Shimano DH-3N80 Generator Hub


Shimano's higher end, lighter weight dynamo hub. This version of the 3N80 hub closes the gap further with the Schmidt hubs in terms of weight and rolling resistance, still a bit heavier, and a bit more rolling resistance.  The 3N80 also has cup/cone bearings while the Schmidt's have cartridge bearings. The 3N80 has nicer polished bearing surfaces and an alloy axle which set this hub apart from the LX model.

We spec this hub on our standard Pelican builds.  It is a great high value hub for someone looking to integrate their bike with generator lighting, but who do not need the best or the costliest hub out there.
