Somec Made to measure HYC Aramid honeycomb carbon weave Revolution frame, fork, headset
Since 1973, Somec has built every bike by hand from their original shop in Lugo, Italy. No one but Somec has access to the HYC honeycomb Aramid tubing used in America Cup sailboats. This tubing performs as no other--producing a high torsional rigidity but less fatigue on muscles due to the Kevlar-like fibers that run longitudinally down the tubing (see cutaway foto). The Revolution is the pinnacle of frame-making and Somec's marquee frameset. Used by the Pro Gran Fondo team Gobbi who has, in 2014, won every Italian gran fondo entered.
Oversized seat tube and double chain stays provide asymmetric power distribution to the drive side, and double, slightly flexible seat stays provide a highly controllable bike even on rough surfaces.
Accepts 31.6 seatpost; lightweight carbon press-fit BB; dedicated 1/18 to 1/1/2 " headset keeps out any infiltration. 950 gm frame weight,330 gm fork.
