EDITOR

The Editor is an ultra-light urban bike bursting with state-of-the-art high end components - including the Gates drive belt and Alfine 11 speed hub gears. It's all about combining comfort, speed and great handling. But it was also important to our designers that this bike had sleek and elegant looks. The Editor represents a virtuoso performance of style, speed and skill; an efficient bike using cutting edge technology.

Frame

Frame: Because we're using an advanced drive belt, we added special features to the Editor's double butted aluminium frame. The precision-forged Split & Slide dropout can be opened to fit the belt, and accurately adjusted with two screws. When we were designing the frame we aimed for a specific torsional stiffness, because this is the only way the belt can be aligned accurately when under pressure. As for why the frame is so light, only our engineers know the reason for that (and they're not telling...)

Components

Features: The Editor is kitted out exclusively with high end components designed for urban use, including the Shimano Alfine gear system with 11 speed hub and Alfine shifter, and matching Deore BR-M615 disc brakes. This high tech bike features the Gates CDX CenterTrack crank and matching drive belt, whose groove system ensures that it's always perfectly aligned. It's also absolutely silent and needs virtually no maintenance. The Editor can easily be retrofitted with mudguards, a kickstand, luggage rack and frame lock, making it suited to a wide range of uses. The minimalist rigid aluminium fork perfectly complements the frame's sleek design and saves weight, whilst also ensuring that the steering is direct and precise.

Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.

      • Advanced Mechanical Forming

        With our Advanced Mechanical Forming technology we can mechanically transform different frame tubes and thus optimize them without material-wearing welding work for the respective requirements. Along the obtained organic look, the production method is primarily motivated by functional reasons. Multiple converted tubes enable us to manufacture lighter and also stiffer aluminum frames.

      • Aluminium Superlite

        Extremely high tensile strength heat-treated 7005 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and has high elongation. Our Superlite tubes are double butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.

        This elaborate procedure with doubled weld seams has two advantages: On the one hand, it improves the firmness of the
        weld seams and minimizes the load peaks on the tube welds through energy flow and on the other hand, it helps the frame
        to a better and more organic look due to the smooth and hardly noticeable welds.

      • Split&Slide Dropout

        The SPLIT function allows the frame to open at the rear dropout to enable a drive belt to be mounted. The SLIDE function at the horizontal adjustable dropout allows wheel adjustment and chain/belt tension to be made easily without having to readjust the disc brakes. Adjustment screws avoid readjusting the wheel and ensure perfect function and durability.

        On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. We use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
