DesignAffairs Polymer Clarity Bike

clarity-bike-1

DesignAffairs created what they believe could be a giant leap forward for frame engineering and production for creating a low cost bicycle. The design takes advantage of an advanced polymer which combines high impact resistance, lightweight properties and a gentle flexibility that usually would only be expected on an old Italian steel frame.

The polymer is injection moulded, which allows affordable and precise mass production while enabling unique form factors and a multitude of possible color combinations. Initially the polymer was used in military applications. Even though the compound has a lower density than polycarbonate & acrylic it’s advanced performance includes exceptional impact resistance and ultra-lightweight performance. It also offers outstanding chemical resistance and thermal stability as it is virtually unaffected by most organic and inorganic chemicals and withstands very hot and cold temperatures.
