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.

Great service from the staff informative and very helpful on choosing my bike. It's was delivered to my address all set up ready to go. Only been on it twice as not had it long but great fun and exercise out in the fresh air. Would recommend.
The bike just suits my wife’s style of riding and the ease of use is awesome. Now she goes uphill and I am left behind. Should have bought one years ago....
I recently tested and purchased the Axcess Exmoor electric bike at Honiton and I am so glad I did as I am now really enjoying cycling again. The Exmoor is a 24" wheel bike ideal for shorter people or not so confident riders that find 26" too big. The Exmoor is very stable, has a very comfortable riding position with front suspension to smooth out the bumps (not usually available on 24" models) and can be ridden with or without the assist to suit the rider. The throttle helps you when you need a bit of assist and with 6 gears and 3 levels of power, cycling is smooth and effortless with no more struggling up hills or against head winds. There are optional colour co-ordinated panniers and other accessories available to complete the package. So if you are thinking about purchasing an electric bike, please visit Peter and his friendly, helpful team at Honiton for some good honest advice in choosing the right bike for you with no sales pressure and excellent customer service. Happy cycling !!
