Made in China?

April 16, 2015 News

Chinese technology being used in bikes marches on.

Now, the Chinese are using Graphene the new “wonder product” in bike components. As with many new products the innovation will first be used in racing and competitive bikes. But, we all know that what is specialist today may well become “everyday” in future. So perhaps before long, we shall be able to report that Graphene is being used in electric bikes.

Vittoria, a Thai-Italian company, who have the rights to the new “wonder material” have been developing the product for two years and is now launching its first product on the cycling market.

A Graphene re-inforced carbon wheel rim is the first product to benefit . The added Graphine increases the lateral stiffness of the wheel, by 50% and up to 30% improvement in strength in the spoke holes. The new rims are generally 20% stronger than standard carbon rims.

Vittoria expects to launch its first tyres with graphene additive, providing lower rolling resistance, better grip and possibly the best tubeless tyres yet in a few months time.

I purchased my E-Life Voyager electric bike from Peter at Axcess. Always nervous when buying online but shouldnt have been concerned at all. Arrived very quickly and Peter Blackman was extremely helpful every step of the way. Would certainly recommend buying from this gentleman and his company without any hesitation. 1st class seller.
Bought the bike for my partner as she had a bad knee , She loves it and she likes the retro styling and it's comfy to
On visiting the Honiton showroom I was able to try out several bikes and the one that immediately felt comfortable and easy to ride was the Hunter Step Through. Good customer service and explanations as to how the bike worked. The bike has enabled me to continue to enjoy cycling, keeping up with my husband and travel further. The ability to pull away from a standing stop at junctions etc is a great benefit and a safety feature.
