A specific blend of high modulus carbon fibre was selected specifically to meet the performance targets set by the BH development team, resulting in a spectacular aerodynamic design that is lightweight and offers optimal vertical compliancy.
Aerodynamic Fork and Asymmetric Rear Pods
The Quartz fork, like that of the G6, is manufactured using a unique carbon design which fits the headset like a glove. The result is a smooth transition between frame and fork in both looks and performance. The rear chainstay design is asymmetrical, as in the other BH top of the line frames, in order to increase the lateral stiffness of the frame and to allow installation of wider wheel designs.
The Quartz seat post is only 27.2 mm in diameter, similar to that used on the Ultralight model. This design offers additional weight savings to the overall frame while adding greater vertical compliancy.
