New product :Gokiso aerospace Hub and wheel

GOKISO is a bicycle component brand introduced by Kondo Machine Corporation. Kondo Machine Corporation is an ultra precision machine manufacturer specialized in ultra precision metal cutting. The company is also recognized as a leading bearing manufacturer for jet engines.
In fact, GOKISO is not just another bicycle component brand.

It is a new brand launched in January, 2010. Instead of becoming a trend follower of the cycling market, we devote ourselves to our products, with an engineer's pride and passion, challenging the market with our original concept for the GOKISO brand. It is our mission to introduce the "true value" to the bicycle market through GOKISO. The original engineering expertise and the most advanced machining technologies are now transformed into the GOKISO brand.

The brand name, GOKISO, comes from a local shrine called GOKISO HACHIMAN Shrine in the Gokiso area of Nagoya, Aichi, Japan. This district is also the birthplace of the president and the executive director of Kondo Machine Corporation. Thus, GOKISO is a symbol of craftsmanship and is also our heart and soul.
This is what "GOKISO" is named after. GOKISO is our hope, endeavor and a new approach in offering our local products to the world.

Kondo Machine Corporation engages in aerospace parts manufacturing. The organization is certified for JISQ9100; the aerospace quality standard. This means that GOKISO products are machine processed under the high quality requirements comparable to those applied to the aerospace part manufacturing.
Our absolute and accurate quality control is applied to every single piece of our products. Every product lives up to uncompromising standards in design, production and quality control. Our product makes you realize what the true value of craftsmanship is. This is our philosophy and this is the philosophy of the GOKISO brand.

Gokiso Hub :
GOKISO engineers' passion, inspiration and technologies are
all compacted in Aerospace Hub.We present our inventive technology
for the first time to demonstrate our Innovative structure.
You will be impressed to see the wheels keep rotating "forever" with the least input. The hub structure, the materials and the configuration are the features original to GOKISO that our engineer sought every possibility in a bicycle hub from zero. The best rotation performance which can handle 100kg of load and 300km/h; this is what we have achieved and this is our commitment for the absolute rotation smoothness. In addition, GOKISO's shock-absorbing mechanism gives such a light and smooth ride as you would be flying in the air. 

Gokiso Wheel :
You can feel the characteristics when you stop pedaling.
GOKISO engineers reconsidered the basic of a bicycle design by
comparing the bicycle to a machine.
The pedaling power is delivered to the chain and hub,
and then these energies become the driving force to the tires.
In this process, we focused on that "How we minimizes loss of delivering power?".
A radically new wheel was born from GOKISO’s original incentive approach.
You can feel the acceleration even when you stop pedaling.
The sensation of gliding on ice.
GOKISO provides a new experience.

We conducted our own bench-test for the performance evaluation of road wheels.
As the result, we concluded that "enough rigidity" is the most important factor for rims to develop high efficiency for delivering the energy compared to smaller or bigger materials.
Therefore we selected the full-carbon which is used for the latest aviation models as the material of choice.
The surface of the brakes is covered with "basalt fiber" which is superior in tough and high heat resistance conditions.
The GOKISO wheel is superior in rigidity, durability and thermostability.
Moreover, your pedaling power is wholly transferred into driving power.
Therefore you can use the GOKISO Wheel not only for racing but also for daily usage.
The carbon rim's graphic is designed with a Jetengine turbine blades motif, and the GOKISO hub's structure is structured as it originated from jet engine bearings.
That means the whole of GOKISO Wheel is designed with " Jetengine " motif.

GOKISO Wheel is not a "ultra-light wheel".
Of course the low-mass has a low inertial force.
However, the wheel without rigidity gets deformed by the rider's weight and additional load.
The GOKISO Wheel absorbs these loads, and maximizes the driving power by keeping its shape.
"The shock absorbing structure" in the GOKISO Hub absorbs the vibration that is transmitted through hard rims from the road surface.
Through this structure, the gokiso hub prohibits bearing to vibrate, and therefore provides a smooth riding experience.

  1. Those are really fine qualities of a good bearing. In fact the best bearing have all those standards too.
