The new HB.T track bike has been created with aerodynamism in mind, integrating both the bike and rider into the design. The radical frame structure is thought to make the bike 2-3% more aerodynamically efficient, which in a race conditions could be the difference between silver and gold.
Sam graduated in Sports Technology in 2018 and has worked in the manufacturing engineering and mould tooling of the bike.
While Hope Technology has focused on the frame and wheels of the bike, the company has collaborated with companies Lotus and Renishaw, who have made the forks, cockpit, and the 3D titanium components.
The bike is now available to buy through various retailers, with prices starting at around £15,000.
