Carbon Fiber is an extremely stong, resistant and light material. As well as bamboo, CF is no subject to fatigue, so there will not be any acumulable damage to your bike. The use of unidirectional fibers lets us design how the structure all the way through the bike works. The species of bamboo that we use for the bikes is commonly known as “natural steel” of “solid bamboo”. It can handle up to 1 ton per Bamboo bikes provide the smoothest rides available, this is because bamboo frames absorb more that 4 times the vibrations than carbon fiber frames. This feature makes our frames ideal for long rides (ex.g. 100km per day), let the frame handle the vibration and not We are a company that designs and fabricates bicycle frames made out of bamboo and carbon fiber joints.
