New KHE BB-cup - AFFIX® bush system
New KHE BB-cup - AFFIX® bush system Some high tech news of KHE:
At the moment we are testing a new kind of BB-cup which features the „patent pending” AFFIX® bush system and the proven quality of igus® bush bearings. These bush bearings, named iglidur® are principally used in the industry, primarily on permanently running applications at high temperatures.
The AFFIX® bush system features strong alloy cups to get the most resistant end-product. One alloy cup including the iglidur® bush bearing weights only 36g/ 0.079lbs. Compared to a regular MidBB (including spacers), the AFFIX bush system saves 120g/ 0.265lbs, while it´s more durable and maintanance-effortless.
We plan to offer the AFFIX® bush system for Mid BB, Spanish BB & Euro BB. A pic of the new system assembled on a bike: click here.
Ok, if you have problems trying to figure out the difference between iglidur and igus and affix then the point is: you can save another 100g with those cool new bearing ;-)
