EUROBIKE AWARD

EUROBIKE AWARD

This all new concept of a carbon lightweight seatpost is the result of numerous research projects on lightweight materials and processing procedures in the area of fiber reinforced composites as a part of the division polymer engineering.
The material selection allows a load optimized and functional integrated design of a seatpost in double beam construction with an impressive carbon optic. The geometrical design of this seatpost improves deformation and damping behaviour without loosing stiffness but also increases significantly the driver comfort what is proven by longtime load tests and also by independent test drivers.
