What is FACT? FACT represents our treatment of composites is a set of integral method, it is also known as function of advanced composite technology. FACT, like any Specialized projects, bikes and equipment is based on the needs of the driver, and then we apply the strict standards to meet the design goals, to best meet the needs of the driver. Design, material selection, manufacturing process and test. For the target driver, senior carbon fiber bicycle and the real performance of equipment to promote.
STEP 1: THE DRIVER NEEDS
According to the experience design of driver – race road car, triathlon, CX, etc. – we consider the sum of all of the best performance, including the rigidity, flexibility, strength and weight, for each product.
STEP 2: THE SECOND STEP
Improvement and optimization. This is our dream of new technology, make each car is as good as possible. For example, after the integration of the axial/fork design reduce the deviation when trample, improve the transmission of power. It is the result of technological innovation.
STEP 3: MATERIAL SELECTION
Before we start making, we choose for each car special fiber, resin and weaving method. And we choose carbon fiber is also important or fiber orientation of fiber manufacturing technology (carbon fiber or how to package is arranged on the frame). A good example of this is our S – Works Roubaix, down pipe, axis and USES the E390 high coefficient of carbon fiber mixture. It is more hard, can reduce the bent frame when trample, thereby better transmission power. These areas use almost zero carbon fiber, the Angle of the frame rigidity is very good.
STEP 4: MANUFACTURING PROCESS
For every car we use carbon fiber technology, choose the appropriate manufacturing technology, drying the frame has been finished. Roubaix frame after the fork, for example, using E240 carbon fiber, a kind of low rigidity coefficient but high stretch strength of carbon fiber.
STEP 5: TEST
Test is a research and development FACT extremely important step in the process of carbon cycle. To ensure that the bicycle the level we are looking forward to, all some car in the laboratory, roads and dirt that several did extensive testing environment. In lab tests, our professional drivers for all the negative focus frame test repeatedly, until satisfied. Achievement is the best explanation.
