CHAPTER2 Tere Road Frameset Module - Matt & Gloss Black
TERE means “be quick, swift and fast” in Maori. TERE is a COMPACT-AERO frame designed to perform and look like a traditional road frame. However, each and every tube profile and transition has been aerodynamically optimized via collaboration with Auckland University Wind Tunnel, the same facilities where Team New Zealand tests their America’s Cup technology.
The TERE has been designed with quality of ride in mind, and that means a well-balanced geometry, allowance for wider format tires and a carefully engineered Toray® carbon lay-up schedule throughout to deliver an engaging ride, letting you push beyond your limits and explore the road less travelled.
As with any new frame design project, the geometry is the foundation to an awesome ride. Using an extensive database of ergonomic data we were able to map out the ideal geometry that matches both the seasoned pro and weekend warrior. The TERE’s geometry has a linear stack and reach correlation from XS all the way to XL just like the human body.
Married to this balanced geometry is a beautiful form factor that elevates the whole experience, employing vibration dampening chainstays and directional high tensile carbon in the BB and head tube areas for power transfer and steering “like it’s on rails”.
Whilst the TERE has been designed to be an all round performer, no short cuts have been taken to ensure that it is also aerodynamic without the inherent penalties of a pure aero road frame, such as excess weight and harsh ride quality. The fork crown has been seamlessly sculpted to the kamm-tail and ribbed head tube to increase the overall stiffness and aerodynamics.
The whole package is finished off with a compliant carbon seatpost, aerodynamically integrated seatclamp, internal cabling and a matching stem and headset to create an elegant yet exhilarating ride.
