This now-legendary platform is our most aerodynamic offering – a purebred racing machine based on exhaustive simulations and fluid dynamics analysis. 990g of powerful shaping is optimized to slip through the air while relentlessly transmitting every watt to the road. The agony of a fast, windy breakaway cannot be reduced, thankfully the sprint will come a few seconds sooner aboard this weapon. A carbon layup that blends Vectran© fibers with high-strength and high-modulus carbon balances performance with the necessary strength and damping needed for all-out efforts.
Braided Carbon Structure is the weaving of dry fibers into complex bi-directional ‘socks.’ These tubes of fiber are easy to tune with different materials. BCS also allows something that is unheard of in the cycling world; continuous fibers that run the full length of a structure.
Resin Transfer Moulding is the best way to mould carbon. By laying up dry fibers and then injecting resin at high pressure between rigid external AND internal molds, air pockets and voids are eliminated. Unlike prepreg air bag moulding, RTM quality is uniform and consistent.
IS IT YOUR TIME?
The Scylon rider is a strong athlete who wants a bike that will reward input to the pedals above all, while providing any aerodynamic advantage possible. The high-tech, stylish shaping of Scylon announce this rider means business – whether sprinting for the line or relaxing mid-ride with an espresso.
TIME didn’t necessarily start with the idea of making more efficient use of materials, but in fact many of our processes are less wasteful than industry-standard carbon production. It’s not a secret that working with carbon is not a green practice, but this doesn’t mean there’s no value in using cleaner methods – reducing and reusing whenever possible and meeting or exceeding strict EU environmental impact guidelines.
