Galfer Disc Wave® Available for Center-Lock Systems


CARSON CITY, Nev. – Industrias Galfer, the Spanish bicycle brake-components manufacturer, has added to its bicycle offerents a fixed Disc Wave® with the Center-Lock system for the following sizes: ø140mm, ø160mm, ø180mm and ø203mm (road and mountain bike).

Galfer’s discs are suitable for the locking system launched several years ago by Shimano and has become commonplace in the industry.

The Center-Lock disc includes a washer and a ring to fix the disc to the rim. The Center-Lock piece is made from high-quality, high-resistance and low weight machined aluminum.

GALFER Disc Wave® are made of laser-cut stainless steel and undergo several processes including hardening, black painting with cataphoresis, final grinding and roughening treatment, all of which offer a great finish and improve the braking performance.

GALFER applies the same quality processes and controls as in the MotoGP or WSBK brake discs manufacturing.

Several road racers, including Italian Alessandro Vanotti (former professional and member of the Astana team from 2013 to 2017), have tested the new system with very satisfactory results.
