Kindernay Velvet Oil
Kindernay is the first internal gear hub accommodating a 12mm through-bolt, yielding a total of 14 speeds out of just three simple planetary series. It is the lightest full-range 14 speed gear hub on the market, weighing just under 1400 grams.
The Kindernay Engineering Design philosophy ensures that every single subcomponent is designed for optimal performance as a unified part of the complete Kindernay drivetrain. The result is a fully integrated, perfectly tuned and patented system. No Kindernay part is designed without taking into consideration how it interacts with the other parts of the system.
This 14-speed internal gear hub offers a gear range that is wider than the most popular mountain bike derailleur systems, and it will run for hundreds of thousands of miles requiring nothing but an annual oil change.
This reputation for reliability and ease of use has made the Kindernay VII and XIV natural choices for dedicated commuters and long-range touring riders. It’s more than capable of handling the torque of an e-bike or tandem and pairs beautifully with a belt system like that from Gates Carbon Drive. Shifts can be made while stationary or while pedaling, and riders can shift through a handful of gears with one single movement of the hydraulic thumb shifter.
If you’re looking for a reliable all-weather gearing system, Kindernay is an obvious choice. Our expertise and full stock of replacement parts is unparalleled in the industry. Cycle Monkey is your home for all things Kindernay.
