Thun in Taipei with New Plus Series

At Taipei Cycle 2010 Alfred Thun is introducing the new ‘Plus’ feature for the 2011 series of its trusted Boogie, Rocky and Jive bb-cartridges. The Plus series represents the culmination of the company’s efforts to optimise some key areas, which means faster assembly processes and improved energy efficiency & rotation quality.

BB-cartridges are where Thun’s core strength lies. The company claims to be Europe’s market leader when it comes to bb-cartridges for bicycles in the € 150 to € 800 end consumer price ranges.

"Our goal is to offer key product benefits to bicycle manufacturers and consumers alike. That’s why we have invested over a million euros in 6-Sigma quality management processes since 2008," says junior chief executive Alexander Thun.

The Shark system (pat. pend.), a world first, is one of the special features of the new ‘Plus’ series. Screwing the adapter in removes traces of varnish in the housing.
