At 890 grams and a tensile strength factor close to steel, the Super 7 is setting a new standard for stiff and light carbon frames. Using a compact frame design without a sloping top tube insures that the geometric integrity and strength is retained, while at the same time allowing for a very light frame. The frame is designed to be strong and stiff first, then light.
|The Super 7 concept was to create the lightest and stiffest road frame on the market. To do so, we teamed up with the most advanced carbon factory in Taiwan. Although they also produce for most of the other high performance brands, our engineers are former employees of the factory and have specialized knowledge and experience from other brands successes and failures. This, along with the development of high modulus carbon 3K weave, allowed us to create the Super 7.
The fork on the Super 7 frame set is a full carbon, aerodynamic design with enhanced strength. We only make the strongest high performance forks that are still extremely light weight. All high modulus carbon 3K weave using an aerodynamic shape that has been engineered geometrically to further strength.
|The geometry of the frame is a little different from most other high-end frames. The frame is compact, using a short head tube and a slightly shorter wheel base and reach. This allows for very quick acceleration and a very responsive frame. The shape of the seat-stays and chain-stays makes for a very comfortable ride, yet the shape of the tubes themselves, makes them very strong. The over-sized bottom bracket insures that all the energy from the cranks is transferred directly into acceleration. No power is lost. This is the first thing riders notice when riding the Super 7!|
The main feature of the 890 gram frame is using the high modulus carbon composite 3K weaves that are ultra strong and allows us to thin out the tube walls, where geometrically safe, while adding more material where it is needed to make the frame stiff and solid. The design is optimized for the best weight-to-stiffness ratio. The advanced layup of the carbon weave is what makes the frame so light, yet safe and stiff. We use variations in directional layup, wall thicknesses, even variations in modulus stiffness. The high modulus carbon composites are not proprietary, but they are very expensive, which is why hardly any other brand uses them.

Note 1: The stand-over height is measured to the top tube directly above the bottom bracket.
Note 2: The above head tube lengths are for integrated headsets. To compare to non-integrated head tubes, deduct 20mm from the above lengths to adjust for the stack height needed for non-integrated headsets.
