topology optimization and simulation
Topology optimization describes the calculation of a material arrangement in the design space that can withstand a load as well as possible. This means: where the stress in the component is high, there is more material. This process was instrumental in the design of our lever. In this way, the stiffest and most resistant construction is generated from as little material as possible. Using FEM simulations, weak points are then analyzed, the component optimized and verified before milling. Of course, we test the result extensively on test benches and trails.
We test all our components to the highest standards ourselves and in cooperation with independent testing institutes. Our levers are certified according to DIN EN 14766, with tests going well beyond the norm. The feedback from our team riders is even more important to us. Ergonomics, durability, crash behavior: Everything is discussed in detail and is the basis for the next optimization steps. Only those who allow criticism and meticulously eliminate weak points can get the best possible result.
Some problems only occur when several factors or environmental influences interact in tough continuous use and cannot be foreseen even in our extensive tests. Therefore, we take feedback from our customers very seriously. Every rider rides different trails, has different ergonomic requirements and sets different priorities for their equipment. We try to cover as many of these aspects as possible with our products. For incentives, please use our contact form and tell us what we can do even better for you.
