GW is extremely excited about the Eurobike show that will take place between September 4 and 7th in Friedrichshafen, Germany. This year we will have several new products on display, including a complete line of headsets with an innovative design and two very interesting hub lines.
We have taken our years of experience manufacturing headsets for leading brands in the bike industry and developed a new headset design that allows for lower top cover heights while increasing resistance to water entry.
In addition to our new headset, we will be launching an extremely cost-competitive hubset that will ship both from our factory in soon-to-open Spain and from our existing facility in Taiwan. We will also be debuting a ring drive hubset that uses round gears rather than a pawl and ratchet system. This system is robust enough for e-mountain bikes and light enough for road bikes.
We will have a full range of samples at the show so be sure to book your meeting with us so we can show you all the details. If you don’t already have a sales contact, please email us at email@example.com or contact us via the form on the About page of this website.
GW continues to be a leading supplier of thru axles and the Switch compatible thru axle and levers are the most popular.
Like all our thru axles, Switch system axles are machined from ultra-strong 7075 alloy and tested to ensure they pass rigorous strength testing.
What’s unique about the Switch system is its removeable lever. A single lever can be fitted to a bike and used to tighten or loosen a front or rear thru axle. When not in use, the lever can be held securely and silently in the thru axle or can be stowed in a jersey pocket.
There are several lever shape options to choose from and levers can be equipped with additional features like valve core removers, bottle openers, or Torx or hex wrenches.
GW has been hard at work on creating a new, mountain bike specific hub that is strong enough to handle the requirements of the most demanding riders.
The M-Max series of hubs is made up of the M17-3 and M17-5 hub shells built around an oversized 17x12mm axle. By increasing the diameter of the rear axle, we were able to significantly stiffen and strengthen the hub.
The M-Max hubs are equipped with a full set of high-quality cartridge bearings to ensure smooth spinning with minimal maintenance requirements. To make servicing easier, these hubs are equipped with end caps that can be removed without tools.
