4 reasons why kindernay IS the best internal gear hub out there
Internal gear hubs have been used for bikes since the 20th century and have proven to be an incredibly effective and reliable alternative to external gears ever since.
Initially created in Salford, England in 1896, internal gears have been tremendously improved in their technological offerings and capabilities.
The Kindernay XIV is at the forefront of internal gear hubs and guarantees outstanding performance for each individual ride; it is the first multispeed gear hub with full-length standard 12 mm Through-Axles.
You wonder what further differentiates the Kindernay XIV and why should you change to the best internal gear hub currently offered on the market? We have gathered four compelling reasons which distinguish the Kindernay XIV from other, both internal and external, gears currently available.
1. BETTER SHIFTING
The Kindernay XIV promises to facilitate and create an outstanding shifting performance through its instant shift system, especially compared to the typical derailleur systems. With its ability to shift speed under load, you can fully avoid the annoyance of coming to a stop or being in too high of a gear to restart the ride.
The shifting is seamless and requires no pedaling in order change to any gear; once the click is heard, the shift has been completed - all that with a one-time calibration at the factory. With the Kindernay XIV internal gear hub, biking has really never been more fun!
The Kindernay XIV is incredibly versatile, as it can be fitted to almost any bike of your desire. It is approved for use on the Speed Pedelecs and is the perfect companion for any eMTB, eBike, or modern bike of preference. What is more, the wheels can - with no difficulties - be easily swapped, thanks to the unique Kindernay Swap Cage - an innovative, separate hubshell that allows having several wheelsets without the cost of purchasing a separate gearhub for each of them.
You would think that the versatility has its cost, but the Kindernay XIV proves you wrong. By being almost fully maintenance-free and extremely durable and robust, you do not need to worry about any undesirable interferences for the years to come.
3. SUPERIOr PERFORMANCE
The Kindernay XIV promises superior performance and stands out with a high torque-capability and a 543% gear range between the first and fourteenth gear. The modern axle standard with its 12 mm Thru-Axle, large-diameter clutches, and 24 engagement points, ensures a disruption-free ride experience, anywhere, anytime. And all of this in addition to being ultra-compact and featherily lightweight, with only 1400 grams!
