The goal in the development process of the HTX 29" Lector was to design the fastest mountain bike in the world.
To achieve this goal, we used varying fiber orientations on different frame positions. This allowed us to obtain certain designated stiffness values in specific areas. The result is a rear triangle which is absolutely flexible in the vertical direction, giving the rider a comfortable and energy saving ride, constantly maintaining the strength needed for the final spurt.
The frame shape conveys the bikes fast and lightweight character. Sharp edges accentuate the high-tech methods used in creating this bike.
