Dynamo Wheels and Accessories
$37 – $350
Bring on the Night!
Do you even Dynamo? Dynamo hubs have been around for a long time, but with the advent of ultra-efficient LED lights and advances in the power-generating technology in the hubs, we’re at the dawn of a Dynamo golden age. You will never need to worry if your light’s batteries are charged. Game changer. Furthermore, you can go on epic adventures with no need to worry about recharges. And you can even charge your essential electronics – phone, GPS computer, etc – from your dynamo hub!
We can build whatever HiFi wheel set you want with a Dynamo front hub on board. Hub prices listed below are for a Dynamo upgrade only. Add the HiFi wheel set of your choice to your cart. Add the Shutter Precision hub of your choice, and any lights or accessories, to your cart. We’ll do the rest, and you’ll have an amazing, hand built Dynamo setup of your own shortly.

Shutter Precision Hubs
We chose to build with SP hubs because they perform. Their PL-8X (for 15mm axles) and PL-7 (for 12mm axles) lead the way in terms of efficiency, light weight, and durability. If you’re running a quick release fork, because of these hubs’ incredible efficiency, we recommend running one of these thru-axle hubs with a QR reducer, which we can supply. Alternately, we can source a QR-specific dynamo hub for you, if you’d prefer.
Both systems feature a class-leading 78% efficiency at 15km/h. The PL-8X offers the most versatility – it’s ready to go for 15mm thru axle, or you can add a 15mm>12mm reducer or 15mm>QR reducer and run it on any bike. For dedicated 12mm thru axle use, the PL-7 shaves some grams while maintaining the same excellent efficiency. The PL-8X weighs 465g, while the PL-7 weight 409g. And heavy battery lugging no longer required! SP hubs available in 24h, 28h, and 32h. We stock black hubs.
Sinewave Cycles Beacon Headlight with Charger
The super-nifty Beacon headlight has quickly become a favorite. Excellent brightness of 750 lumens with a symmetrical beam pattern well suited to off-road adventures. It’s completely water/weather-proof. And can be run upside down for a myriad of mounting options (running it off a GoPro mount on the underside of an out-front computer mount works great, for example). But the coolest feature is the integrated charger. Charge your phone or GPS computer via the handy USB output on the headlight. There’s even a port to run the headlight off of an external battery, should you want to use the Beacon without the Dynamo power (when setting up camp, for example). We stock these in black with other color options available. A USB to DC cable, and the wiring to connect to the Dynamo hub are included. Mounts are not. Note some electronics work better when charged via an intermediary USB battery to ensure constant voltage.
SUPERIOR BRIGHTNESS AT LOW AND MEDIUM SPEEDS
Dynamo power is optimized at low-to-medium speeds, reaching 200 lumens at just 5 MPH, 500 lumens at 8 MPH, 650 lumens at 10 MPH, and 750 lumens at 13 MPH.
CHARGER PRIORITY MODE
Intelligently balances power between light and charger to optimize simultaneous use.
A supercapacitor, charged while riding, provides about 5 minutes of standlight when stopped.
Made in USA.
Busch + Müller IQ-X Headlight
The 100 Lux IQ-X is among the brightest Dynamo lights out there. If you’re predominantly road riding, the IQ-X has a more pavement-friendly beam pattern that keeps more light angled on the road, where you need it. It also won’t blind oncoming traffic. A light sensor automatically activates the daytime running light, so you’re better seen from the sides. Come dusk, the side lights turn off to focus all of the energy into the beam pattern. The IQ-X is one of the only road-oriented lights that can rotate in its housing, enabling it to be mounted upside down while maintaining proper beam pattern. Features a standlight, so the light stays on for several minutes after you stop pedaling. Made in Germany.
B + M µ Micro Rear Light
The Micro is amazing: it’s tiny, extremely light weight, and somehow packs both an impressive amount of brightness and a capacitor that gives it standlight capability. When you come to a stop, the light will continue to shine for a few minutes (great for traffic lights, etc!). The Micro comes with assemblies to mount to fenders or to a strut (seat stay, chain stay, seat post, etc). Wiring to connect to headlight is included. Made in Germany.
B + M Secula Plus Rear Lights
Available as a strut (seat stay / seat post / chain stay) mount or a fender mount, the Secula Plus combines a bright LED with a reflector to maximize visibility. From the mouths of Busch + Müller: “Equipped with LineTec optics that create a corona of light from one high power LED around a central reflector. Very distinctive due to its “spatial” shape, it offers other traffic participants more perspective, allowing them to judge your position better. That makes you safer.” Made in Germany.
