Aiming for a "road bike of the world's lightest", carbs Nex the precise reconstruction of the elastic rubber-like material and of using the nanotechnology maintain their rigidity strength even if the weight of the material, such as "X-Fullerene" I adopt the frame of each shape to maximize the function of the frame titanium alloy excellent "rubber metal ※", "box shape", and "perfect circle". Further, by using "Oval Pressed Shaft (OPS) Theory" shape theory of our racket own and raised following property to a road surface is caused Shinara moderately to vibration while maintaining the rigidity. The new technologies and materials of these, I did it with all-carbon road bike frame that combines rigidity, durability, comfort, yet ultra-lightweight. ※ It is the new titanium alloy of a dream that combines has been considered rubber metal is a new material developed by the Toyota Motor group, and not possible with metal material "low modulus of elasticity" and "high-strength".
