EUROBIKE AWARD 2008

EUROBIKE AWARD 2008

The new generation of steel tubing is light, corrosion resistant and offers extreme tensile strength. With the martensitic age-hardenable structure, super thin-walled, oversized tubes can be made that push the frame weight below the 1400gr limit at outstanding riding performance and high stiffness. Special tube shapes and tube dimensions used in Chip Race have resulted to a strength-to-weight ratio, that even outclasses a premium titanium frame. With his slender silhouette and outstanding appearance, the Chip Race is an outré alternative to the rest of the road racing market and a proof for the competitiveness of steel.
