The Kappstein Technology

  • What does ProLine mean?
  • What is Kappstein's “Round-Teeth-Design”?

ProLineSprocket

The Sprocket ProLine combines all the advantages of the ProLine series and has been specially optimised for 11-speed chains. This sprocket was used for the first time at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio by none other than Olympic champion Kristina Vogel. The narrower design makes it even lighter than the standard sprocket. It also ensures improved power transmission and is thereby particularly wear-resistant as a result. The high-quality laser engraving featuring the Kappstein logo completes the design.

Lightweight with style

 

The edged holes in the 15T-19T sizes not only underline the design but also drastically reduce weight. With 16 teeth, the sprocket weighs just 49 grams. All sprockets are made of 630 stainless steel and are completely manufactured from the raw materials to the finished product in our very own CNC machine park. Even the elegant laser engraving originates from our facilities thanks to our very own laser engraving machine. All in all, one of the most high-quality and stylish sprockets on the market.

StandardSprocket

With its “Round Teeth Design”, the Sprocket we have developed realises a new design theory for bicycle sprockets. It is easy to see that, compared to conventional tooth designs, the teeth appear slightly wider and less pointed. The rounded teeth ensure that the chain fits perfectly between the individual teeth. The result is optimum power transmission between the chain and the sprocket with reduced wear.

KappsteinLockring

The Kappstein Lockring, like the Sprockets, is made of high quality 630 stainless steel. With a material thickness of 6.5 mm it belongs to the wider lock rings. However, despite its strength, the lock ring weighs only 29 grams. Kappstein has designed an extra thick lock ring that is compatible with all hubs fitted with a BSA or ITA thread. A common problem whereby the hook wrench is applied leading to round gaps in the teeth after tightening is a thing of the past. The Track Lockrings are also completely manufactured in our own production facilities.
