This is made possible by internal support that keeps the carbon layup process stable. The fibre compaction process is continuously controlled during the “cooking” phase by the double mold that allows production at higher pressures than the traditional use of the “plastic bag”, giving the final product a resistance of 20% higher and lower weight. S120 Technology: Rigidity test whose result expresses the ratio between applied force N (newton) and deformation of the frame mm (millimetres). The higher this figure, the stiffer the frame. The strength and durability of this frame sit at the highest level and will withstand any stress and abuse you can put it through.Easy AssemblyWhen you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping.
