RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM 2018
We use a minimum of 6061 aluminium. The pay back is that it’s possible to make lighter & more advanced frames. We use an additional heat treatment & double-butted wall thicknesses to produce light & stiff frames.
TFS - TECHNO FORMING SYSTEM 2018
Technoforming is a mechanical forming process, shaping the tubes by using negative moulds, at times combined with a metal internal core.
X-TAPER HEADTUBE 2018
Using a tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top & 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" in the bottom creates superb stiffness & precise, confidence inspiring steering.
SMOOTH WELDING 2018
Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance you will be convinced it is carbon.
INTERNAL CABLE 2018
Cables are routed through the frame, entering & exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture & dirt.
DOWN TUBE EXIT 2018
Ensures that internally routed cables & wires can move freely without causing any trouble whilst remaining easily accessible for servicing.
The suspension fork and/or rear shock can be locked, either directly or via a ‘remote control’ lever on the handlebar.
C-S POST MOUNT DISC 2018
Post mount disc brake calipers fit directly onto the seat stay for a strong & light connection whilst a chainstay post mount positions the caliper on the chainstay within the rear triangle for extra protection & better distribution of braking forces. Another benefit is that internal cable routing is also easier & neater via the chainstay.
15-100 THRU-AXLE 2018
Selected front forks use a 100?mm wide through axle 12 or 15?mm in diameter to increase lateral stiffness. A 142?mm wide 12 mm rear axle fixed directly into the frame increases rear end stiffness whilst simplifying wheel removal & replacement.
‘F-Mount’ equipped bikes have integrated fittings for mud guards (some bikes require model specific mud guards), making fitting fast & simple.
K-MOUNT DROP-OUT 2018
Integrated mount on the chainstay to fit a MERIDA kick stand.
‘C-Mount’ equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated (some bikes require model specific rear rack), making fitting fast, simple & reliable.
