carbon / white / yellow
Top-carbon road bike Author Charisma 77 with carbon fork. Road racing special with UCI certificate. Carbon models have frames from Japanese carbon fibers Torayca, which are used even for F1 cars. With the ability to tune individual parts of the frame with a different fiber orientation, Charisma offers to riders both enough of torsional rigidity and comfort, especially in the form of absorption shocks from the road. Whether on quality asphalt or adoquins ride becomes more pleasurable and the rider can better focus on his performance.

The best from classical racing geometry, curved top tube lies horizontally and very smoothly passes into the seat stays. Their minimalist cross-section is what always allows rider to feel less and less shocks due to the absorption. Conversely, tapered head tube with reinforced bottom diameter of 1.5 inches offers perfect rigidity while going thru bends. Thanks to the racing components set Shimano Dura Ace, carbon wheel set Mavic Cosmic Carbon or saddle Fizik Arione  R3 you can focus for 100% only on your performance and overcoming your limits!

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.
UCI certificated
UCI trademark that identifies frames and forks "Approved for racing use." The model, which is marked with this sign, may be used without problems for professional racing.
