Further details

Centerlock This disc brake mounting system by Shimano® allows particular simple and fast mounting of the brake disc on the hub. As a result, service costs can be reduced. The multi-tooth profile transmits the resulting braking forces more equally on the hub
E-Thru Axle The tool-free thru-axle system optimizes the strength and load distribution. In addition, the torsion stability is increased to about 15% at 15mm thru axles on the front wheel compared to quick release skewers hubs. The stability thanks to the bigger axle diameter is increased also on the rear wheel.
The axle hub system E-thru Shimano minimizes the distortion, which is especially important on the front wheel together with suspension forks and disc brakes and offers a noticeable stability advantage.
At trekking hubs, a reduced form of the quick-release axle with 8mm diameter on the front wheel is used, because the forces in terms of trekking are also lower.
