For those of you who recognise the value of a high quality front dynamo hub, the name Wilfried Schmidt is probably familiar. This German company produces the renown SON Nabendynamo hub. This high end dynamo hub went into production in 1995 and the line has continued to expand since then. They now offer hubs for just about any front wheel combination needed, including 2 disc friendly models, a 12mm thru axle model, all the way to special hubs for Brompton owners. They also produce hubs for both 110mm "boost" width and for 150mm Fat bikes. A few years ago at the annual Paris bike show I got the chance to see their new models. They had dissected hubs on display that showed the internal details, highlighting their use of top quality materials & design.
Along with their impressive dynamo hubs, they offer equally high quality LED head lamps that have been developed in tandem with their hubs. Super bright even at lower speeds, the Edelux ll head lamps keep the road very well lit.
Cognoscenti Cycles is excited to be able to offer these incredible hubs and lights.
If your considering a front dynamo hub for your touring or audax bike, your city commuting bike or your off road machine, take a good look at what is on offer from Schmidt! Our distributor is in the USA so we should be able to get whatever you need in a reasonable amount of time if we don't presently have it in stock.
