This abbreviation means Recumbent Aluminum Wheels and indicates the material, out of which the wheels are made. And be sure that the spikes are also made of this material. These wheels were developed by REMERX and AZUB Company specifically for recumbent bikes in order to reduce their weight, offer the necessary dimensions and their combinations as well as improve the overall characteristics of these wheels.

One of the big advantages of all-alluminium construction is the improved heat dissipation during braking. This is particularly crucial for 20″ wheels, which use rim brakes for braking. Another aspect that has recently been gaining in importance is the easy recycling, because the wheels are almost entirely made of one type of material, which significantly reduces the cost and complexity throughout the recycling process.

Wheels are currently offered in one color version and can be used both for disc and rim brakes. Rims are decorated in black, nipples and hubs are red and spokes are black. Only one of them is red. The bikes have a total of 24 high-strength aluminum flat spokes, which among others also improve the overall aerodynamics of wheels and also are made directly, which reduces their stress. Nipples feature a large bearing surface.

RAW are available in sizes 20 and 26 and can be combined, giving the chance to upgrade their recumbent bikes even to riders owning e.g. Raptobikes or other FWD (Front Wheel Drive) bikes.

Azub 5 after 17.000 km

16 09 2009

You could already read about Marija Kozin on our blog. In spring 2009 she came to our facility to show us her Azub 5 after 17.000 km. Almost everything was original. Chain, crankset, cassette, pedals, rear tyre Maraton XR (fron Maraton was changed twice). The pulley had to be changed because the bearings were worn out, also the chain tubes were changed, but we were surprised how much they survived.

All around, we are pretty satisfied with the bike and how it survived such journey.

You can see some pictures here.
