Stronglight enters in grouppo market
 
02/12/2001
Stronglight enters in Groupo Market Stronglight is a legendary French brand. In Europe, most riders and specially those older consider its components as something desirable for any bicycle, no matter how expensive it is.

The most acknowledged items for Stronglight have always been cranksets, bottom brackets and headsets. But now, this company wants to give a step beyond, entering in the groupo market. They have introduce a range of component groupos for road, MtB and city bikes.

For road bikes, three sets are available: Speedlight, Mygal and Asphalt. Stronglight does not currently manufacture the shift levers for these groups and recommends the use of Shimano Dual Control levers. Using Shimano levers has allowed them to focus all their research abilities in the rest of the componentry, so precision and quality are insured. The Speedlight componentry can compete with any other high end set in the world, and, of course, headset and cranks stand out over the rest components, in joint with a surprising titanium cassette.
 
In the MtB field, there are two sets: Century and Rockstrong. Both them are based in the Dirt technology from Sachs and was last purchased by SRAM. Using existing designs guarantees that they will work perfect. Once again, cranksets are remarkable.                            

As for city componentry, there are no closed groupos, but a wide range of different components. Stronglight allows the possibility of personalizing each piece in finishing and marking, what is very interesting for bicycle manufacturers.

And last, but not least, there are two new releases: a bottom bracket and a range of four arm crank compatible chainrings. The new Stronglight SBB bottom bracket is available in two different qualities: Steel axle (250 g), and titanium axle (195 g). By installing the left bearing into the central cartridge, and the right one the way it can move while the BB is screwed, the system aligns itself, no matter if the frame box is not perfect. This reduces wearing.
