Simplon - SILKCARBON SPORT M1
Symbolic picture: For illustrative purposes the product is shown in another color or variation.
Innovation in Perfection!This lightweight bike with its perfect shapes has won design prizes and has beaten competitors in several tests. The carbon fiber with its high ultimate strain let this bike be a perfect choice for daily use even with its lightweight construction. Due to its special comfort conception of the frame, the seatpost and the carbon fork, it can be ridden without suspension fork while still being very comfortable. Because of its stiffness its also certified to be used as a child trailer.
The frame comes with a unique design language, outstanding lines and a completelyinternal cable routing . The usedunidirectional high modulus carbon fibers from the Japanese technology leader Toray have 65-85% more tensile strength than conventional carbon fibers. These are directly impregnated by the Simplon-specifichot-melt process with epoxy resin and solvent free. This minimization of the resin content in the fiber composite saves weight, while the balanced matrix ensures high rigidity. PU-foam-cores work together for crease-free curing of the carbon fiber layers. These melt out during the curing process and allow a more robust and efficient modeling of the carbon-tubes. By usingTRIPLE-FUSION technology narrow tolerances in the manufacturing process are the result. There are nearly no differences in weight and stiffness between individual frames. The specialVIBREX® technology of the outstanding slim seatstays with the seatpost and almond shaped upper tube causes an extraordinarily great riding comfort. Simplon calls the combination of these technologies Flex Transfer. A bigger volume of the headtube increases stiffness and makes stearing much more precise. The Postmount disc brake mount at the rear comes with an integrated side stand mount.
