The Kappstein Sprocket was developed to realize a new design theory – the “round-teeth-design”. Due to the new design it offers a lot of advantages. One of the most obvious feature of the Kappstein are the round teeth in comparison to conventional sprockets. Furthermore, the innovative sprockets are CNC machined by using only highest quality stainless steel.
The consequence of this new design is much higher longevity for the sprocket as well as the connected components. Additional this new design leads to a higher power transmission. With the integrated holes (15T-19T) the product is also quite light, the 16T version for example only weighs 49 grams.
„Pro Line“ stands for Kappstein’s new product line, which has been specifically developed for the competitive sport and its extremely high demands. All products with the add-on „Pro Line“ have been optimized for a specific application. A variety of areas can be optimized which can include weight, stiffness, function, surface treatment or the material itself. The first product of this series is their new sprocket, designed to be compatible with the narrower 11-speed chain.
The 8bar Team tests and races the new “Pro Line” sprockets in the 2016 fixed gear season.
