Urwahn Bikes just submitted their exclusive high-end racing machine made with 3D printing. For the realization of this special edition, they have joined forces with the lightweight construction experts from Schmolke Carbon. Together they have used the potential of 3D printing technology in the steel frame and combined it with performance-oriented carbon parts. For the exotic coating of the steel frame, which is manufactured entirely in Germany, they prefer to use full copper plating and show once again to display how they master their craft.
The test rider saddled up is none other than track bike world champion Stefan Bötticher. In the Velodrom test field, the advantages of a combination of steel and carbon quickly became apparent, which impressed even the World Champion: a comfortable geometry with brute bottom bracket stiffness meets aerodynamic lightweight construction. The elastic suspension of the rear wheel guarantees additional riding comfort without sacrificing bottom bracket stiffness. This effect is particularly noticeable on longer rides and/or uneven surfaces. A decisive advantage over the competition.
Shifting is done wirelessly with a shifting group from SRAM, while Schmolke reduces the system weight with extremely lightweight carbon components. With a weight of approx. 9.0 kg the steel racing wheel ranks in the midfield of equal racing cars.
With this limited edition version, Urwahn Bikes wants to show once again the technical possibilities to set new standards in design, innovation and quality. Through this online feature, the company would like to announce their project to the big wide world!
