The Hollowcage for Shimano can be ordered from Velobrands, which is now the exclusive distributor of Absoluteblack in the UK. On the distribution announcement, Bruno Nascimento, head of sales at Absoluteblack, said: “Velobrands offers us the focus needed to build our brand. They have a great team with lots of experience, a fresh outlook with new ideas and I am delighted to be working with them.”

Last week, Absoluteblack launched the Hollowcage for SRAM eTap AXS, which shares a very similar design to the Shimano model launched last September using the same mono-plate cage design, but it did take the brand longer to develop it for SRAM because it wanted to address one specific issue many riders struggle with – the excessive noise.

Absoluteblack says it is the largest manufacturer of oval chainrings in the world and in recent years has expanded its range to include lubricant and pulley cages. Its design office is based in London, and all metal components are manufactured and dispatched from Poland using German aluminium, then anodized in the UK.
