What the experts say about Rohloff

Per Dana Lieberman, President of Bent Up Cycles and Bacchetta Bikes, "We have been building recumbents with Rohloff hubs for 20 years. In that time, we have never experienced or heard of any sort of failure. So we are delighted to now be working directly with Rohloff so we can use these amazing hubs on our Bacchetta recumbents."

The internet is replete with stories of riders covering amazingly long distances using the Rohloff Speedhub. What started as a great tool for cross-country mountain bike racing has now become the go-to for expedition cyclists worldwide.

Rohloff on Bacchettas

All of our aluminum bikes are available with the Rohloff, including our newest Pronto line of e-assist recumbents. We've confirmed that this drivetrain will easily handle the extra torque loading from the Bafang M510 motor!

Easy shifting at all times

Shift at a standstill or while climbing under a moderate load...the Rohloff will do it all.

Wide range of gears

Gear range

With a 526% range of gears, you get the same range as a traditional 3x9 drivetrain without the complexity and overlap of traditional derailleurs.

Low maintenance

Rohloff lube

These hubs define low maintenance. No adjustments necessary. Just easily change the hub oil every 3000 miles for exceptional performance.
