Our shared philosophy led to an exciting opportunity to work with Innegra as their exclusive bicycle development partner.
INNEGRA HIGH PERFORMANCE FIBER
Our goal is to make the ALFA the highest performing, most durable and safest bicycle possible.
Innegra™ HMPP is a high performance fiber used in composite and textile applications which can be converted into many different reinforcements.
Each ALFA incorporates Innegra S High Modulus Polypropylene fibers in strategic, high-risk areas such as the top tube, seat stays and in some forks. This application dramatically improves the impact resistance and greatly reduces the chance of catastrophic failure.
The Mitsubishifibers, pre-pregged in Irvine, California, provide the right balance of strength and stiffness in our structure. Using high quality resin like the Newport 301 gives excellent and repeatable part quality out of the tool.
This allows us to reduce our finishing times, one of the ways we are able to be competitive with overseas manufacturing.
