Syntace developed and manufactured.
Finest turning and machining, inconspicuous appearance, but with superior inner qualities.
Spur gearing: all or none! The name and the crisp sound already lead to the presumption: the freewheel mechanism of this Syntace hub will withstand more than others. The spur gear mechanism principle which we have further refined, guarantees that force transmitting teeth can’t engage individually and as a result are overloaded. In exactly that moment when one tooth wants to engage, all teeth inevitably engage in synchronization.
The 36 tooth, in Germany precision machined high strength spur gears, are driven by four spiral springs. The result in the rough every day mtb use: the German uphill master Jan Lämmel has been using the same rear hub in his Liteville 301 since fall 2011. Without any maintenance, just like the hub in the rear wheel of World Trails Champion Thomas Öhler. Just for comparison’s sake: conventional pawl freewheel bodies are completely destroyed within four weeks of being in one of these boys’ bikes - regardless of the number of pawls. Trial riders - not to be confused with trail riders - know exactly what is meant here.
Winter resilient Even with icy cold winter temperatures the Syntace Hi-Torque MX shows no engagement denials or signs of “chain-push” issues with consequent chain wrap attacks. No slippage, and long lifespan spur gears. In Europe - as opposed to sunshine states such as California - for every committed mountain biker an absolute must, as we believe.
