Tapered 1.5" lower to 1-1/8" upper; 1-1/4" to 1-1/8" is also available. Tapered head tube designs are stiffer and stronger than conventional straight head tubes, with the added benefit of offering a greater surface area for welding. Minimal flex at the front of the frame provides increased steering precision and accuracy.
E-Thru axles offer higher stiffness / rigidity than traditional QR system.
Flat Mount is a road-specific disc brake mounting system developed by Shimano. The clean and simple design accommodates the more compact road specific disc break calipers.
Tubes are precisely machined using high precision robot arm with a 2000W high power laser. The laser cuts the aluminum tube on a three-dimensional curved path, this allows precise machining of complex surfaces.
CMT - Cold Metal Transfer welding technology creates higher penetration, lower heat input welds with low spatter and perfect shape . The CMT welding machine head is mounted to a robotic arm which coordinates the movement along the welding path, while instantaneously matching the welding parameters as needed. The result is a weld that is as good or better than hand welding.
