To follow the trend of lightweight bicycles, to meet the demand of rigidity and strength in riding, Giant launched a fast, light and new road bike named TCR SLR, which is made of aluminum. Their shocking debut was in N1-0405. Compared with normal aluminum bicycles, Giant TCR SLR had its features: It used ultra-lightweight ALUXX SLR6000 aluminum. The frame wall thickness reduced by 20% by fine control technology. Furthermore, enhanced designs for riding are adopted. Bicycles' first tubes, first bowl sets and fork risers are enlarged, enhancing the stability of the front triangle of the frame, increasing the rigidity of the steering precision and handling. It was a kind of aluminum road bicycle with both physical and aesthetic properties, resembling with the appearance and texture of full carbon frame bicycle.
In CHINA CYCLE 2014, Merida bicycles (Booth No.: N1-0805) launched a full-suspension bicycle: ONE FORTY 2B. It adopted an excellent shock structure using the ideas of virtual turning point kinematic. The adoption of this structure on bicycles with more than 120mm length resulted in an increasing sensitivity of rear triangle actuator and a minimum impact of the chain on the properties of the suspension. In the case of braking, with advantages of off-road performance of large wheel diameter (27.5 inch), the structure could maintain active shock absorption performance. Meanwhile, the impact of pedaling force on actuator for shock was also minimized. Merida bicycle, once again demonstrated superior product design capabilities to integrate!
BH, originated in Spain, (Booth No: W1-0915) unveiled a new Triathlon TT bicycle, a top bicycle with excellent performance. The bicycle's frame geometry provides adjustable handle, which allows set at various heights. Seat tubes could simulate the effect equivalent to 74 to 78 degrees in the tube angle, enabling the rider to choose their most suitable position. The original stem and gasket could provide more space to be adjusted. Additionally, front brake calipers were hidden in the back of the fork to form a surface with plane flow lines, reducing the drag co-efficient. Strength enhancement of back by carbon fiber enhanced its accuracy between frame and wheel set to the same level with counterparts in same grade. At last, the design of back-change-lug seat allowed gear’s upgrade of shift performance.
You may witness advanced producing technology, perfect process design, and intelligent parts and components on CHINA CYCLE 2014. All these elements provide strong driving force of innovation for the upgrading of the bicycle industry of China and the world as a whole.
Quick bike (Booth No.: W2-0001): their new super fiber line-drawing wheels, combining high rigidity and light weight for climbing hill, becomes one of the highlights of the exhibition. Rims were handmade using ultra-high modulus carbon fiber. Spokes were manually prepared with Zylon super fiber lines. Combining with specially customized hub, Quick developed a pair of wheel sets. The total weight of Zylon fiber line used in the wheel equaled to only that of one metal spoke which was previously lightest. Abandoning traditional rigid metal spoke, Quick adopted Zylon fiber. Though the weight of Zylon fiber was only 1/50 of that of ordinary spoke, it could sustain 5-times tension as normal spokes. This stable, lightweight and rigid ultra light road wheel sets were finally completed through strict mechanical tests, road tests and other rigorous ones.
WELLGO CYCLE (Booth No.: N2-1305): has won several awards in CHINA CYCLE Creative Product Selection before 2014 with its superior product design and innovation. This year they launched an electronic power pedal. This product could measure value of the power output of left and right foot individually and values were accurate within ±2% range. Unlike other sensors with indirect power detection, they were installed on the contact surface, which was directly affected by the force. Data collection could be achieved directly from pedal force points without further accuracy correction of the translation by programs. Because data were transmitted via ANT+, force measuring structure could be constructed on pedal body without additional equipment. The rechargeable battery could provide a continuous 150 to 190 hours of performance after every full re-charge.
