Sweet! This premium internally geared hub eliminates the need for complicated drivetrain parts. Its internal 14 speed design yields a 526% gear range equivalent to a normal MTB drivetrain.
The Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 has been developed for both pros and performance oriented hobby cyclists who can appreciate it because of its reliability, perfect single gear ratios, wide range of gears, low maintenance and easy operation; its weight and efficiency are ideal even for pro racing.
The sealed gearbox ensures reliability and durability even under the toughest conditions. The even increments of 13.6% between gears make it possible to ride continuously at peak performance. The overall range makes sure that you always have access to the right gear regardless of situation. Pure fun is guaranteed.
The SPEEDHUB 500/14 is operated by a twist shifter which shifts simply by pulling separate cables up or down. The indexing of the shifting lies not in the shifter as with common designs, but inside the hub. There is no wear on the indexing system nor need to adjust it.
this is a great hub and it has 14 gears in it even though you think your bike has 24 or 29 or whatever gears it doesn't because there are repeats like 3/1 and 1/3 are the same gears along with others. great product and well worth the 1.27k excellent!
This wheel hub costs more than some decent bikes. I waited a very long time before following through on purchasing this hub. It's everything I'd ever hoped, and more.
The gear range is massive. The maintenance is minimal. The efficiency is better than my (neglected) derailleurs. The reliability is legendary. I f***ing love my Rohloff. I can't believe they aren't more common on high-dollar bikes...actually, I can't believe no one else is making a viable competitor. Afline's are crap, and SRAM is discontinuing all IGH production.
Anyway, you will not be disappointed. The price seems high until you unbox the beautiful thing. Once you hold the hub in your hands, and read all of the amazing documentation, you understand the price tag. The care and design that goes into each Rohloff hub is something that isn't seen much these days. They're hand-manufactured in a first-world nation, and designed to last a lifetime. Their documentation actually favors independent builders & owner-servicing. Rohloff AG will act quickly to un-strand you if your hub fails on tour. I can't even put into words how satisfied I am.
This is an example of a company that just does everything right. Buy this hub.
