PROLITE 66 TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINUM
Our proven high-end aluminium (6066) is extremely light and durable.
Using triple butted wall thicknesses and hydroforming technology,
we can tune the aluminium tubes to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.
HFS - HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM
Tubes are inserted into negative moulds and a hot emulsion of water and oil is forced through at pressure,
enabling them to be formed into complex shapes.
Using a tapered head tube with 1-1/8" bearings in the top and 1-1/2" in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise,
confidence inspiring steering.
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 ROUTING
Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets.
The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
NACA FASTBACK PROFILE
The aerodynamics are based around a NACA0028 teardrop profile (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) which is truncated. Air moves around the tube as though the missing rear section of the teardrop were still there, saving weight by using less material.
Carbon forks provide superb vibration damping and precise steering.
All road bikes feature a full carbon fork; the steerer and fork blades are all made of carbon.
DOWN TUBE EXIT
Ensures that internally routed cables and wires can’t move freely and remain easily accessible for servicing.
Designing WorldTour bikes is similar to Formula 1: apparently nondescript details can result in saving split seconds. Integrated seat-post clamping minimises turbulence at the top tube.
FLIP FLOP HEAD
Aero bikes deliver the best possible aerodynamics, but superb wind-tunnel performance data is useless if the rider can‘t get into the correct position. The ‘Flip Flop’ head allows seat angles to be optimised for comfort.
