Bamboo Bow / bicycles

Bamboo Bow

"Bamboo Bow" has the vibration reduction frame for bicycles featuring arch shaped composite bamboo chips. Bamboo chips of different widths and thicknesses can be used and easily interchanged according to the body size and purpose of users, so that the bicycle frame and wheel frame can have different shock absorption capacities. Bamboo materials possess environmentally friendly properties such as being organic, lightweight, and less wasteful. In addition, the pre-stressing process for the bamboo, during which steam is used to induce thermal bending, also reduces the environmental burden caused during production.
