Topological Compliance System
The Optimal Balance of Comfort and Performance
To achieve the optimal balance of comfort and performance for our endurance line, we needed geometry uniquely aligned with the demands of long-distance riding and racing. In conjunction with the best geometry, we also needed to optimise frame topology and carbon layup. Through extensive research and analysis of stiffness, resistance, and aerodynamics using FEA and CFD software, we designed frames and forks that offer exceptional vertical compliance and dampens road-induced vibrations. At the same time, they needed to remain impervious to lateral movement, thus ensuring maximum pedaling efficiency for optimal power transfer. Our Topological Compliance System (TPS), was validated by numerous iterations of frame and fork designs tested both on the road and in our research and development laboratory using proprietary vibration testing tools.
