Shimano introduces a new sports hub dynamo weighing only 490 grams, compared to 655 grams for the current top model DH-3N71. This relatively lightweight hub dynamo will be available in two versions. DH-3N80 is a 6V / 3.0 W model for the German market and DH-2N80-E is a 6V / 2.4W version for other countries.

It features a double anodized premium finish and it is provided with a quick release. Both 32 and 36 spoke hole versions for wheels of 26 till 28 inch will be available. Double contact sealing has been used for extra durability. This high-end sports hub dynamo features a low rotation resistance so it can be used for trekking but also for road racing and mountain biking.

For some Shimano bicycle components you have to go to Japan. The nicely styled bicycle lighting set for example is only sold on Shimano’s home market as they do not yet fulfil the requirements of all European countries. Perhaps this might change in the future. Nice to know is that most bicycle lighting sets in Japan are sold including a hub dynamo.
