American made Volae carbon frames, hand crafted by Calfee Design, are as light as the very lightest aluminum, titanium and hybrid-carbon frames. They set a new standard for comfort, durability, beauty, lateral stiffness and power transmission. This is a lighter, stronger, stiffer and more absorbent frame that is faster and more fun to ride. These frames feature hand wrapped and shaped carbon over an aluminum head tube and aluminum bottom bracket for a beautiful, and laterally stiff, front end. The rear fork is a one piece carbon fork with titanium dropouts made exclusively for Volae.
In addition to the high quality, American made frame, you get all the advantages of the Volae design, like the super comfortable and efficient Volae Comfort Carbon seat, extremely efficient seat stays, and the low friction Volae chain management system. All this gives you a very efficient ride with no sacrifices in the comfort department. The whole Team Carbon package rounds out nicely with a hand-built, made in the USA wheelset from Velocity like the A23 Pro with Sapim CX-Ray bladed spokes, an Aprebic Carbon fork, a SRAM X.0 ten speed component package and an FSA SLK Lite Carbon Crankset. The standard finish is Nude Carbon but, for a price, you can choose from a large assortment of premier custom paint jobs that will make your recumbent bike the center of attention. We recommend to our customers to apply 303 Protectant to a nude frame to protect it from UV rays. This can be found at most automotive part stores. A coat is applied at Calfee before shipping, and one can reapply a couple of times a year, or whenever the recumbent bike is cleaned.
