단순함의 미학. 픽시 자전거를 대표하는 수식어는 여기 '아바크' 싸이클에도 적용된다. 여전히 유효한 단순함과 유려한 곡선, 그리고 이를 구현하는 나무의 숨결 속에 함께 적용된다.
named after the horse pulling the sun on its way across the sky in norse
mythology, the ‘arvak’ by keim is a quest to construct a responsive
cycle that echoes the themes of nature. to achieve a stiff and
lightweight monocoque frame, the french company vacuum laminated up to
50 layers of white ash with a high modulus resin between each. to
optimize the orientation of each layer to maximize strength, the team
had to develop their own method from scratch. three coats of marine
grade finish protect the wood layers from weather and dirt.
each frame is hand built to an exact customer specification and benefits
from high quality components, that weighs about 7.5 kilograms.
unfortunately the keim ‘arvak’ is in limited production, but go check
out their website, and if you ask nicely, maybe they’ll build you one.
