Curana Diversifies Product Line

Curana has been developing a complete new range of products. At the moment it consists of mudguards and chain fenders while other products will soon be added to complete the range. Currently the CLite products are among the lightest on the market and can be produced in a wide range of dimensions and designs with minor tooling costs.

The CLite products are made from a special sandwich material. The two thin aluminium layers separated by a layer of PP form a lightweight and stiff material. This is the same material that is used in Curana’s injection moulded mudguards DVide and BLite.

As for the fenders, every width, length or diameter can be produced. As the material is very rigid, the profile of the fenders can be less deep than usual. This gives the bicycle a very clean and hi-tech look. The weight is about 30% lower than existing plastic fenders, with a much higher stiffness.

The chain guards are produced without any specific tooling cost while most existing chain guards require a mould, and need to be produced in big quantities. The CLite technology makes it possible to design and to produce a chain guard of any size without a mould. (JWvS)
