    • FIRMtech brakes

    • Reliable hydraulic FIRMtech brakes

      Huge brake power

      The Travel Lite is equiped with hydraulic FIRMtech brakes from Magura. These brakes are strong, durable and 'what's in a name' FIRM, aka powerfull. They brake intensely with lots of feeling and little strenght. Riders with smaller hands and less strong fingers will find them easy to use. Also in wet weather.

    • The Firmtech version destinquishes itself from the standard Magura brake with the mounting on the frame. The brake notches are wellded on the back side of the forks, both front and rear. In this way the brake bites itself into the fork and the brake power ingreases making an emergency stop.

      The brake ciclinders are directly wellded on the frame like a hinge and cannot be adjusted. The benifit for you is that it is not possible to mess up your brakes. Ideal for bikers with two left hands. With a small handle on the lever you can adjust the bite. Changing pads is a piece of cake; open the hinge and pull out the worn pad, click the new one in and close the hinge. Done in a minute or two without tools.

    SON SL Lighting set

    Plugless hub dynamo

    If you choose fot the SON lights, you will get a nice head light, with a broad, clear beam, characteristic for SON head lights. The contacts with the hub dynamo are plugless, which is very convenieunt when you take your wheel out or put it back in.
    We mont the head light on a Santos head light mount, so the head light shines over the tyre and cannot move.

    The SON lights are available in 6 colours, just like the matching hub dynamo and Rohloff speed hub.
