The installation keyways on Shimano/SRAM cassettes often bite into the softer aluminum material on the freehub body, making them difficult to install and remove. edco’s patent pending Antibite system incorporates three hardened steel inserts on the feeehub body, preventing damage to the soft aluminum.
9K-8mm TWILL WEAVE
A proprietary rim construction material developed by edco for use in rim construction. 9K Edco-Aerosport-Simplon-105-and-Fluela-85-carbon-wheels06-600x400refers to the 9,000 strands of carbon fiber specified per tow, or bundle. The fibers are then hand woven into a unique 8mm twill pattern. Extremely strong and stiff, the material helps prevent any sidewall damage from propagating through the rim structure – at a fiber areal weight (FAW) of only 150 grams. 9K-8mm Twill Weave is used in our SuperSport and AeroSport range.
ILT BRAKING SYSTEM
Our Integrated Low Temperature (ILT) braking system is used on all edco carbon and composite rims. Layered 3K carbon; high-temperature, wear-resistant resin; a proprietary surface finish; and the specially developed Cesso Red brake pads provide a high coefficient of friction while maintaining stable temperatures across a variety of conditions. Developed as part of the ILT braking system, our 3K carbon rim bed and brake track provides a stable platform for the ultimate carbon rim – a strong foundation that performs well under the temperature extremes rim braking creates.Edco tech 2

RIM DRILLING MACHINE
drillingIn order to more precisely drill spoke holes in deep carbon rims, edco, in cooperation with Total Support Group (TSG), developed a 7-axis CNC rim drilling machine that drills from the center out. This method ensures that spoke holes will always be at the perfect location and the correct angle, eliminating unnecessary tension that can lead to spontaneous spoke breakage.
EDCO HUB BEARINGS
Rather than use standard industrial bearings in its hubs, edco has developed its own bearing specification to provide years of trouble-free, high-performance use. Lubrication, ball and raceway tolerances, seal design: everything is considered and tested – both in the lab and in the real world – before they’re assembled by hand at our factory in The Netherlands.

bearings5-POINT SEALING SYSTEM
Every edco hub benefits from our 5-point sealing system: (1) bearing lubrication type and fill percentage, (2) a frictionless inner seal, (3) a low-friction outer seal, (4) hydrophobic nanocoating, and (5) a nitrile rubber seal to close the system.

Swifty Scooters – putting it all together

SwiftyONEs with all the enhancements is FINALLY here. Not only have new stocks reached our shores, we are getting the privilege  to meet the man behind Swifty Scooters – Jason Iftakhar

So what have we got in store for Singapore?

2016 SwiftyOne Preorders

3 beautiful colours and 1 special edition to choose from. A larger air filled tire gives the SwiftyOne unparalleled ride and comfort.

We have witnessed the growth of the kick scooter as an increasingly popular and fun form of transport for adults, whether it be commuting or urban leisure.  There are plenty of scooters out there to choose from, some which look like kids toys, some larger scooters with hard wheels, and some which fold or dismantle – and then there is  SwiftyONE!

Lets have a look at SwiftyONE’s key features.

Large 16 inch pneumatic wheels

Swifty’s scooters all have 16 inch pneumatic wheels, we believe that this is the secret to an enjoyable and adventurous journey, unhindered by terrain. Anything from a twig to a uneven flagstone could cause an accident or simply slow you down, but not with the SwiftyONE – you just keep on rolling. Also the smaller the wheels, the more rolling resistance, with 16” pneumatic wheels you can cruise, coast and freewheel – also larger wheels mean that kick for kick you will get more propulsion.

SwiftyONE folding mechanism

A folding scooter is an advantage if you use public transport as part of your journey, or have limited storage space. We believe that the unique folding mechanism of SwiftyONE is unrivalled. There are similar sized adult scooters with larger wheels, (like the Mibo, Yedoo & Kickbike), but nothing that folds like SwiftyONE.

Often the folding mechanism becomes a weak-point in the strength of a scooters frame, rattling as you scoot along, but this is not the case with SwiftyONE. The quality and craftsmanship of the mechanism on our scooter means that the frame remains strong, it’s a feature SwiftyONE owners love.

Quality design and engineering

Have you heard the motto, buy cheap, buy twice? SwiftyONE is one of the more expensive scooters on the market, but with good reason. The build quality is excellent, nothing rattles or shakes. The folding features work perfectly and are built to last.

And a special visitor – Jason himself!

We get to hear from him, his story, his ups and downs and a design entrepreneur on the 5th May at one of our Dealer’s location.

Goodordering bags – expanded lines for 2016 has arrived

Goodordering is a small independent company run out of a flat on top of a bike shop in Hackney, East London. They have started off by designing a capsule range of bags that fuse function with retro fashion. The range is inspired by Japanese school bags and 80s retro travel bags. Goodordering loves Scandinavia, the late 70s and 80s, block colours and Velcro! You can see some more of their inspiration here.  Each bag has been designed with technological gadgets and gizmos in mind, with padded compartments and pockets of varying shapes and sizes. At the same time there is no compromise in quality, the bags are water resistant, hard-wearing and versatile.

