Laminated Bamboo Bikes
Several aspects of Bamboo Bikes are extremely valuable to both cyclists and bicycle manufacturers: high strength-to-weight ratio, vibration control, and sustainable growth.
“Better vibration-damping capabilities relative to carbon-fibre. Naturally light and stiff material properties. Impressive damage tolerance and eco-friendly sourcing”
- Bamboo is dense and strong, as well as flexible and elastic.
- Four times the shock absorbing than Carbon-Fibre.
- Releases 35% more oxygen than equivalent timer.
Once harvested, bamboo can net up to twice as much fibre as pine, the fasted growing wood crop.
The Bicycle Frame
Bamboo’s tensile strength is stronger than steel, and it withstands more compression than concrete.
A look back at how the development of the Bamboo bike frame progressed over the years.
The Frame passed the stress test (equivalent to 12,500 miles), and was given a Certificate for: ISO BS 4210.
Built To Last
Style 005 Frame passed the stress test (equivalent to 12,500 miles of riding), and was given a Certificate for: ISO BS 4210
Stress test was undertaken by Bureau Veritas, Warrington, UK.
“a very good frame, and flew through the tests”
