Redline researched and considered many different materials for Project 79. After much deliberation it was decided that carbon fiber would be the ultimate choice for this frame. Carbon Fiber gave engineers and designers the ultimate flexibility in design and a great strength to weight ratio. Redlines Carbon fiber manufacturing process also allows us to add or subtract the amount or type of fibers in certain areas of the frame. This allowed Redline to fine tune the weight, stiffness and the ride quality of this frame. With test data from labs and real life feedback from the top riders in the world Redline was able to dial in the perfect combination.
FLIGHT CARBON FRAME/HUB SYSTEM
The Redline Flight Carbon frame is 100% designed and engineered by Redline. Every aspect of this frame was re-thought with the goal of getting to the finish line first. An oversized Bottom bracket in conjunction with a new 15mm thru-axle rear hub gives you the ultimate snap out of the gate and ensures that all the energy you deliver to the crank is transferred to the rear wheel. The large 54mm headtube reduces lateral flex for precise and stable steering, while the integrated chain adjusters have built in sight windows to make wheel alignment easier. Stiffeners were added to the seat stay area and brake mounts are pierced for reliable braking performance.
