HIGHLIGHTS

6061 double butted and technoformed aluminium frame. Equipped with mounts for rack, mudguards and kickstand.

Our CROSSWAY TFS frame forms a link between our road and mountain bike frames in design and functionality. The steeply sloping top tube provides an excellent standover height in every riding situation, and the hidden cable routing underneath the down tube makes the frame look clean and protect the cables from moisture and dirt. The MTB inspired oversized tubing, and the tapered head tube provides superb frame stiffness and optimum steering precision.

All our CROSSWAY models are equipped with suspension forks to iron out any surface bumps. Adjustable ahead stems and suspension seat posts are also fitted on most SPEED models, providing extra comfort and an adjustable riding position. The sportier TFS models feature a regular seat post and stem to reduce weight.

All CROSSWAY 100 up to XT-EDITION models feature tyres with reflective strips on their sidewalls, improving visibility on the road.

Mudguards, racks and kickstands can be added to all CROSSWAY models, making them usable in many circumstances.

RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM

We use a minimum of 6061 grade aluminium on all our bikes. It’s particularly well suited to being shaped with our hydroforming and technoforming processes, which allow us to vary the wall thickness to create double-butted tubing and complex frame shapes. It’s also an alloy that welds easily, and once it has been carefully heat treated to maximise strength, it means we can create strong and lightweight bicycle frames for you to enjoy.

TFS - TECHNO FORMING SYSTEM

Manipulating the tube shape and thickness greatly impacts the appearance, weight and functionality of our aluminium frames. One technology that allows us to do that is TECHNO FORMING, where plain aluminium tubes get mechanically formed by using an external form and an internal metal core. The result, beautifully shaped tubes with varying wall thickness, ready to be used to create our technoformed aluminium frames.

F-MOUNT

Being able to turn your bike into an all-weather commuter that has mudguards and other fittings can be a real plus, in particular when riding on wet and perhaps muddy roads and tracks on a regular basis. To make fitting easy, some of our bikes are F-MOUNT equipped. These integrated fittings mounts make adding mudguards fast and simple. Please note that some bikes require model-specific mudguards.

C-MOUNT

Similar to our F-MOUNT, where various fixing points for mudguards are part of the frame offering, the C-MOUNT equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated, making fitting fast, simple and reliable. The C-MOUNTS are an additional feature that improves the day-to-day versatility by adding loading capacity to your bike, ideal for commuting and shopping trips. Please note that some bikes require model-specific rear racks.
