"We turners are number makers".
Damil Components was born in 2015 from the idea of Repele Andrea, owner of Torneria Damil. He grew up with bicycles, and his favourite discipline is mountain biking, which he has practised since his early days. He has been working and collaborating with the turnery since the very beginning as a subcontractor in the production of different types of cycle components such as forks, bottom brackets and even hubs.
At some point, tired of not being able to find high-performance wheels on the market, he decided to design his own hub.
Why the hub? Because it is the central hub of the bicycle system and is what connects the frame to the wheels. A fundamental part but mechanically not easy to handle.
The design is built from a sliding system based on bearings and an axle. The construction of a precise, threadlocked axle is the main key to the hub. Around this is built the body with wide flanges to give rigidity to the wheel, and a very high quality Ergal 7075 aluminium. The engagement system with 4 springs and ratchets with 60 engagement points exponentially increases the pedalling responsiveness and torsion resistance given by the new sprocket packs with larger and larger crowns. The weight is the result of this maniacal search for reliability, rigidity and smoothness. Everything has a sense and a direction that is unique: performance.
