From the press release:

Each Arantix Mountain Bike frame takes approximately 300 hours to build, as Delta 7 Sports workers weave single carbon fiber strands to create the open lattice IsoTruss structure of each frame tube. Each bundle of carbon fiber strands are wrapped with Kevlar and then baked at 255 degrees Fahrenheit for four hours. The ends of the baked tubes are then machined before being joined with molded carbon fiber lugs to make a complete frame.

The completed frame weighs just 2.75 pounds.

1.25kg. Thats pretty lite. I suspect thought that once ridden though some serious boggy shitty terrain, you can add a few kgs with stuff getting trapped in the webs.

Muz do you have a link? Would like to check out what they say about the strength/durability characteristics.

have a squizz here: http://delta7sports.com/

Thats a way cool frame… Although the mind wonders how long one would last as a fixie :evil:

You’d have to gladwrap it.
