Why bamboo?

Bamboo is a group of perennial evergreen in the true grass family Poaceae, whose stems are majorly made of cellulose (58%) and ligni (30%).

Bamboo's characteristic

Minimizing risk and danger with special innate structure: With densely unidirectional fiber structure, bamboo owns an impressive capability to sustain pressure, bending and twist, enabling bamboo bicycles to reduce vibration in transit, especially in case of a pothole, thereby minimizes the danger and risk for riders, particularly for young children.

LIGHT: In wood the strongest fibers are packed in the centre of the trunk, however in bamboo the stems are full of cavities and the strongest fibers are distributed most densely in the outer surface region. 

STIFF: As a consequence the most stable fibers structures in bamboo are most dense in regions of greatest longitudinal stress. Wood bends relatively easily but bamboo does not.

STRONG: Extremely strong wood fibers can resist up to 5kN/cm2 and steel can resist at most 37kN/cm2 whereas the outer fibers of slim bamboo tubes have tensile strengths of up to 40kN/cm2 .

‘BEAUTY ART’ SHAPE: bamboo is in tube, which is ideally suits the frame design in terms of aesthetics and art, contributing to beautify the colourful life.

ECO- FRIENDLY: Bamboo is a recyclable, sustainable and eco-friendly natural resource if we have proactive plans to exploit and reserve it. Bamboo is also able to filter the air, thereby contributes to sustain a GREEN – CLEAN – BEAUTIFUL natural environment.
