Product Description

GENERAL INFORMATION

When Carbon Sports set out to make a Lightweight frameset, it had to be the equal of their wheels, or it wouldn't happen. The result is the Urgestalt. A new beginning for them. Possibly a new round of copycatting for others. The name itself means "original form" which could refer to the origins of the company or that this will become the groundwork for the frames that follow.
 
As befitting the company name, the frame is 790g in a 55, building into a frameset that weighs 1340g, including fork, headset, seat post, clamp, and embedded aluminum chain plate in the right chain stay. Since they know noodles don't handle well and rigidity is the key to efficiency, this bike is stiff. The steerer is a 1 1/8" to 1 1/2" taper so that the front end tracks well whether in the saddle or out, going fast or slow. The BB86 bottom bracket shell gives the oversize central element that is easy to build wide and strong. The slightly ovalized seat post is aero and stiff and comfortable, and with the binding mechanism hidden under the top tube, it's also hidden from the wind.
 
Because they understand that a small person puts different demands on a frame that a tall one, each frame size gets its own size-specific lay-up, so no frame is under-built, nor over-built.
 
When they looked at the attributes that are both very much Lightweight and very much what riders need, they settled on a design that has a racey front end, race-oriented stiffness, but a geometry that favors stability and efficiency, making this great for high speeds, long rides, rough roads, aka anything that you might find. It easily fits 25mm tires, and can work with some tires that are marked larger. The bike is stiff, but also gives real-world comfort, knowing that the key to riding fast for a long time is feeling good.
 
Because they know that what you might want to put on your Urgestalt is as vast as the roads available for travel, the frame is pretty flexible in terms of how you want to build it. Cables run internally and the same runs can be used by mechanical cables, electronic wires, and hydraulic lines. Batteries can run externally, but the seat post is designed to work with internal batteries. The seat post itself is 280mm long (350mm on the 60cm), has 20mm of setback and comes with three sets of hardware, for standard rails, oversized rails, and Selle Italia Monolink posts.
 
The Lightweight Urgestalt is the beginning of a new generation.
