Carrera : Phibra
(complete bikes available, call for pricing)
Developed in the Podium R&D department through collaboration between teams of Italian designers and engineering experts in composite materials, Phibra represents the perfect integration of a futuristic shaped frame with a complex bonded carbon fibre structure, which can be recreated to the biomechanical characteristics of an athlete. The 2B (Double Arc Block) technology used, developed by the Podium R&D department, represents a complete novelty in assembly techniques: two carbon monocoque arc-shaped blocks are bonded with the vertical seat tube creating a compact, balanced structure. In lab tests the mechanical values have proved similar to those of a single monocoque block.
The Teflon cables that run throughout the tubing are specifically designed to reduce the friction factor of the gear and brake wires that they contain, adding the value of durability to the innovative design and technology. There are thus no external additions to compromise the aesthetics and the clean shapes of the frame are fully visible.
Here is the undeniable revolution in the Italian frame tradition: Phibra undoubtedly signals a decisive turning point in the line of road frame development.
