Schmidt SON 28 Boost Disc Dynamo Front Hub: The Schmidt Dynamo front hub or SON (Schmidt's Original Nabendynamo) is extremely reliable and has almost no drag. Made by Wilfried Schmidt Maschinenbau in Tübingen, Germany, the hub is quiet and is designed to give at least 50,000 kilometers of trouble free riding between servicing. The hub powers many different six volt headlights including Schmidt's own Edelux II LED headlight and assorted taillights, both halogen and LED headlamps and taillights made by Busch & Müller in Meinerzhagen, Germany, Supernova lights, and Spanninga lights.

The SON is extremely popular amongst long distance cyclists who need reliable lighting for all night cycling in any weather conditions. Brevet riders would rather have light when they need it, and don't want to carry batteries for a 1200k event. Bicycle commuters and people who don't require an automobile depend on the SON to make their cycling safe and efficient all year long in sun, rain and snow. Touring cyclists need light to make it to their next campground on a long day's trip. I use one on my mountain bike for night rides, and my road bike has one with the light switched "On" all the time.

Some suspension forks are now being made with 110mm dropout spacing. This allows the disc hub to have symmetrical spoke flange spacing for increased lateral loads. Black, Silver or red only. No photo yet, but these look about the same as the 100mm version above, just a bit wider. Flange spacing, 55mm.
