Thirty years of experience with carbon-fibre-strengthened plastics, or carbon-fibre laminates, are incorporated into this bike of carbon-monocoque construction. High-tensile-strength carbon-fibre mats and synthetic resins are converted into super-high-quality frames and forks using our patented X7 technology. Know-how and competence derived from aerospace engineering and applied processes make our bikes unique all over the world…even setting us apart from the big bicycle manufacturers.
First, in a complex thermal process, PAN fibres (Polyacrylnitril) are spun into high-performance carbon fibres which are then processed into carbon-fibre mats. Continuous monitoring assures quality assembly during the laying of laminate into the frame mold, performed exclusively by hand. At the same time, the special fibre mat layup plan guarantees that the frame is rigid enough in specific areas, and flexible enough in other areas, to properly enhance riding comfort.
Only special, high-strength carbon fibres used in our running bikes are otherwise found only in the aerospace, motorsport and other high-tech industries requiring light, high-strength-capable materials.
Our patented X7 Technology was developed specifically to achieve absolute rigidity (Nm/°) at very low weight.
