Heroin Bike

Heroin Bike is a new bicycle designed and assembled by the French company Heroin, and built from composite carbon fiber which is hand made by Italian craftsman. Inspired by the Le Corbusier "modulor” concept of ideal proportions, and using perfection as their motto, the company built a unique bike where the specs speak for themselves: built from Torayca MJ46 carbon fiber, each frame is adjusted to the size of its future owner, then baked and glued together by proprietary and secret procedures that ensure a super strong frame and a weight of around just 750 grams! 3 years of aerodynamic studies resulted in top notch performance, the honeycomb texture (just like golf balls) helps reduce drag up to 10‰ and build up speed; the rims are also the only ones on the market that can withhold pressures up to 160 Psi and temperatures of up to 200º C. There are also some extra features that place this bike at the top of what’s being made, be sure to check them out.
