SP found in 2007, based in Taichung, Taiwan. Mass production for digital camera shutter has been launched. Owing to requests from customers for customized optical tilt inspection equipments, we successfully developed user friendly, highly precise and efficient inspection equipments and sold to some of Taiwan top 10 electronic companies. With advanced micro electronic technology, we successfully developed mini shutter for mobile phone application in end of 2007.
In 2008, abnormal weather caused serious disasters all over the world, which can be caused by global warming and global resource abusing. With brain storming for solution to carbon reduction, we planed to join bicycle industry in 2008. Considering our leading electronic mini motor technologies, we started to develop a new, efficient and advanced dynamo for hub application. During the tough developing period, SP design team consistently persisted in its perfection commitment, and successfully created a brand new dynamo invention. This is called polar series alignment dynamo. And of course, we have awarded numerous dynamo patents. In Oct 2008, we cooperated with Formula engineering Inc and announced the first generation dynamo hub. Formula engineering Inc has great reputation and supply hubs to many well known brand customers.
In January, switchable dynamo hub has approved by Germany StVZO. In March, SP has announced 8 series dynamo hub at 2011 Taipei bike show. PV–8 is incredibly only 390g with 72% efficiency at 15km/hr.

The Tour Divide mountain bike race route is one of the most difficult race in the world.
Disc Brake Dynamo Hub From complexity to simplicity
Technology should make life simpler. This innovative hub was devised to render a clean and pure silhouette, attain a low weight and yet demanded a sturdy construction. The hub body was engineered based on two hub shells that rely on an intelligent joining construction. This meticulous design enables the hub to withstand the hefty stresses produced by disc brakes, while preserving a simple, clean and pure appearance. But it is also light. The lightest model we have weights in at a mere 375g. It also has an extraordinary dynamo core built inside. Variety in colors, flexibility in spoke hole configurations and outstanding performance are its advantages for personal, stylish and purpose-built bikes.

Rob Davidson From Australia, cycling enthusiast, 48 years on the planet - quite a few of those spent on various bikes. Lately I've been racing long in 12 and 24 hour mountain bike races and in Bike–Packing events in NZ and further afield.. Last year I completed the Tour Divide and this year I will race it again. I have come to rely on my SP dynamo setup. It provides the light I see by, the GPS that keeps me on track both day and night. The music I listen to through my headphones and it helps me stay in touch with my family by powering my phone. If I pedal it works. Simple – Effective – Reliable – Get one. Rob on Fri, Apr 24, 2015

Centerlock Disc Brake Far more than just another great dynamo hub
To improve the attractiveness of our hub dynamos to a broader audience, we have developed a centerlock version of our 8X series hub dynamo. The PL–8X is ideal for users of centerlock disc brakes and is produced under official license from Shimano. The heart of the PL–8X is the unique dynamo rated 78% efficiency at 15km/h. Not only powerful … the PL–8X is also parsimonious with your physical exertions. Consonant with our design philosophy, its form is pure, simple and aerodynamic. At 410 grams, it is also the lightest QR15 centerlock dynamo hub available anywhere.

Bearing technics The 8X Series dynamo hubs are suitable for cross country mountain biking, but SP cautions that severe riding conditions be avoided with the 8X series hub dynamos. The 8X series hub dynamos cautions against their use for extreme downhill or severe conditions applications. The QR15 thru axle specification for suspension forks imposes a design constraint requiring compatible hubs to employ thinner bearings than standard hubs. This is due to the fact that the 15mm inner diameter of its hollow axle together with the 6 bolt disc brake specification simultaneously constrain both the inner and outer diameters of bearings that can be used in 8X hubs. This thickness is necessarily smaller than that for standard 9mm hub axles. The resulting thinner bearing races as well as smaller individual ball bearings together that the 8X is, by design, incapable of matching the durability of our 8 Series dynamo hubs.
Additionally, unlike standard QR15 hubs, QR15 hub dynamos require electrical output to be transmitted via wires from the internal dynamo to an external connector. Though physically small, this design requirement nevertheless enlarges the inner bearing diameter and thus requiring bearing thicknesses narrower than standard QR15 hubs. Consequently, bearing thickness for QR15 dynamo hub is smaller than standard QR15 hubs. In theory, 15mm suspensions forks together with the QR15 thru axle should be stronger than standard. However, the mechanical design limitations outlined above mean that the 8X Series dynamo hub will be less durable in practice than the 8 Series hubs. In short, where durability is more important than performance, we recommend 8 Series dynamo hubs.
9 Series Dynamo Hub
Innovation is all about making selfâ€“breakthrough Original SP golf size dynamo design concept
Ultraslim Dynamo Hub Innovation is all about making self-breakthrough. Undoubtedly, the previous SP 8 series had established many new records in the field of dynamos, in terms of its size, weight, and efficiency. However, further advancement has always been the goal. As a result, SP 9 series has now successfully challenged the 8 series by achieving unprecedented dynamo characteristics. The SP 9 series, the ULTRASLIM dynamos, presents future technology and is able to provide cyclists with the best dynamo performance. The 9 series has demonstrated an enormous improvement from the preceding series. It is innovative in the sense that it is extremely light with an outstanding performance that will certainly surprise you.
A new dimension of riding comfort Every detail has been meticulously considered to accomplish such an enhancement. The premium dynamo construction offers not only a new dimension of riding comfort, but also a dynamic force inside the hub. In addition to its low resistance and ultraslim size, this new series is unbelievably light in weight and incredible efficient. The unique aerodynamic shape of the hub has been optimized to a golf size, while attaining an unprecedented weight only 299g. All models included in the 9 series are related to the number of 9, especially in regard to weight. For example, SV-9-F is for OLD74mm with a weight of only 299g, and SV-9 is for OLD100mm with a weight only 309g.

