Originally introduced at the end of the 19th century as protection against cheap imports in the UK, the term Made in Germany today applies worldwide as a hallmark. It stands for first-class production of high-quality materials and top quality.
Hydroforming means forming metallic tubes or hollow bodies in a closed mold by means of internal pressure. In the bicycle manufacturing tube sets with complex shapes are produced by hydroforming. By this method, you can adjust and molding the wall thickness a required; this can save weight an cost.
Internal Cable Routing
When Internal Cable Routing the cables of the circuit and / or brake cables are routed through the inside of the frame. This allows many advantages in addition to a tidy harmonious appearance. Thus, the internally routed cables are better protected from mud, dirt and other atmospheric agents and their wear-promoting effect.
Quality forks set for season 2017 the Postmount standard (former Standard IS International Standard from 2000). While the brake caliper must be outdistanced laboriously with washers at IS-shots that Postmount mounting is achieved by simply moving the brake caliper has two oblong holes (hole distance 74 mm).
The Tapered headtube ensures particularly at curved road conditions and high speeds for excellent handling. By the conical head tube (Tapered headtube) the weight was reduced in the steering range, while increasing the headset stiffness. This provides more stability while cycling, thus improving the steering and handling of the bike - whether on the road or in the field.
