SKYELANDER ROHLOFF DISC
The Skyelander Rohloff Disc is the same as the Skyelander Rohloff but with disc brakes.
Frame and fork
The frame will come with sliding inserts that are Rohloff & Disc specific for the rear dropouts. The fork will have disc specific Reynolds 631 fork blades with an IS disc mount.
The bike will be equipped with TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes.
The TRP Spyke is a dual sided mechanical brake where both pads actuate giving an even and precise clamping force. This translates into even pad wear.
The pads can be adjusted easily and independently with a 3mm allen key, as well as a simple cable barrel adjuster to adjust both the pads simultaneously.
On the Skyelander Disc we pair the Spyres with 160mm front and rear rotors.
Shimano (short pull) levers with compressionless cable housing ensure a quick and positive response.
On the Skyelander Rohloff disc we use the Ryde Andra 321 32 hole rims. The Rohloff hub is disc specific enabling the rotor to be mounted to it. The front hub is a Shimano XT 32 hole for a centre-lock rotor, unless you’re upgrading to a dynamo hub
