HAIBIKE AFFAIR RX / Carbon racing bike

HAIBIKE AFFAIR RX

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The frame of the HAIBIKE AFFAIR weighs a tiny 840 g. This is due to its light carbon fibers, which the fork is also made out of. The fork only weighs 330 g and is a particular technical highlight of the bike: for improved stiffness the classic tapered steer tube has been enlarged from 1⅛“ to 1¼“. The Reverse Dropouts make up a fork design that improves comfort with the same level of stiffness and steering precision. This is also supported by the Super-Flex seat post and a tapered seat tube in the bottom bracket area. The contrast between the massive down tube and narrow, curved top tube gives the AFFAIR a modern racing design.
