Fizik’s Antares Versus EVO 00 Adaptive

Hold onto yer butts!

Fizik utilizes new 3-d printing technologies on their new Antares Versus EVO 00 Adaptive and the result is the most unique saddle I’ve seen, yet it’ll cost you! The Adaptive saddle padding is crafted by Carbon 3D using its revolutionary Digital Light Synthesis technology.

“DLS is an additive manufacturing process that uses digital ultraviolet light projection, oxygen-permeable optics, and programmable liquid resins to produce parts with excellent mechanical properties, resolution and surface finish.”

Sounds high tech right? Well, it comes at a cost. 390.00€. See more at Fizik.

Mark from Prova Cycles’ Ripido Prototype MTB, aka the ParTi Hardtail

During the ENVE Open House framebuilder exhibit, one builder traveled further than the others: Mark from Prova Cycles in Melbourne, Australia. I’d never seen a Prova in person. Instead, I’ve had to check out his work via the lens of FYXO and the Prova Instagram. Mark learned at the Bicycle Academy in the UK and has been really putting in work on his brand. Let me tell you. It shows.

Bastion Cycles Uses 3D Printed Titanium Lugs with Carbon Tubes

We’ve seen previous examples of using 3D printing to not only develop a bicycle frame, but inform its design. In my opinion using this technology to manufacture custom lugs which are then bonded to carbon tubing, resulting in a truly customizable geometry is one of the more practical uses, and that’s what Bastion Cycles is attempting to offer… Their website is up in its infancy, but there’s plenty of information to keep you engaged. Not to mention that clean disc road build!
