R915-1 / Scandium Road Frame

TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards

TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards

In the past, the scandium frames can only use very simple tubing, like round or oval, because scandium is too hard to make complex shape.
But now Kinesis Scandium (we called KSC), and Super Plastic Forming (Air forming) can create complex scandium tubing profile.
R915 is the first frame which uses KSC tubing. With KSC tubing, R915 has nice tubing profile and weights 1100g in 56cm size.
The stiffness and strength of KSC are good, and easily to forming by SPF, so we can not only make the bicycle frame lighter than typical aluminum frames, but also make the frames with complex tubing profile.
R915 passed the EN test and in a reasonable price.
