Notes
------------------------------------------------------


1.  Certified quality
Frames labelled with a small testing seal are certified, i.e. the manufacturer has contractually guaranteed that the model in question will be delivered without any technical changes compared to the test sample.

2. For the current overview of test loads please contact us.

3. Calculating the comparison weight
The frame is weighed in its finished condition, i.e. complete with its surface coating and all usual add-on components, however, without front fork, head tube bearing and suspension unit if aplicable. If components are missing, the comparison weight is calculated by adding the following set values:

  • Seat post clamp: 30 g
  • Removable gear hanger: 15 g
  • Cover screws for complete bottle mount: 15 g
  • Cable guide or cover screws: 15 g
  • Cantilever bolts: 20g

In the following cases set values are deducted:

  • Bearing carriers for integrated head bearings:  20 g
  • integrated seat post incl. saddle wire clamp:  230 g

Comparison weights are only valid for the tested frame height.

These data are based on type tests that do not allow for statements on quality variation within series production. Dimensions and weights are estimated values. No responsibility is taken for the correctness of any information.
