14CARBON is a new brand from Holland that uses nanotechnology to create highly strong, stiff and nearly scratch free & nearly unbreakable bike frames.
It took more than 3 years of development employing chemists and 3D engineers together to develop our “Nano Bike’. The nanomaterial used for our frames is an alternative for ‘carbon’ composites, applying nanomaterials such as nano graphene, nano polymers, nano silicium and nano aluminium. Beside that we apply a nano coating that is very hard, smooth and aerodynamic.
Cyclocross, MTB, gravel, road and time-trial
14CARBON’s line of products focusses on cyclocross, MTB, gravel, road and time-trial. The first model is a full nano bike: the CO1-Cyclocross. Our semi nano bike called CO2-Aero is build up with a ‘carbon’ frame and finished with a nano coating.
Fully 3D Engineered Design and Production Technology
The nano frames of 14CARBON are produced in The Netherlands using a blend of 3D technology, classic die-cast moulding and innovative nanomaterial composites. The production technology enables high flexibility in design and relative low cost of production.
Three Layer Nano Coating
The 3 layer nano coating was developed in close cooperation with large chemical industries and nano engineers. This 3 layer coating provides a hard, smooth very aerodynamic layered composite on top of the frames. The final layer using silicium is highly ‘hydrophobic’, meaning it repels water, air and dirt very strongly.