Size is for sure an issue to consider. Take dynamos for example, the smaller, the better. To create a small dynamo, advanced technique is always the key element that can help manufacture lighter dynamos with better performance. SP has been devoted in the dynamo evolution - from a baseball size to an egg size and from an egg size to a golf size. As promised, it has always been one of SPâ€™s main goals to challenge itself by making continuous breakthroughs in SP dynamo constructions. SP 9 series presents the perfect integration of cutting-edge technology and prospective ideas, making this series ideal and elegant in equal measure. It is not a miracle or a mystery. It is all about SP commitments. The SP 9 series is a slim and light design, which redefines the dynamo characteristics and makes cycling more comfortable and easier than ever before.

Suitable for all different sized wheels SP 9 Series got the approval from new German StVZO 6V1.5W LED regulation from wheel size 20” to 28“. However, its real output is much higher than 1.5W. From wheel size 400mm(16”) to 535mm(20“): The 9 series output perfectly matches German StVZO 6V3W/20” regulation. As can be seen from the table, from wheel size 400mm(16”) to 535mm(20”), the 9 series output is designed to meet StVZO 6V3W regulation. From wheel size 646mm(26”) to 716mm(28”): According to German StVZO 6V3W regulation, it requires 3V output at a low speed of 5km/h. If the 9 series is set on wheel sizes of 646mm(26”) and 716mm(28”), it offers 3V output speed at 5.8km/h and 6.4km/h respectively. To have 3V output, it only needs to slightly increase speed up to 1.4km/h. Furthermore, according to German StVZO 6V3W regulation, it requires 5.7V output at 15km/h. If we set the 9 series on wheel sizes of 646mm(26”) and 716mm(28”), this 9 series offers 5.7V output when speed at 15.7km/h and 17.7 km/h respectively. To have 5.7V output, it only needs to increase speed up to 2.7km/h. As for 6V3W, the German StVZO approved hubs in the current market normally offer 6V3W output when speed around 17km/h. The SP 9 series offers 6V3W output for 646mm(26”) and 716mm(28”) wheels when speed at 16.7km/h and 18.6km/h respectively. Only needs to increase speed up to 1.6km/h. Summary: To sum up, the 9 series with unprecedented dynamo characteristics is the perfect devise for 16” to 20” wheels. The extra values provided by the 9 series, such as its light weight and low drag, are definitely the great advantages for enjoying comfort. The ULTRASLIM dynamo can also work greatly for 26” to 28” wheel. To match 6V3W output, does increasing speed only 1 or 2 km/h matter ? Only piece of cake. SP 9 series offers sufficient output and is definitely the best setup for going fast.

Ultra–Endurance Race Solo, self supported race Lots of endurance bike races in the world. They are always in a solo, non stop, self supported races in summer. There is no finish time cut-off. Trans Am bike race is one of the famous endurance races at road bike category. Tour Divide mountain bike race is one of the famous endurance races at mountain bike category. It is always solely under your own wheeled human power with no outside support. Racers must carry everything they need to survive, e.g. warm clothes, wet weather gear, sleeping equipment, food, water and more. As is the case for most bikepacking events, riders are allowed to make use of commercial services along the but support crews or team cars are definitely not allowed. Riders alone have to find their own food and water, sort out bike issues out in the wilderness with frozen hands, carry all the equipment and spares they need to be safe, and find safe places to catch a few hours of sleep along the way…. Good luck to all brave racers.
Tour Divide Mountain Bike Race A non stop, self supported mountain bike race Is a solo, self-supported ultra-cycling challenge to race all 2,745 miles of Adventure Cycling Associationâ€™s epic Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. There are no compulsory rest periods or specified distances racers must travel daily. The race clock runs non-stop. He or she who can ride the fastest while making fewer, shorter stops usually wins. With an average time-to-completion of three weeks in the saddle, this grand tour is the longest, most challenging mountain bike race on the planet. Itâ€™s a contest for the ultra-fit but only if ultra-prepared for myriad contingencies of backcountry biking. The Great Divide Route is geographically divided into five regions. The diverse nature of the regions makes for an incredible visual, sometimes spiritual experience. The route offers something different every day â€” whether it be riding conditions, scenery, points of interest, or folks along the way. It is a route to be enjoyed for its diversity.

Origin: Harrogate, United Kingdom Mike Hall has won many endurance races and is always the record holder. He is the champion at 2013 Tour Divide Mountain bike race. He joined this race in 2016. A gain, he is the champion and made a new record â€“ 13days, 22hours, 50minutes. The information is from Wikipedia. Mike Hall (born on 4 June 1981) is a British cyclist and race organizer who specializes in selfâ€“supported ultra-distance races. In 2012, he won the inaugural World Cycle Race. In 2013, he won the Tour Divide ultra-endurance mountain bike race across the Rocky Mountains in Canada and the USA. In 2014, he won the inaugural Trans Am Bike Race, a road-based event from the Pacific coast to the Atlantic coast in the USA. Since 2013, he has been the principal organizer of the Transcontinental Race, an event similar to the TransAm Bicycle Race, but that traverses Europe.
Mike started racing mountain bikes as a teenager. His first ultra-distance self-supported race was the Tour Divide in 2011â€“ while riding in the top 10, he acquired a knee injury but still finished the race. He then won a major ultraâ€“distance event every year for the next three years.

Below is the information written by Jesse Carlsson. She was the first woman to "everest" a mountain by bike. She did it by riding up Mount Buffalo eight times in 18 hours, notching up 9,031 metres of climbing along the way. Since then she's completed a few more everesting missions, both on and off roads. In late 2015 she rode non-stop 800 km from Melbourne to Adelaide in thirty-something hours. Sarah is new to ultra-endurance racing and this will be her first ultra-endurance race.
