Carbon Fiber

Every bike starts with an idea. It comes from cyclists’ needs and from our desire to create more efficient and innovative bikes. We Design, Test and Refine before concepts become reality.

NEILPRYDE began manufacturing high-performance carbon fiber products in the late 1980s – launching the innovative Matrix system carbon fiber masts and booms to the windsurfing world, at a time when the Tour de France was being won by greats like LeMond, Delgado and Roche on steel frames.

In the last 25 years, NEILPRYDE has been at the forefront of carbon technology and manufacturing processes, allowing us to develop lighter, more responsive, robust and durable record-breaking products for our athletes.

Our designers continue to collaborate with independent experts, like BMW DesignworksUSA, testing laboratories and engineers to foster new technologies and advance the performance of our bikes.


C6.9 is exclusively composed of the highest-modulus Toray© 46T and 60T, unidirectional carbon fiber possible in bike manufacturing. This blend is 18% stiffer than C6.7 for the same weight, and allows our engineers to ultimately develop significantly lighter frames without sacrificing stiffness.


Tubes, joints and transitions incorporate carbon fiber ribs and gussets in strategic locations for optimum power transfer and riding performance. Developed initially for the DIABLO, the Exoskeleton design has been further refined through finite element analysis and applied in specific locations on the BURAsl.


C6.7 carbon fiber is used when a high stiffness-to-weight ratio is required while maintaining adequate compliance for the most challenging of races. A blend of medium and high modulus Toray© T700 and 46T, uni-directional carbon fibers are laid-up to maximize strength and keep the overall weight low. C6.7 fiber offers superior strength and durability compared to the industry standard.


Optimized tube profiles developed using finite element analysis enable frame stiffness to be maximized in critical areas to ensure efficient power transfer.


A stiffer, lighter and more responsive bike can be built by reducing the number of joints in the construction of a frame, as extra bonds result in additional carbon required just to bond the numerous pieces together. We developed a unique molding process for the rear triangle that enables the chain stays, rear dropout and part of the seat stays to be molded in one piece, reducing weight and creating a stronger, more durable rear triangle.


The tube profiles are designed to achieve the optimum balance between both characteristics. Result: the ultimate racing and climbing bikes.


NEILPRYDE engineers use a PU mandrel, instead of a traditional, silicone one, for more precise control of wall thickness and to prevent “fiber wash” – the misalignment of fibers during the molding process. Used in forming of the intricate head tube and seat tube joints and bottom bracket shell which are critical for ensuring precise handling and power transfer.


Engineering a more compliant grade of carbon fiber into isolated regions of the frame, combined with adjusting the wall thickness and carbon lay-up in specific tubes, ensures road vibrations are efficiently managed, resulting in a smooth ride.
