EUROBIKE AWARD

EUROBIKE AWARD

Increased performance, increased sustainability. The SR2 BioComp chooses a completely different way of optimising weight and comfort. By using 95% natural flax fibres in a composite matrix, the saddle shell’s stiffness and flex properties can be precisely defined. This allows a perfect balance between the two characteristics. The flax composite matrix significantly increases the damping properties, with practically no weight penalty compared to pure carbon or glass fibre. Such a high level of sustainability in a product increasingly the way we are looking in the future.
