Carbon nanotubes have been added to the carbon-resin matrix, creating microbonds between the carbon layers. This greatly improves impact resistance and structural integrity of the frame.
By analyzing function and mechanical constraints of each part of the frame, our engineers have carefully selected different types of carbon fibre, varying in stiffness and strength, to assemble our frame. These fibres are precisely positioned to increase stiffness, comfort or durability. While Gennix R1 and R2 share similar feel and stiffness, the use of UHM ultra high modulus carbon in key areas reduces the frame weight by more than 10%.
By combining several design elements, we are able to create a surprisingly comfortable ride. The W.A.V.E technology joins the chain stay and seat stays in a continued curve to channel and minimize vibrations without sacrificing power transfer. Vertical compliance is significantly increased by the combination of our integrated seat collar and small diameter seat post.
This patented technology (D541,705) uses strategically placed reinforcement ribs that act as an exoskeleton on the frame to increase stiffness of key areas without compromising comfort.
Our advanced multi-monocoque technology increases molding precision by separating the frame into several substructures to allow more complex shapes. Internal polyurethane molds are used to ensure maximum compaction between layers, thus eliminating the possibility of voids. This enables our engineers to remove any excess materials and create a stronger structure with less weight.
By moving bearings inside a wider 86.5mm shell, we have created a massive junction that increases lateral stiffness while minimizing weight. Bottom bracket shell and chain stays are molded into a single carbon unit to strengthen critical areas, all in the goal of providing unprecedented power transfer.
