Mountain bike frame features carbon fiber

[ Delta 7 Sports ] Payson, Utah, U.S.A.

The frame of the Arantix™ Mountain Bike from Delta 7 Sports includes more than 1,500 linear feet of carbon fiber. Single carbon fiber strands are woven to create the open lattice IsoTruss® structure of each frame tube, and each bundle of carbon fiber strands is wrapped with Kevlar and then baked at 255F for four hours. The ends of the baked tubes are then machined before being joined with molded carbon fiber lugs to make a complete frame. The carbon/Kevlar combination creates a bicycle frame that is dramatically stronger than comparably weighted frames, while being significantly lighter than frames of the same strength.
