UK composites company launches aero-road bike

KAMM Projects has launched the new Vekta aero-road bike through sister company REAP Bikes.

The REAP Vekta is a UK-made aero-road bike with next generation frame performance, designed for racers, triathletes and road riders who want more – more stiffness, speed, comfort, efficiency, precision and response.

The launch of the REAP Vekta marks a culmination of years of hard work by REAP founder and managing director, Martin Meir, who has a long career in advanced composite engineering and is also a former elite triathlete, still competing as an amateur

The creation of REAP came when Meir felt the cycling industry had some headroom for a range of precision-engineered, high performance bikes made with uncompromised materials and methods that the big brands deemed too expensive for mass production.

Kamm has undertaken a number of high-profile, highly technical projects, such as the Gibbs Humdinga amphibious vehicle, as well as for a range of high-end manufacturers, such as Bentley Motors. Projects for Bentley ranged from interior panels to having the honour of working on the Bentley State Limousine.

At the heart of Kamm’s achievements and the follow-on successes of REAP and subsequently the Vekta bike, is the application of engineering best practice combined with the highest quality engineering minds.

The management team’s strength is its ability to match technology to the customer’s needs – matching reality to what the process needs to be.

This flexibility in Meir’s approach brings opportunity and endless possibilities. The balance is to align customer’s production requirements, tooling, and development budgets, whilst hitting the cost aspirations for the component and/or product.
