MAX Carbon Technology
MAX Carbon Technology pushes the boundaries of lightweight construction: we use highly rigid high modulus carbon fibres in a fibre-based design to optimise the weight-to-stiffness ratio which, when coupled with our high-pressure moulding process, achieves maximum strength and withstands test procedures significantly above the standard. This has enabled us to construct the world's lightest frame.
Rapid Axle Technology (R.A.T.)
R.A.T. stands for Rapid Axle Technology and is the world's fastest floating axle. This is the first thru-axle system to combine the stability, alignment and lateral stiffness of a floating axle with extremely fast wheel changes. The simplicity and speed of the patented R.A.T. system exceeds that of even conventional quick-release devices.
R.A.T. thru-axles are sold under licence in the UK (UK patent GB2414971B)
Stable Stiffness Per Size (S.S.P.S.)
In order to ensure that all bike sizes offer the same ride characteristics, all available frame heights are individually designed and feature a specially developed carbon lay-up. This Stable Stiffness Per Size (SSPS) production method ensures that all sizes provide the perfect weight-to-stiffness ratio.
