Front one-way axle
In the front the black anodized aluminum front axle with Japan-made one-way bearings features a free of play and super-true pulley assembly. Spring steel drive cups, strong, long and thin spring-steel driveshaft with CVD system, and ball raced spring steel wheel axles with aluminum quick-change levers. The open front end design allows for very fast and easy removal of the front axle or parts.
The rear end construction with the aluminum brackets holds the rear axle. Its open design allows for ease of maintenance and cleaning, and needs very few screws to dis-assemble. Replacing a belt in case needed is simple and very fast too. The eccenter on the rear shaft allows for belt tensioning.
The suspension bracket and rear plate hold the pins firmly and have composite roll-center inserts to allow for fast and precise changes.
