The Legion Engineering Corporation’s Strategy & News
4 years ago, Wayne brought fresh blood to the bicycle valve industry that had not seen any major innovation for the past 120 years. He developed his Vmax high volume valves product line for tubeless Mountain Bikes and Road Bikes. Major benefits are to easily seat the tire and inject / remove the sealant.
2021 was a good year for the company as 90% of its activity relies on the supply of consumables. Whereas it has become really hard to buy a new bike due to supply chain issues dur to Covid, a lot of cyclists could still renovate or upgrade their bicycle with new parts such as new valve, brake pads, cables…
The Legion aims to diversify its activities in order to cooperate with cycling brands mainly in the following fields: Ice Tech Pads (with Ice Vortex heat dispersion or heat pipe technology), brake systems with floating rotors, and high volume tubeless valves (with the Vmax product line).
If you are a brand and you are looking for High Volume tubeless valve OEM or Brake Pads ODM services, you should get in touch with The Legion Engineering Corporation. Wayne’s sales team will analyze your needs and provide you with the adequate answer (contact details below).
Mechanical Brake Innovation by Wayne Moore
Wayne likes to innovate and is constantly researching new ways to improve the performance of bicycle parts. His latest endeavor is in the mechanical brake niche, where he has (re-)engineered a new design.
Mechanical brakes are often seen as cheap low-end compared to hydraulic braking systems that are high-end but more expensive. The latter is nevertheless sometimes considered as dangerous with the risk of boiling the break fluid in case of high demand breaking situation. Those who experienced that once in their life surely can relay to this fear.
In an effort to re-habilitate mechanical brakes low-end braking capacity, Wayne has developed a light weight powerful and safe mechanical brake shifting the traditional 3 balls concept to a 15 balls design.
This affordable compact new design should rock the mechanical brake world that has been in lethargy for so many years. Wayne will present it to the public during the upcoming EuroBike Show this coming June.
