More than 2,800 backers from 66 countries have supported the project so far, and due to demand has decided to extend the campaign until 12th September 2020.
The Superstrata 3D printed, fully-customised bikes have attracted the attention of some major brands wanting to work in partnership with Superstrata, like SmartTech, which is currently showcasing the exclusive Superstrata Oxford in Selfridges' new The Bike Shop on Oxford Street in London.
The exclusive Superstrata Oxford Edition includes carbon fibre wheels with a highly premium groupset, which are two of the most requested features so far.
Even Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, has already been along to Oxford Street to see the Superstrata Oxford in Selfridges for himself
The Superstrata's design has no glue, joints or bolts, is stronger than Kevlar and lighter than 2 bottles of water. Superstrata's proprietary composite 3D printing manufacturing technology makes each frame individually according to each rider’s precise body measurements.
The bike and e-bike will literally be made to measure. Buyers send in their measurements and their individual bike will be 3D printed - bespoke down to the spokes.
With more than 500,000 unique combinations, including mix and match colours, wheels, handlebars and more, the Superstrata bike and e-bike are made exclusively with carbon fibre reinforced thermoplastic technology, and 100% recyclable materials that won't rust.
Arevo, the company behind Superstrata, automates the design and fabrication of large, geometrically complex, continuous CFRP composite products through a suite of innovations in materials science, robotics and design software.
It recently introduced its newest system, the Aqua 2, the world’s first high speed additive manufacturing system for large continuous carbon fibre composite structures, which in addition to enabling higher quality print, is able to print 4x faster than its predecessor.
This enables the rapid, on-demand production of large (up to one cubic meter) custom composite parts, making the process to scale manufacturing even easier.
