Total Control from Start to Finish
From the initial concept to the final packing, edco maintains total control through the process. Design, prototyping, testing, manufacturing, and assembly are all done in-house to ensure the highest possible quality for the end customer.
Innovative Products. World-class Design.
An innovator in the bicycle component market since its earliest days, edco was one of the first manufacturers of the Presta-style valve and 3-speed internal gear hub. In the late 1980s and early 90s, several key innovations were introduced: the sealed bearing bottom bracket, brake/shift lever integration, hydraulic braking. And we continue to innovate. Our design process starts with the latest CAD, FEM, and CFD software technology and continues with 3D printed models, prototypes, and extensive lab testing.
edco has been producing hubs since the 1920's and over the years we've designed and built hubs for many other companies in the bicycle business. Today edco continues with some of the finest hubs available on the market. State-of-the-art equipment and the famous Swiss attention to detail ensure that every edco hub comes off the line with bearing alignment tolerance within 0.001mm.
Extensive Quality Control
All edco hubs undergo a complete dimensional check before final hand-assembly. Each rim is subjected to a torsional and compressive load test prior to roundness and flatness quality controls. And completed wheels go through a 14-step quality control check before they’re boxed and shipped to the customer.
Handbuilt by Professionals
Our hubs and wheels are hand-assembled by master wheel builders at our head office in ’s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands. Each wheelset requires approximately one and a half hours to achieve perfectly even spoke tension and a 0.2mm lateral tolerance.
Top Quality in Every Wheel
From our entry-level OPTIMA series to our innovative SUPERSPORT range, all edco wheels have gone through the same design, testing, manufacturing, and assembly process. Because we never compromise on quality.
