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.

The bike works really well for me living in Axminster on the Jurassic Coast which is mighty hilly! The disc brakes help here too! A comfortable riding positionand good luggage carrying capability make the bike suit my current requirements perfectly and the staff at the showroom could not be more helpful
Bought 2 Shetland folding bikes. Though a little heavy, both fit comfortably in our estate car. Very well built and great fun. Tackles steep hills with ease and little effort from the riders who are both in their 60s! Whenever we park up they create a great deal of interest from people passing by. The showroom staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
Just the bike i was looking for. Good looking and well built I have had my bike for 7 weeks now and done over 200 miles great
