Spacer Sturmey Archer with contact surface for deep groove ball bearing and guide for brake plate 16mm HMW539
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. If a covering needs to be changed due to intensive use, you will find all the necessary spare parts in our range. The hub runs on easily exchangeable industrial bearings and can be used with both front suspension and non-suspension steering knuckles. In addition, with the Sturmey Archer hub dynamo, you have the option of accommodating your power generation in the sealed hub in addition to the front wheel brake. This means that two important functions of your recumbent trike are always reliable and ready for use, regardless of the weather conditions.
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.
