Brand-new carbon frame
The new URGESTALT frame is the current masterpiece created by the carbon-specialists from Friedrichshafen. Its construction is completely new, and comes with new geometry and weighs only 790 grams – perfect for lightweight enthusiasts that are looking for highest standards together with stiffness, quality and safety.
An elegant design and constructive sophistication are combined with practical lightweight engineering: Driven by the idea of developing a classic race bike frame with efficient power transmission and ideal load values, the Lightweight carbon-specialists paid attention to every little gram when designing the URGESTALT, without losing sight of their own claims to stiffness, durability and safety. That is why the Urgestalt carbon frame exceeds usual test standards and is certified according to the high level of the renowned EFBE test laboratory. The new structure of the individual carbon layers is ideal for the flux of forces and is individually elaborated for each frame size. This guarantees consistent stiffness and safety, while the improved vibration behaviour increases the comfort during long days on the saddle. The frame and the matching fork (340 g) are equipped with a classic calliper brake mount.
The developers took special care with the compatibility of the frame. Lightweight fulfils the wish of many fans for more flexibility in the structure. The seat tube with its clamp for convenient adjusting is compatible with a conventional seat post (27.2 mm). Lightweight is now also offering a fitting seat post with 20 mm offset. The frame and fork are made for tires with a width of up to 28 mm.
The newly developed frame is not an aero-concept but an all-purpose tool that achieves a unique ride feeling in combination with Lightweight wheels. Whether comfortable structure or super hard setup for performance purists – both can become a reality with the new URGESTALT. Due to its compact design and light weight of frame and fork, even custom builds of less than 6 kg are no problem.
The optimised dynamic frame geometry with slightly sloping top tube and extended asymmetrical chain stays additionally increase the smooth running characteristic. The frame is compatible with all common electronic and mechanic drivetrains. Gear cables are installed on the inside and add to the clean, elegant appearance. The frameset consisting of frame, fork, headset and seat post clamp is available in the colours black/anthracite, black/white and black/red and approved for a permissible system weight of 120 kg.
