French bike brand Origine Bicycles looked to make more durable still lightweight frames and to achieve their goals they turned to TeXtreme. Utilising their knowledge and spread tow carbon fibre materials resulted in an optimised frame lay-up that already have shown a heavy reduction in frame breakages.

Rémi Lefèvre, co-founder of Origine Bicycles, said: "To get a level with higher performance, the use of TeXtreme carbon fibre allowed us to develop a radical version of the frame Origin Axxome increasing lateral stiffness through more compact drapes. This results with a steering is sharper and accurate for better control.”

The fork built with TeXtreme materials is almost 19% lighter than the standard one – 320g in comparison to 380g for previous version.

Lefèvre continued: “We have zero cases of broken or cracked frame. The interesting thing for us is that the frame is much more rigid but it's still comfortable. Our customers are very happy with their Axxome Rs frame reinforced by TeXtreme.”
