For a constant source of power on the road and bike lights that never run out of charge, the SON Dynamo hub should be at the top of your bicycle wish list.
We’ve been testing our SON hubs (with Supernova E3 Pro front lights) for about a year. With some 5,000km of riding under our wheels, it’s fair to say that we’re more than pleased. Our love of the SON hub can be summed up in two main points:
1. Power On Demand – You can now run bike lights and charge your mobile phones, GPS systems and other small gadgets, purely through the power of your legs. It is wonderfully freeing to know that you don’t have to worry about batteries any more.
2. Reliable – These hubs are known to be almost worry-free. They come with a 5 year guarantee and should easily see you through a long bike tour. So far, we haven’t had any issues at all to report.
