Cyclists use 3D Printing to bring high-performance bike parts to life with the Kappius Hub

The Kappius father and son team are in the business of developing high performance bicycle hubs. Their process was a lengthy one until they came across direct metal laser sintering (DMLS), an industrial additive manufacturing technology (3D Printing).

This has enabled them to go from “concept to bike-ready components in about month” said Kappius who has been able to tinker designs on his computer and quickly turn that into tinkering with physical prototypes.

3D printing is rocking the world of design and innovation and will continue to be a growing part of the industry.

They are now using the crowd funding website Kickstarter to fund the initial production run. Check out their project here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/432274460/the-kh2-by-kappius-components?ref=live
