    HIGHLIGHTS

    CF2 frame with more relaxed geometry than the CF4. Truncated ‘NACA Fastback’ profiled down tube and seat tube for aerodynamics. Tapered 1 1/8" to 1 1/2" head tube for confidence inspiring handling. Caliper version runs quick release hubs, Disc version has through axle for extra lateral stiffness and complete internal cable routing. Flat mount rear disc brake with disc cooler technology.

    The 12 mm bolt through axles for greater wheel stiffness and precise disc alignment when replacing wheels. The custom axle lever is removable and has a 4 mm Allen key included, so, for example, stem and seat post clamps can be tightened and loosened.

    All models feature a full carbon fork with a tapered steerer to give precise, confidence-inspiring steering. All SCULTURA Alloy and CF2 carbon models feature a ‘regular’ 1 1/8" to 1 1/2" taper. The high-end SCULTURA CF4 frame has a slimmed down front profile and uses a 1 1/8" to 1 1/4" taper, the new REACTO frames a 1 1/2" to 1 1/4"taper.

    Our wind tunnel learnings from the REACTO design project have been used to create a smaller aerodynamically optimised ‘NACA Fastback’ tube profile. The more extreme truncation of the teardrop shaped tubes enables perfect airflow at the lowest possible weight.

    A forged aluminium part under the front and/or rear disc brake caliper draws heat away through CNC-milled cooling fins giving 35 % less heat build-up and faster temperature reduction for a stable braking performance.

    Our top end CF4 frame brings in 850 g (size M/L) in the caliper brake version whilst the CF4 Disc frameset tips the scales at 1000 g (size M/L). Incredible readings while offering a lifetime warranty on all our frames, even when raced. 

    The SCULTURA DISC and rim version can be fitted with 25 mm wide tyres, providing maximum traction and transferring the improved braking power to the road. The 25 mm tyres also offer improved comfort. 

    Technologies

    IMAGE

    FLEX-STAY

    The seat and chainstay profile and carbon lay-up schedule are adapted to work like a flat leaf spring, absorbing surface bumps and reducing vibrations.

    IMAGE

    X-TAPER HEADTUBE

    Our X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.

    IMAGE

    INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

    Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.

    IMAGE

    DI2 READY

    Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.

    IMAGE

    NANO MATRIX CARBON

    To protect the integrity of carbon frames, the fibres are bonded together with an epoxy resin with added nano particles, increasing impact resistance by up to 40%.

    IMAGE

    AWS

    When creating the individual carbon elements, an inflatable bladder is used to ensure there are no wrinkles inside the tube as these can add weight and create weakness. This results in a lighter, stiffer and stronger frame.

    IMAGE

    NACA FASTBACK PROFILE

    The aerodynamics are based around a NACA0028 teardrop profile (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) which is truncated. Air moves around the tube as though the missing rear section of the teardrop were still there, saving weight by using less material.

    IMAGE

    DISC COOLER

    A forged aluminium component under the front and/or rear caliper allowing heat to dissipate through CNC-milled cooling fins. Tests show that temperatures are reduced by around 35 % and cooling times are shortened, optimising the performance of the brake.
