Technology

STEVENS S-Lite Aluminium Gabel

S-Lite Aluminium Gabel

So sieht eine moderne Starrgabel heute aus: Die geraden Gabelscheiden und die Gabelkrone sind aus einem Stück geformt – das spart Schweißnähte und garantiert höchste Steifigkeit und Lenkpräzision. Vollwertige Schutzbleche und ein Lowrider-Gepäckträger lassen sich ebenso montieren wie ein eleganter Halter für den Frontscheinwerfer. Die Version mit QR15-Steckachse kann mit einem optionalen Pitlock-System besonders diebstahlsicher gemacht werden. Und dennoch wird die STEVENS S-Lite Aluminium-Gabel auf der Waage ihrem Namen vollauf gerecht.

Integrated Pannier Rack Mount dropout

In collaboration with pannier rack specialists Tubus and Racktime STEVENS' engineers have developed a dropout that also serves as an elegant pannier rack mount. It not only looks fantastic, it also ensures that forces caused by luggage or large amounts of groceries are evenly transmitted inot the frame - resulting in a more stable and safer design.

Even when you can't see the strut that connects the pannier rack to the fender - it is there. The strut runs below the fender and provides - in connection with the rack mounted to the fender - more stability and lateral stiffness.

IQ-X Scheinwerfer

Die Scheinwerfer-Modellreihe IQ-X von Busch+Müller macht es mit ihrer neu entwickelten Lichttechnologie erstmals möglich, mit einem Dynamoscheinwerfer die 100-Lux-Marke zu knacken – und das mit einer sehr breiten, weiten und homogenen Großflächen-Ausleuchtung der Straße. Die kleinere, elegantere XS-Version bringt es immer noch auf stolze 70 Lux. Für rekordverdächtig hell gleißendes Licht (150 Lux!) sorgt hingegen der IQ-X E-Scheinwerfer, den wir am Lenker unseres schnellen S-Pedelecs Triton 45 anbringen.

QR15-Steckachse vorn

Die „15“ steht für den Achsdurchmesser, das „QR“ für „Quick Release“, also Schnellspanner – und zusammen für die funktionellste Methode, das Vorderrad in der (Feder-)Gabel zu verankern. Die Vorteile sind bestechend: hohe Steifigkeit, präzise Bremsscheiben-Positionierung und kinderleichte Bedienung. Also stattet STEVENS fast alle Mountainbikes und sogar die hochwertigsten Trekking-, Crossbikes und Pedelecs damit aus. Vor allem bei den 29“-MTBs wird sogar noch die Einbaubreite erhöht – von 100 auf 110 mm, das ist noch steifer.

STEVENS Steckachs-Sicherung von Pitlock erhältlich

Steckachs-Systeme bringen mehr Seitensteifigkeit und eliminieren auch noch das letzte Risiko, dass das Laufrad zwischen Gabel und Laufrad verrutschen kann. So passen auch Bremsscheibe und -sattel immer perfekt schleiffrei zueinander. Für die Steckachs-Systeme bei STEVENS Rädern mit K1-Starrgabeln gibt es extra von Pitlock optional eine Steckachssicherung inklusive 15-mm-Steckachse aus Aluminium, Einsteckbuchse, PIT-Schlüssel und Codekarte.

Tapered Seat Tube

The seat tube tapers from top to bottom. At the top it fits a slim 27.2mm seatpost that offers some flex and therefore increases comfort especially when riding over rough ground. At the bottom the large diameter nicley flows into the bottom bracket shell and downtube to provide great stiffness and drivetrain efficiency.

Hydroforming

Using water or oil pressure aluminium tubes are transformed from their original round shape into their ideal shape determined by STEVENS engineers to perfectly withstand any load without any weight penalty. Riders of allround bikes and pedelecs will benefit from a better stability caused by hydroforming even when they are touring with heavy luggage.

Tapered Steerer / Tapered Headtube

Fork shaft (or steerer tube) and head tube are tapered, meaning their diameter increases from top to bottom resulting in a conical shape. The diameter needs to be bigger at the bottom since this is where higher stress is applied - especially when the bike has a higher total weight due to luggage or an e-drive and battery. Also tapered steerers feature a smoother force transfer (like forces caused by hard braking) to the downtube than forks with a continuous 1 1/8" diameter.

Triple Butted, Double Butted

Meaning a frame tube has three or two different wall thicknesses along its length. Triple butted (TB) is the usual technology with STEVENS high-quality frames.
Tubes with different wall thicknesses are optimally adjusted to certain ways of manufacturing or to withstand specific loads. Where the highest loads occur or where tubes are welded, walls are the thickest. Butted tubes allow frame weight to be lower by several hundred grams.

Smooth Welded

Additional step in welding. The first, rippled weld, typical for aluminium, is covered with a second smoother weld. This not only improves looks but also lowers the risk of notches in this spot, which makes the frames more durable.

Hydraulic Disc Brakes (Trekking)

There is no more reliable brake system than hydraulic disc brakes - that is why we strongly advice everyone, who is riding their cross, trekking- or city bike 12 months a year to choose one of our models with the „DISC“ suffix. Brake power is easy to modulate and does not fade a bit in the wet. Also the brakes are almost maintenance-free. And your local STEVENS dealer will gladly explain to you what you need to take care of when removing and re-installing a wheel
