Core Design Features

We believe there’s five areas to improve on a bike, before we can consider it better. Explore some of the key technologies that help us deliver these improvements.

Aero Cable Management

Aero Cable Management

Cable paths are engineered, from the lever to the brake or derailleur, to reduce aerodynamic drag with no sacrifice in performance.

Aero, Simplicity

BBright

BBright

BBright increases system stiffness and reduces frame weight while allowing for a large range of crank compatibility in a modern press fit system.

Stiffness, Weight

Carbon Dropouts

Carbon Dropouts

Tough, compression-molded dropouts save weight with no sacrifice in strength versus traditional metal dropouts.

Simplicity, Weight

Dropped Down tube

Dropped Down tube

Positioning the down tube perfectly saves drag on the system by taking into account the interaction between the front wheel and the frame.

Aero

Extended Seat Tube Cutout

Extended Seat Tube Cutout

A close-fitting curve in the seat tube trailing edge shields the leading edge and top of the rear wheel significantly improving aerodynamics.

Aero

Partial Seat Tube Cutout

Partial Seat Tube Cutout

A close-fitting curve in the seat tube partially hides the rear wheel improving aerodynamics with no weight penalty.

Aero, Weight

Shaped for Bottles

Shaped for Bottles

Drinking is something that every rider needs to do. Taking this into account during design results in a faster overall package.

Aero

Shielding Seat Stays

Shielding Seat Stays

Hiding the rear brake from the wind, not from the mechanic. Properly formed seat stays hide the brake and improve air flow over the calliper.

Squoval

Squoval

A library of shapes that combine the attributes of a square and an oval to achieve an ideal balance of stiffness, weight, and aerodynamics.
