TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2012

Our XC and marathon 29er Carbon MTB hardtail-frame has a “FLEX-STAY” rear-frame and uses additional vibration absorbing “FLAX” bio-fibers in the carbon composite material.
Engineering target was to achieve the best compromise between contrary characteristics of extremely low frame-weight with high torsional and lateral stiffness for direct power-transfer in combination with great riding comfort.
Slightly curved main-tubes and seat-stays visualize muscular tension and shifting cables are properly integrated into the frame.
Victory in German “BIKE”-magazines (issue 1/2012) test of pro-class 29er race-bikes highlights the technical capability.