Back in Sep 2015, we brought in 2 models. Sales and feedback has been very positive. This week, we will be launching SIX more models in Singapore at at FIVE stores.

Respro pollution masks

respro (1)

Yes the haze has gone – That’s just fantastic for all but owning a pollution mask that is washable, looks good and have replaceable filters for different PM situations that you can carry with you anywhere. That’s what owning a Respro is about – Protection for your health and lungs.

Allergy Mask – $60
NiteSight Mask (Reflective) – $60
City Mask – $50
Sportsta Mask $70
Cinqro Mask – $100
FB-1 Mask – $75

City maskThe City™ anti-pollution mask offers screening from the inhalation of nuisance dusts and odours associated with vehicle exhaust emissions. The filter (DACC) used in the mask, has been specifically developed for filtering a wide variety of nuisance dusts and odours commonly found in major cities.  The two Techno™ exhalation valves allow unwanted heat, carbon dioxide and water vapour out ensuring comfort as well as function. Rated PM10.0

respro cyclist2The Respro® Sportsta™ mask combines Hepa-Type filtration performance associated with sub-micron pollutants such as pollen and other irritant dusts, with a lightweight Neotex aerated mask. The 1-3-37Sportsta™ mask offers maximum ventilation without sacrificing filtration. To maximize rider performance, state of the art Powa™ valves are a standard feature and a must for all who ride to their limits. I just love the mesh design.

elite-valve-pack-black-silver__large-800x800

The Sportsta™ mask is usable in all outdoor sports pursuits where high levels of non-toxic dusts are present.

Not only are Respro lab certified, the are a team that looks into how better and wider can they offer products that truly protect you.

The Cinqro™ mask is the most recent addition to the Respro®range. It focuses on the ‘urban trainer’, the ‘home runner’ or cinqro-mask-white-with-maskthe multi-sport end user where breathing rates are typically higher than your average commuter.

The two new Powa™ Elite valves on the Cinqro™ mask allow for faster air flow when working out at elevated breathing patterns, i.e. when you are giving it the beans from A to B. This equates to less back-pressure, less dampness in the filter, improved filtration and lower inhalation resistance, which in turn leads to improved comfort and performance.

fb-1 firemanNotable is the FB-1™

Developed in conjunction with the St Austell Watch of the UK Fire Brigade Services, the FB-1™ mask is the Firefighters mask of choice. The FB-1™ dustmask is now provided to firefighters all over the world to protect them from contamination in circumstances where breathing apparatus would not normally be considered or used. The FB-1™ mask and its filter have been designed and
manufactured to EN149 (European Standard for filtering face pieces) and is capable of filtering respirable sub-micron particulates.allergy

Luminari is focusing her efforts on 3 areas:

Outdoor sports: Cycling, Running and Public Safety. We carry the Allergy, Sportsta, City. Cinqro and FB-1 masks.

USPs for Respro:

  1. The Neoprene makes it washable so no smelly sweat stained smells from perspiration
  2. Replaceable filters for different particulate addressing PM10 to PM0.3Bj air
  3. Upgradable valves for those activities that required you to breathe harder and faster

KEEP one in your travel bag especially if you have to travel to polluted cities. Dhaka

A Quick Guide to Knee Pain

Just like everything else, the bicycle has to fit the rider’s anatomy. If we ride without adjusting the bicycle to our needs, it could result in knee pain, which is a common issue with riders.knee_pain_man_holding1

The 4 most common causes of knee pains are due to improper saddle height or position, have a crank that is too long for the rider, rider pushing excessively high gears, or poor foot alignment.

Here are a few things you can try out before heading to the doctor’s.
If the pain is in the front of the knee (Anterior Pain):

Pushing too high gears          ->              Lower gear, and increase cadenceknee-anatomy-diagram

Saddle too low or far forward             ->              Raise seat or move seat back

Foot too far forward on the pedal              ->           Move foot back to have toes in line with the pedal

Crank arms too long         ->             Shorten crank arms by 2.5 cm
If the pain is in the back of the knee (Posterior Pain):

Saddle too high or far back          ->          Lower seat, or move seat forward

Too much pedal float             ->           Limit float to 6 – 8 degrees
If the pain is in the inner side of the knee (Medial Pain):

Incorrect foot position on pedal (toes pointed out)          ->             Narrow foot position by adjusting foot parallel to bicycle

Too little pedal float          ->              Limit float to 6 – 8 degrees

If the pain is in the outer side of the knee (Lateral Pain):

Incorrect foot position on pedal (toes pointed in)          ->              Widen foot position by adjusting foot parallel to bicycle
Too little pedal float           ->             Limit float to 6 – 8 degrees

Good habits to adopt to prevent injury – warm up for at least 30 mins, stretch after riding, and consider taking a Glucosamine supplement to promote joint flexibility.

Time Pedals – Many say they are the best in their class

For TIME, performance and biomechanics are one and the same. Customisable pedals
