Nanotubes Make Products Stronger, Faster, Better

In the world of professional cycling, a bicycle's weight can either make or break a race. Enter the BMC SLC01, the world's first 100% carbon nanotube frame weighing only 2.11 pounds. The entire frame is constructed from fibers that are precision molded to eliminate every metal fitting to save weight. Carbon Nanotubes are a spin-off from the discovery of the C60 Buckyball and its properties. Nanotubes are perfectly formed cylinders of graphite that exhibit remarkably scalable strength. With these forthcoming applications in technology, human performance in velodrome and touring racing will dramatically increase.
