If you are a serious cyclist you know that your bike needs to be a precise match to your body for optimum performance. With that in mind the German bike maker Vorwaertz came up with the idea to use 3D design to prepare a 3D model of the key parts to the correct specs and then 3D print them in metal.
The joints that hold together frame tubes of carbon fiber or stainless steel together are custom designed and 3D printed. This makes the bike super light and a unique match to its owner. If you desire the bike to be even lighter, there is a possibility to print the parts in titanium.
The VRZ 1 frame weighs 1100g (superlight for a stainless-Carbon frame) and the fork weighs 480g. Check out this video that shows how this all came together.
