In the year of its 70th anniversary, Spanish company Galfer, leader in the production of braking systems, is preparing to participate at Eurobike (Frankfurt), celebrating a track record of major growth that has led to it becoming a renowned brand in today’s bicycle industry.
2022 is undoubtedly a milestone for Galfer in the bicycle industry. In fact, the recent launch of the new SHARK disc for the after-market segment has established the Spanish brand as an absolute reference in the sector of innovative and high-tech braking components, positioning itself as a benchmark product in the bicycle market.
The entire new “Disc Shark®” range—in sizes ø180 mm, ø203 mm and ø223 mm—will undoubtedly be the star of the Galfer Bike stand (hall 9.1, stand F24) at the Eurobike 2022 fair. Developed in collaboration with Martin Maes (Orbea Fox Enduro Team) and Alex Marin (IJ Racing), among others, the new “Disc Shark®” disc is a perfect combination of design, innovation and high performance that has already conquered the market due to its outstanding features: reduced operating temperature, higher braking power, more stability and lower weight.
In addition to the new brake discs, some of the latest novelties of the new Galfer Bike 2022 catalogue will also be on show, including the renewed floating brake discs with coloured pins, the magnets for E-bike speed sensors or the lightweight screws for discs and adapters, as well as the rest of the product range for MTB, road, E-bikes and Bike Trial.
Furthermore, the latest model of the Orbea Rallon, ridden by the Orbea Enduro Team with Martin Maes, Vid Persak, Edgar Carballo and Florencia Espiñeira, who use the new SHARK brake discs and are the current leaders of the Enduro World Series in the Electric Bikes category, will be on display at the Galfer stand.
Ivo Martini Bristot – Galfer Sales Manager:
“At Galfer Bike we are very excited about the Eurobike 2022 fair and its new location in the city of Frankfurt. We will be there in person presenting our new brake disc (the Disc Shark®), which has the best performance on the market and has established Galfer as the top friction specialist in the sector. In addition, we are also looking forward to meeting our distributors and establishing new relationships. Thanks to the bicycle boom over recent years, we are experiencing considerable growth in the Bike area within the company, which we hope to consolidate.”
The Galfer brand was born in 1952 and has not stopped growing and evolving ever since in the motorbike and bicycle sector. As disc brake friction experts, Galfer’s brake pads and discs have been used on mountain bikes since 1998 as original equipment and also since 2012 as after-market equipment.
The Eurobike 2022 trade fair will be held in Frankfurt (Germany) from 13 to 17 July 2022.
