  • S/T c-t - seat tube (center-top), length of the seat tube from the middle of BB parts to its peak
  • S/T c-c - seat tube (center-center), length of the seat tube from the middle of BB parts to an axle of the upper tube
  • T/T h - top tube horizontal, horizontal lenght of the upper tube
  • T/T a - top tube actual, real lenght of the upper tube
  • H/T - head tube, head tube lenght
  • C/S - chain stay, chain brace lenght
  • W/B - wheel base, wheelbase (front and rear axle lenght)
  • S/T ang. - seat tube angel, angle between the seat tube axis and an imaginary line connecting the axes of the front and rear wheel
  • H/T ang. - head tube angel, angle between the head tube axis and an imaginary line connecting axes of the front and rear wheels
  • F/L - fork length, fork length from the head parts bottom to the middle of the front wheel

Used technologies

Almost zero material fatigue curve. Shock absorption - better ride comfort. Very low weight. These are the basic advantages of carbon as material. Carbon frames made by AUTHOR MONOCOQUE CARBON TECHNOLOGY are precisely "woven" from carbon fibbers. Thanks to the special shaping of each tube and strengthening critical parts creates a connection between the latest technologies in manufacturing  carbon frames and requirements for sport-oriented riders. The used material is Japanese carbon TORAYCA, suppliers of carbon e.g. for F1 or for the production of Boeing aircrafts.
