Woodman’s had some slick products in the past, things like the coolest cadence magnets we’ve ever seen, and this he had a few more treats in store at Eurobike.
At the front of the bike is his new 3mm dust cap, putting your stem right on top of the bearings. Compared to his other heights, it brings your riding position to new lows. His other options include various heights to reduce the number of loose spacers needed. Close up of that and more below…
It’ll fit his integrated headsets.
He’s also added simple pressfit bottom bracket to the mix, sans center column to save weight and keep it simple. 76g on our scale.
Ever have chainring bolts come loose and ruin your ride? These can be torqued down to 12nm and come in colors!
His ARSL rear hubs get a new preload adjuster and reinforced non-drive spoke seat flange.
Simply loosen the set screw and set the preload where you want it, then tighten back down.
There’s also a new lightweight drive ring for the hubs that saves 12g. If memory serves, it’s titanium and should be plenty durable, just really expensive for the savings.
So far, most of the hookless rims we’ve seen are carbon, which allows for an easier, stronger construction method. Woodman’s introducing it on his new Rondo AT alloy rims.
