Frames - Time Trial Bike
Time Trial Bike Frames
There are three common types of material used for time trial frames and they are listed in the table below.
|Carbon||Carbon is becoming more widely used simply because it is light weight and strong. Carbon is a versatile material, meaning it can be shaped into almost any form which is great for reinforcing specific areas of a bike for increased stiffness or absorption.|
|Steel||Steel has for a long time been the most widely used material in bikes. Its benefits are its strength, ease to work with and relative inexpensiveness, however it is heavier than many materials making it less competitive in serious riding circles.|
|Alloy||Alloy frames have lower density and lower strength compared with steel frames but they do have a better strength to weight ratio, giving it a notable weight advantage over steel frames.|
