UK wheel brand Halo proudly heads into its twentieth year of business with the addition of more category-leading products.
With the advent of Shimano’s Micro Spline being open to more third-party brands as of January 2020, Halo are proudly one of the few brands to be able to offer a hub solution from the get go. The Micro Spline design has 23 rectangular splines that allows for the use of a multi-part cassette with a 10-tooth cog, which is what Shimano’s 12-speed mountain bike cassettes use. With only a very limited number of licences initially issued to manufacturers, Shimano have now made it much easier for brands to produce compatible driver bodies. Halo have been collaborating with sister company Identiti to offer OEM hubs which utilise Micro Spline and the first will be available aftermarket in the new year. Additional Micro Spline hub offerings from Halo are in production and we expect to see a full range solely under the Halo name in Spring 2020.
Halo is also launching their new gravel and road plus tyre range in a variety of colours and sizes in the new year. Designed in-house, Halo’s new tyre range offer tubeless capabilities, multi-compounds and intelligent tread designs. The three tyres – GXC, GXR and RXR – cater for all conditions able to be tackled on a modern gravel and road plus bike.
The team from Halo will be located in the Ison Distribution rooms – Indianapolis and Hungaroring – at Whittlebury Hall.
