Lightweight is the current leading trend and major design factor in the bicycle industry. More weight means increased load for the riders. MID has combined market trend and our own innovation; completely against the fundamentals of traditional material application, building on a higher vision of innovation using unique materials. Thus, the strain spokes were introduced, opening up a new era in bicycle manufacturing.
When properly distributed and detail tension adjusted, the strain has proven capabilities of shock absorption and vibration dampening. The strain spokes provide an uncompromised riding experience as well as exceeds the design fundamental of being lightweight.
