Top tube flat-oval section blends into steer tube with a nice fin that sensibly helps you to point the apex of hi-speed turns with laser precision. Generously dimensioned downtube ensures torsional rigidity by the log of its wide round section. Beefy tapered chainstays feature progressively increasing lamination layers, this translates into livelier reactions under acceleration.
Crank and fork bearings touch the frame through precisely cnc'ed AL7075T6 fittings (no looseness nor squeaks). Seat-tube enlarges its section whilst descending then widens up at the BB area, all laminated with twice progressive layerings. Downtube flattens at bottle cage fittings and widens up to oval at the BB shell to keep crank forces under good control.
Top tube and seatstay merge just right where FEM analisys does suggest they should to manage stress well. Extreme reduction of stress riser areas is at the base of Extralite's engineering philosophy.
3D cnc AL 7057 TX dropouts offer a truly solid fitting of the rear hub axle and wheel, rear derailleur bolts on safer too. Additionally these tiny cnc sculptures can withstand to countless QR opening & closings (unlike commonly used carbon dropouts).
