aeroshape comparable to the earlier developed 28 inch (ETRTO 622) front fork for the High Racer.
The V-brake pivots flow into the surface of the fork smoothly, thus avoiding the use of excess material.

The weight of this highly stable 100% carbon MTB fork is just 545 grammes, being one of the lightest of it's type. The used type is carbon is 12 D in matted finish. Estimated availability mid-January 2008. Price will be equal to the 20 and 28 inch version.
