At Eurobike 08, bicycle part manufacturer Asia Seiko introduced its latest development – light weight carbon fiber frame, Fight Weapon – using TeXtreme Spread Tow carbon fiber fabric and TeXero Spread Tow UD tape.

The new frame is remarkably lightweight and durable thanks to TeXtreme Spread Tow carbon fiber fabric and TeXero Spread Tow UD. Together with Oxeon AB, Asia Seiko has developed a unique frame design that features technically-advanced fabric for enhanced performance and esthetics.

TeXtreme Spread Tow carbon fiber fabric and TeXero Spread Tow UD are available in extremely low areal weights, thus reducing the weight of the new frame lower than that of a traditional carbon fiber frames. “We like the material because of its lightweight and exclusive look” explained Soar Tseng, CEO for Asia Seiko, “The 80 gsm TeXtreme material allowed us to reduce the weight while the stiffness increased. This, in turn, gave us a possibility to produce a truly one piece bicycle frame with extension seat post. Also, the looks are really nice and give another dimension to the frame”.

The Asia Seiko bike frame exemplifies the benefits of TeXtreme Spread Tow fabric and TeXero Spread Tow UD. According to Henrik Olofsson, CEO at Oxeon AB, “By combining Asia Seiko's great bike manufacturing expertise with TeXtreme spread tow fabric, we were able to produce a frame that really stands out from its competitors.”

Oxeon AB is a world leader in the field of Spread Tow Reinforcements. Its two product groups – TeXtreme - Spread Tow fabrics and TeXero - Spread Tow UD tapes – are rapidly gaining popularity in a wide variety of diverse applications because of their weight-saving and performance-enhancing capabilities as well as the new looks provided by the materials.
