Down tube dents are common with our competitor’s frames and they significantly weaken the front end of your bike. Our double-butted, 1.45″ diameter down-tube features our proven Wave shaping to fight denting against contact made from a rail, ledge, coping and whatever else happens to get thrown at it.
The tighter radius of the waves stiffens the tube making it harder to dent. While it’s not able to eliminate every dent, it will take far more abuse than a non-Wave down-tube. The Wave down-tube adds minimal weight compared to a traditional tube.
