High pressure hydraulic molding technique allowing tube shape manipulation in order to achieve specific structural characteristics. This process makes it possible to fine-tune each bike’s level of stiffness, comfort and lightness depending on usage requirements.
Mechanically-manipulated tubing forming seat stays are designed to maximize vertical compliance of the rear triangle for a smooth and comfortable ride.
Further lightened where allowable and strenghtened where needed, this series frames are made of high quality six thousand series lightweight aluminum alloy tubing with variable wall thickness. Carefully tig welded, they endure two subsequent heat treatments, dramatically strenghtening the alloy and releasing residual stress from welding. Each frame is then precisely hand-aligned and checked for quality on a jig to make sure it delivers flawless handling.
