SONdelux SL Wide-Body Generator Hub
The generator hub we use on our own bikes. The connector-less SL system makes wheel changes easy: No more wires! Using a special dropout on your fork, the electrical connection is automatic: One pole is routed through the axle (and your frame), the other through an insulated ring that mates with a corresponding, insulated ring on your dropout. Simply insert the wheel, and the light is connected. Even better, with no exposed wires, there is no risk of wires breaking or connectors coming off.
The Delux Wide-Body features extra-wide flange spacing (68 mm vs. 50 mm) and a steel axle for a much stronger wheel. This hub is strong enough for off-road racing and even tandems. The internals are the same as all SON Delux generator hubs: lightweight and with ultra-low resistance.
We also offer rims and spokes to build a complete wheel with this hub.
Note: The SL system requires a fork with special dropouts that feature a built-in connecting plate. This generator hub is also available with standard connectors to fit all bikes.
Pro Tip: The barrels of some SON hubs are wrapped with blue tape. This protects the hub from getting scratched when the spokes are inserted. Remove the tape after you’ve laced the wheel!
