Berria Bike has introduced its last bikes in Feria de Madrid. The top models, Bravo Team 29 MTB and Team Belador Road frames are both using the carbon fiber composites.

TeXtreme is based on using spread tows instead of yarns to achieve ultra light weight and high-performance products. This technology achieve better properties on weight, stiffness, strength, etc. compared to those using other carbon fiber materials.

David Vitoria, R&D Manager Berria Bike says: "We are very pleased to have TeXtreme carbon fiber fabrics in our top range of frames. Together with our technologies Triple Monocoque, EPSS and resins CNT Nanotech, TeXtreme has allowed us to build bike frames that have ultra light weight combined with for us previously unthinkable high stiffness values. This has improved the reactivity and the feature set of our bikes."

Alongside the bike industry current TeXtreme® users can be found in Formula 1, Americas Cup, golf shafts, surf boards, aircraft interiors, rowing boats, skis, snowboards, ice hockey sticks, NASCAR and various industrial and advanced aerospace applications.
