James is a huge AZUB fan and we have published an article about his recumbent travels already. He has a second AZUB now which is the Ti-FLY 26 with front titanium suspension and it is the very best example of our EPIC level of custom builds. The trike has not only custom coloring, but also Rohloff 14 speed gear hub paired with double crankset in the front. The front derailleur is Shimano XTR Di2 with electronic shifting. James wanted electronic shifting for Rohloff as well, but there isn’t any available now on the market except for the version for Bosch e-motors.
The trike is also unique because we have used the new SON XS-M 15 hub dynamo for trikes for the first time here. It is based on the SON 28 for 15mm through-axle and the axle itself is 2x stronger than the commonly used 12mm axle is. The dynamo has also lower drag. Also the distance between flanges is almost the same of the hub on the other wheel. This is simply much better hub dynamo for trikes!
