Fresh out of the studio, our new frame and build is something we have been working on for a while and represents several advances in our production process. It uses an improved compression technique for the carbon fibre, allowing us to increase the fibre to resin ratio and bring the frame weight in at 875 grams.
The frame also has version 2.0 of our in-house produced flat mount/ thru axle dropout system. The dropout system has now moved onto a version 3.0, with several small refinements being incorporated for future builds.
The spec list list for the complete bike is as follows:
Flat Mount Disc, 2 x 11, Ultegra 6800 Di2 with the Dura Ace Syncro Shift firmware update, 3T cockpit, Chris King headset, White Industries CLD hubs, 28mm Vittoria Corsa tyres, Fabric saddle.
Along with the frame being beautifully light, it is also stiff where it matters and extremely comfortable. The latest Plane Frameworks machine is now being ridden around Perth by a happy new owner.
