Designed by a guy called Harald Cramer, it’s a custom-made time-trial cycle with all sorts of weird and wonderful innovations. The Y-frame shape means that the Oryx is shock-proof and keeps you in contact with the road at all time, and there is a one-sided fork and chain-stay. In time trial races, like the Contre la Montre at the Tour de France, every second counts, that?s why Oryx possesses an identical pair of wheels which can be removed by the push of a button.
Made of carbon composite, the handlebars, stem and fork are all one piece, with the ergonomic seat post and saddle integrated into the frame. Handlebars connect to frame via a pivot, and the seat even has a hole in it to keep you cool while you work the pedals.
