Disc Brake Carbon Road Bike Frames
Disc brake on a road bike is officially accepted by UCI since last year, and no doubt you can see 100% of these pro cycling teams are using disc brake road bike on some stages.
The different between rim brake and disc brake is, disc brake could offer you more efficient control of the bike in the rainy day, slippery road and downhill. The groupset maybe a little heavier than rim brake groupset, but in bad weather, safety is more important than speed.
Single Speed Carbon Road Bike Frames
Single speed (fixie, fixed bike), whatever the name is, the only goad of single speed bike is to chase the freedom in city route. With that been said, they are trying to avoid brake as much as possible.

Based on these demands, we combined our aerodynamic technology with single speed bike frame, here you can enjoy both in just one frame.
Super Light Carbon Road Bike Frames
You may ask ” carbon fiber is already light, where does this super light” come from?”
The reason is that even for carbon fiber frame, we want to explore the limit and make it as light as possible without losing the stiffness.
Our super light road bike frame is specially designed for uphill cyclists. If you like a road bike but you ride uphill most of the time, then a Rinasclta super light frame could help your life easier.
Triathlon Carbon Bike Frames
The ultimate type of aerodynamic is the triathlon bike. Aero helmets, aero wheelset, aero bottle, everything is aero!
And triathlon is more and more popular, so we here off our entry level( price) Toray T800+ T1000 carbon triathlon aerodynamic frameset. Easy to assemble with aero bars, you can race at a higher level instantly.
Carbon fiber bicycle frame building supplies
Carbon fiber bike frames can be built by your own with necessary supplies. From the perspective of a carbon fiber bike manufacturer, we don’t suggest to build the frame by your own for safety purpose, but below is the checklist for the building supplies
1) A proper mould. You need to wrap the mould with different types of carbon fiber cloth
2) Someone who can help you to lift the mould, considering the mould is quite heavy (a few hundreds kg)
3) A special oven where you can shape and heat up the mould with carbon cloth wrapped inside.
4) A polish machine which you can use to polish the frame surface
5) A paining lab where you can paint the frame, clear coat, colors, no matter what you need to paint on the raw frame
6) Proper test devices to test the frame, includes stiffness, impact test, falling test, fatigue test from different angles, and so on
Are carbon bike frames worth it?
It depends on your purpose. If you ride bike casually like a city bike, you don’t really need a carbon bike frame, even it will be much lighter and easier to ride.
If you ride regurelly on road bike or mountain bike, and you want to push the bike and yourself to a certain limit, under your budget you should go for carbon bike frame. With a budget of USD1000 you can get pretty a decent quality frame with warranty. And remember to buy from certificated dealers or from manufacturer directly, which will save you a lot of money and troubles.
Are carbon fiber bike frames durable?
Carbon fiber bike frames are durable if you choose the right one. Accordingly to Cyclingtips’ research, the lifespan of a carbon frame could last you forever if done properly.
Also based on Outsideonline’s post, they mentioned carbon fiber material can fail if the frame is built poorly.

But if we focus more on budget, aluminium bike frame is better with a tight budget. It’s easier to maintain and cheaper, but not for serious cyclists.
Do carbon frame break easily?
All frames can break. If a carbon bike frame cranks with fatigue(vertical, horizontal, front or back), it will show small crack on the surface, then slowly it will be break. In our lab, we do 20,000 fatigue tests from each angles to make sure all frames we sell wouldn’t break unless crashed.
How much difference does a carbon bike make?

As a carbon bike manufacturer, the reason why we can sell in a lower price is that we sell directly to you, no middle man, no brand marketing cost.
How much faster is a carbon road bike?
For amateurs who just switched from Alu to carbon bike, with the same power you will ride at least 2-5 km/h faster. And accordingly to Cycling Weekly’s test, a cyclist who generate 200W of pedalling power on an aero carbon bike was 1.7kph faster than on a lightweight carbon bike, which also shows that even with carbon bike, the weight and aerodynamic design also plays a big difference.
Are carbon fiber wheels worth it?
Carbon fiber wheels are actually making a bigger difference than a carbon fiber frame. If you want to ride faster, the first thing is to upgrade to carbon wheels than carbon frame. The significant weight, aerodynamic and stiffness make a huge difference on your bike.
How are carbon fiber bikes made?
Carbon fiber bikes are made 100% by hand. In general we wrap the carbon cloth in the mould, heat in bike mould oven, polish it, test it, paint it and then assemble the bike. All process are necessary to build the carbon bike.
