Technology

Flatmount Disc Brakes

What is indispensible among pros is also available on this bike: Hydraulic disc brakes offering perfect modulation with minimal use of hand force also - or especially - in the wet due to their always constant braking power. This is beneficial in traffic just as it is on a fast and furious descent from a pass in the Dolomites. Or on a cyclocross race track where it's all about staying fast as long as possible. By using the Flatmount standard we can position the callipers closer to the frame and more elegantly than before. This saves weight without sacrificing performance and it looks so much better.

QR-12 Thru Axle f+r

QR-12 Thru Axle

It is especially important for disc brakes that ultra-lightweight road bikes are prepared to accommodate them in order to make the most of their advantages. So the forks and rear triangles of your disc road bikes are spec'd with extra-safe 12 mm thru-axles.

Sram 1x11-speed shifting

11 gears can be sufficient. This shifting system will prove this preferably off-road. Here its rider can experience the advantages of the single-chainring drivetrain: Intuitive operation free from any mis-shifts, a weight saving of 300 grams compared to 2x drivetrains and a large range of gears with the right one for any kind of situation.

Full Carbon Fork

The most intelligent way of lightweight design for STEVENS engineers is to use carbon forks with 100% carbon fibers that run all way though from dropout to steerer tube in one single piece. This results in an amazing riding experience on and off-road: Lightweight, knife-sharp steering precision effortless climbing and maximum lateral stiffness even when combined with disc brakes.

Smooth Welded

Additional step in welding. The first, rippled weld, typical for aluminium, is covered with a second smoother weld. This not only improves looks but also lowers the risk of notches in this spot, which makes the frames more durable.

Tapered Seat Tube

The seat tube tapers from top to bottom. At the top it fits a slim seatpost that offers some flex and therefore increases comfort especially when riding over rough ground. At the bottom the large diameter nicley flows into the bottom bracket shell and downtube to provide great stiffness and drivetrain efficiency.

Triple Butted, Double Butted

Meaning a frame tube has three or two different wall thicknesses along its length. Triple butted (TB) is the usual technology with STEVENS high-quality frames.
Tubes with different wall thicknesses are optimally adjusted to certain ways of manufacturing or to withstand specific loads. Where the highest loads occur or where tubes are welded, walls are the thickest. Butted tubes allow frame weight to be lower by several hundred grams.

Tapered Steerer / Tapered Headtube

Fork shaft (or steerer tube) and head tube are tapered, meaning their diameter increases from top to bottom resulting in a conical shape. The diameter needs to be bigger at the bottom since this is where higher stress is applied. Riders will benefit from a noticeable higher steering precision almost without weight penalty. Also tapered steerers feature a smoother force transfer (like forces caused by hard braking) to the downtube than forks with a continuous 1 1/8" diameter.
