Completely re-designed for 2016, the KH-Schlumpf geared hub adds an entirely new dimension to your riding. The second gear increases versatility by increasing your top speed without losing any climbing torque or maneuverability in first gear. Designed for both on- and offroad use. Hand made in Switzerland in collaboration with Schlumpf Innovations.

New for 2016:

  • Standard hub (100 mm) and wide hub (125 mm) models now available
  • Standard model is compatible with the External Disc Brake (EDB) standard
  • Wide model is compatible with hub-mount disc brakes
  • Improved bearing and flange durability
  • Axle bolts are now compatible with larger 8 mm hex key
  • New torque block (small protruding nub) in the knurled bearing securely locks it within the frame bearing housing

Notes:

  • The 2016 Standard KH/Schlumpf hub is compatible with all KH frames produced since 2012.  Minor modification may be required to the bearing housings of other frames to fit the torque block.
  • The 2016 Wide KH/Schlumpf hub is only compatible with frames designed to fit 125 mm hubs and is not compatible with standard disc rotors. It is supplied with a disc rotor to fit the hub.
