Semi-hydroformed tube sets

A combination of normal and hydroformed tubes allows a specific power flow in each frame part and also offers a good price-performance ratio.

FEM-optimised

Complex calculations for uncomplicated solutions.

Every last detail of our FEM-optimised frames has been improved using complex calculations. This results in simple solutions that are much more complex than they appear.

Forged chainstay yoke

A solution forged in heaven.

The connection between the chainstay and bottom bracket is a crucial point on the bike. With our elaborate forged solution we achieve a very high degree of stiffness and strength.
