CeramicsSpeed launches handcrafted bike with 3D printed pulley wheel system
CeramicsSpeed has gone public with its innovative luxury bike part. Mosaic Cycles and ENVE have collaborated with CeramicSpeed to create the new 3D printed hollow Titanium Oversized Pulley Wheel system. This pulley wheel part was showcased at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show last weekend.
CeramicSpeed is a well-known Danish supplier of ceramic bicycle bearings, which was founded by Jacob Csizmadia 17 years ago. The company has to its credit the usage of NASA bearing technology to advanced bikes used in professional racing. CeramicSpeed is highly acclaimed for its affluent merchandise which is usually sought after by professional bikers all over the world.
CeramicSpeed’s beautifully handcrafted the 3D printed titanium part is priced at a whopping $1,700 or €1,500. The design of the wheel is inspired by the national flower of Denmark and the impressive wheels are 3D printed in titanium. This has resulted in lightweight cycle wheels which are twice as resilient and durable. The R&D team at CeramicsSpeed has pulled off an excellent job that has combined the arch design of the daisy with the resilient frame of the grain straw. The 3D pulley wheels come down excellently on all the principles functionality, superior performance, and high-quality. The 3D printed pulley wheels are compatible with the CeramicSpeed OSPW systems and are highly resistant to friction due to its high-end coated CeramicSpeed bearings.
At the North American Handmade Bicycle Show, the company unveiled its new wheel pulleys as part of a handmade bespoke racing bike. Mosaic Cycles have worked on the titanium frame while the stem, fork, seat post and wheels were manufactured by ENVE. The wheels include ENVE’s carbon road hubs and CeramicSpeed bearings. This new bike also houses CeramicSpeed’s first outboard headset offering, and the 3D printed hollow Titanium Oversized Pulley Wheels are priced at $1700.
