Carbon Bikes Are Very Modern
Aug 14, 2017


Carbon Bike is the fourth generation of bicycles in the history of the product, also known as the "Black revolution" bicycle, when the word carbon fiber material gradually into our Chinese friends around, because of its price reasons, so that most ordinary cyclists avoid far away. But carbon fiber will gradually become the mainstream of bicycle development.

The use of carbon fiber as a high-tech material on bicycles has been a thing of the last 10 years. Strictly speaking, carbon fiber is not a pure carbon element, Carbon Bike but a mixture of carbon that is woven and bonded with epoxy resins.

Early carbon fiber, for reasons of technology, uses epoxy resins that even decompose in sunlight. With the progress of science and technology. Carbon bikes Use advanced 16K of carbon fiber, Carbon Bike which has even more strength than steel, and has a lifelong commitment to quality assurance.

Generally speaking, carbon fiber as a carbon bicycle material has the following characteristics: 1. Very light weight: 1200 grams of carbon fiber highway racks are already visible everywhere. Because the quality of carbon only 1.6 grams/cubic centimeters, so the production of about 1 kg of the frame is no longer a dream.

Good absorption shock performance. Carbon fiber can absorb vibrations effectively and maintain good rigidity. This feature makes it a good competition-grade material.

Can make various shapes of the frame. And the general metal frame manufacturing process is not the same, carbon bike racks are generally the first to make molds, and then on the mold to pay carbon fiber chips, finally with epoxy resin for bonding. This process can make use of aerodynamics as a wind-resistant, minimal frame.

At present, the defects of this material are mainly two points: 1. Complex stress calculations. Carbon fiber frame is carbon fiber, it is characterized by strong tensile strength, but weak shear strength, Carbon Bike processing requires complex stress calculation (longitudinal rigidity, transverse rigidity), according to the calculation of carbon fiber sheet overlap. Generally speaking, the impact of carbon fiber resistance is quite good, and the ability to resist puncture is very poor. That is to say you do not want to fall vertically, it is afraid that the process of vertical shot hit one or two pieces of sharp pebbles, that can not be taken to weld a little can be solved.

The price is expensive, compared with titanium, the price of carbon bike rack is even more, to the top of the carbon fiber frame price is tens of thousands, and the C40 and C50 of the division of the price of more than 20,000 yuan. This is mainly because the carbon fiber frame production process requires a lot of manual, Carbon Bike and scrap rate is high, resulting in a large increase in costs.

Considerations

From the appearance we can easily distinguish the frame. The style is rugged, the shape is wild aluminum frame, the tube body is slender, the bone feeling is full of steel frame, and that does not have any painting, the whole body exudes the metallic luster is the titanium frame, the carbon fiber surface is covered with each kind of 3D cloth surface, extremely has the modern feeling.
