Sturmey Archer brake plate for Sturmey Archer drum brake.
The advantage of drum brakes is that the system is completely sealed and protected from external influences. Water and dirt have no effect on braking performance and the system remains virtually maintenance-free. In case a brake pad needs to be changed due to intensive use, you will find all the necessary spare parts in our shop. The hub runs on easily exchangeable industrial bearings and can be used with both front suspension and non-suspension steering kingposts.
Sturmey Archer is a traditional manufacturer of gear hubs for bicycles. The foundation for the company was laid in Nottingham, England, in 1902 when Sir Frank Bowden commissioned the teacher Henry Sturmey and the engineer James Archer to produce shifting hubs for his Bowden bicycles together. After a long and successful company history, the company was taken over by SunRace in 2002 and production was relocated to Taiwan, which further increased the quality of the products.
