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.
