KINDERNAY VII® IS THE NEW BENCHMARK FOR E-BIKE GEAR HUBS.
- Oslo, September 2021 - Innovative Norwegian internal gear-hub maker Kindernay wins the prestigious Eurobike Award 2021. An independent panel of expert judges recognizes the newly launched Kindernay VII internal gear hub as “the new benchmark for e-bike gear hubs”.
The Eurobike Awards is one of the leading international design awards for companies in the bike and mobility industry. New, innovative, and forward-looking products are assessed and evaluated by an independent panel of expert judges.
New benchmark for e-bike gear hubs
Weighing in at just 1750 grams of total system weight, including a VII gearhub, Onesie shifter, and SWAP32/36 shell – it is the lightest high-performance internal gear system on the market, within a few hundred grams of a standard external 1X derailleur drivetrain.
It is also the widest range 7-speed internal gear hub on the market, and with an input torque capacity of 160Nm it is the strongest gear hub, guaranteed to handle even the most powerful electric mid-motor systems, making it the choice of e-bike OEM product managers worldwide.
Kindernay Founder & CEO Christian Antal, is thankful: “On behalf of my whole team, it was a great and joyful surprise to receive this attention, after years of work bringing the product to launch. We aim to set the standard for performance, robustness, and reliability in gear systems for electric bikes, and solve the supply chain issue”.
Great impact potential:
Customers are increasingly becoming aware of the unique aspects of Kindernay gear systems and their potential for impact on the industry supply chain. About the Kindernay VII, they have said:
