TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2017

Beyond ordinary hubs, the HS-R049 can be built in 3 ways: straight-pull+J-bend, all straight pull, or all J-bend spokes, which are suitable for all terrain conditions and meet customer needs for different spoke usages. The HS-R049 features a patented design, straight-pull and J-bend spokes share the holes. With J-bend and straight-pull spoke for 1st & 2nd layers, the double structure combines the features from spokes for better stiffness and malleability. Once a spoke fractures, it can prevent excessive distortion and provide better security for riders. Moreover, the rest of the milling holes can help lessen its weight.
