Dynamo hub upgrades for your Skyelander

£80.00Price

Your Skyelander will be fitted with an XT front hub, but if you'd like to upgrade it to a dynamo hub, please choose between the two we have an offer. We have a choice of the the Schmidt Son 28 dynamo hub or the Shutter Precision PV8 dynamo hub as upgrades on your Skyelander. N.B. These can only be purchased when buying a Skyelander

Dynamo hub
  • The Schmidt SON 28 dynamo hub

     

    The SON 28 is bike tourers' most highly regarded dynamo hub. We recommend the SON 28 when more light is required at low speed or when other devices are to be operated or their batteries recharged. 

     

    The bigger the wheel size the faster you'll need to be going to get your dynamo hub to produce power. As the Skyelander has a 700c wheel size this is where the Schmidt SON 28 hub has the edge over the Shutter Precision PV8.

    Shutter Precision PV8

     

    As we've said our recommended dyno hub for the Skyelander is the SON 28 due to the 700c wheel size on the Skyelander. However if you plan to use your Skyelander for faster touring then the PV8 will be a good value option. These 3w dynamo hubs are very well designed and engineered for touring. A very good small, light and efficient dynamo hub.
