"As someone who has spent more time that I’d like to admit riding home with fingers crossed because I forgot to charge my lights, I am sold on this system."

   — Eric McKeegan, Bicycle Times

Generator hubs provide light when you need it. No batteries to charge, no worries about running out of juice. Simply turn a switch, and your lights come on.

Schmidt Maschinenbau has been the pioneer of generator hubs. The latest SON Delux hub is lighter, has less resistance and lasts longer than any other generator hub.

The “Wide-Body” model has widely spaced flanges (68 mm vs. 50 mm) and a steel axle to make a stronger wheel. Many also prefer the “Wide-Body” for aesthetic reasons, as the wheel fills out the fork more.

Also available in the "connector-less" SL version.

Made in Germany. 5 year warranty.
