About Carbon Fiber bikes
Carbon fiber not only has the intrinsic characteristics of carbon materials, but also has the flexibility of textile fibers. It does not share the 1/4 steel, but the intensity is very strong. And its corrosion resistance is outstanding, is a new generation of fiber reinforced. Carbon fiber is widely used in civil, military, construction
aerospace and super sports car field.
Carbon fiber bicycle (carbon bike) is mainly in the high-grade racing bicycle, as a new material, carbon fiber mainly used in frame (carbon), fork, wheel group (carbon knife rim).
The characteristics of carbon fiber frame is “light, good rigidity, shock absorption of good”, however, give full play to the excellent properties of carbon fiber, technically look not so easy, the quality difference between the carbon fiber material manufacturers is larger. In consideration of the cost, the bicycle manufacturers are unlikely to use a high level of carbon fiber to make the frame. Although there is the realistic problem, but carbon fiber frames or with other materials do not have the advantages, making 8, about 9kg of lightweight bicycles, the carbon fiber lightweight bicycles, ascent can best reflect the advantages, ascent smooth and refreshing. And not like some of the light of the aluminum alloy frame, when climbing the slope of a backward pull.
(1) can be made of light weight frame
Carbon fiber frame is the carbon fiber in the direction of the occurrence of stress and the strength of the layers. The carbon fiber frame is very light, which is composed of its density and strong tensile strength.
(2). Shock absorbent
Carbon fiber is used to make the disabled for sports or a special spring are used in various fields. The performance of its excellent shock absorption, making no shock bike. The ELEVATED frame of the SCOTT plant is known as the. But the quality differences between the various manufacturers are larger, and some very hard, so the frame ride to know good or bad.
(3) can be made of various shapes of the frame
The basic shaping method of carbon fiber is to lay a fiber sheet on the die and then flow into the resin and burn it. Can be made into various shapes of the frame, such as the Y TREK frame.
Bicycle is a means of transport plays an indispensable part in people’s daily life, has the advantages of low cost, simple maintenance, convenient to use by people around the world love, formed a huge consumer market for bicycle, along with the fast development of modern society, the bicycle is not only transportation, has a set of fitness, travel, contests and other functions. The grade of bicycles depends on the choice of materials and workmanship. The typical low, middle and high grade bicycle frames are made of carbon steel, chromium molybdenum alloy and aluminum alloy and carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is a new kind of composite material, which has the advantages of light weight, high specific strength, high specific stiffness, and can be designed and easy to shape, so that the design of the structure has a higher structural efficiency.
