Fat bikes love winter. Battery-powered lights do not. The cold can suck the juice out of a battery much faster than in the summer, but dynamo hubs can power your lights or electronics all day and night. Trouble is, there weren’t many options for fat bike hubs with dynamos, especially since the spacing kept changing.
Now Shutter Precision has unveiled its new fat bike version of the SP-8X spaced at 150 mm with a thru-axle that will fit on most new fat bikes, including on the RockShox Bluto suspension fork. Shutter Precision specially engineered the hub to get full power from the slower rotational speeds created by the big tires.
The hubs should go on sale in January, though retail pricing has not yet been set.Tweet Print
