Make the flange even more stable: Flange Support Rings by Rohloff

Since October 2017, anodised aluminium flange rings have been part of every new Speedhub. For long-lasting enjoyment with the Rohloff gear hub, Rohloff always recommends using the flange rings with the matching butted Speedhub spokes (2.9 mm arc length).
The use of flange rings can ensure that the Speedhub does not cause any problems on the flange. The rings prevent the spoke from tearing out in the event of a flange break. This is especially useful for extreme use on tandems, touring bikes, e-bikes, cargo and for riders over 100 kg.
On hubs with older serial numbers, both spoke flanges of the Speedhub are the same, so two identical flange rings must be used on the right and left (small/small). Hubs with a higher serial number have a raised flange only on the cover side (left), so these hubs need two different flange rings (small/large).
The " Made in Germany" lettering on the housing of the Speedhub serves to distinguish which flange rings must be used.
