Do you have any saddles that are similar in shape / fit as a Fizik aliante??
Hard to comment because I never used an Aliante, but our Hlod saddle seems the most similar to that saddle, but really hard to compare, maybe someone else has that saddle before our Hlod and maybe he could compare it?
Curious to see more of those wheels!
Speaking of saddles, posted this beauty up in my thread but might be relevant to show it here too. More curved rear and a stunning 60,7g!
:beerchug: PLEASE tell us a bit more about this wheel!!!!! Rim depth, shape, and weight you expect would be great!!!!
We started with this project already a few years ago, here just two photo of the wheel just out of the mould, and a raw wheel after some sanding etc. and with a tubular tire on it:
The profile is 45mm, and a 24,5mm wide rim, here you can see the rim, which is hollow:
We developed the technology to make it in one piece, literally monocoque. No glue or any other step. Maybe we could really call it industry leading tech, a lot of knowledge is put into that product to make it till this stage. Still some more work to do. Here just another photo from my mobile phone, a few prototypes laying around:
Don't know if I mentioned, but my big love is also chemistry. I worked a lot as a pyrotechnic, working with all kind of chemistry, but I'm glad I rather quit with that and focused on the composite industry. The resin is a very important part of such product, so we are of course also working on our own resin. I know it will sound like bul**hit to some (well, every company that laminated a tube or rim claims that), but we are working on our own resin with a team, which includes also engineers from IJS Institute from Slovenia, and first samples were already sent for some lab testing, mostly to know how it would perform after a longer period of use. The resin is almost indestructible also on open fire. So it may take some more time, but we want to make it way better than anyone else ever did. And of course lighter. I'll keep you updated about that project, as a Carbon cowboy or anyhow you like it
sorry for those bad photo quality, will upload some better photos in the future..
