The PAVO IV marks an unprecedented fusion of lightweight construction and aerodynamics. Its state-of-the-art autoclave production in Europe allows carbon frames of the highest quality: extremely light and safe at the same time. All frame tubes have been aerodynamically optimised through flow simulations. The PAVO IV combines the best of both worlds and offers an enormously wide range of uses: uphill it’s light, on the flat it’s accelerated by low air resistance.
The fourth generation of the Pavo combines the genes of its predecessors with our experience from developing the aero rocket "Pride II" (currently the fastest UCI-compliant road racing bike in the world).
The beautifully integrated clamping of the seat post with Comfort Concept offers a high level of seating comfort with maximum aerodynamic performance.
Orderly protection for the cables and an aerodynamically optimized front surface: This is provided by the cable routing of the Smart Headset, in which all cables run inside the frame from the headset.
The small frontal area, which has been optimized for minimal air resistance using flow models, pushes the Pavo IV to maximum performance while maintaining a low weight.
The extraordinary rigidity of the bottom bracket and chainstay ensure optimal power transmission. So that your power transfers to the asphalt.
The perfect integration of fork and head tube scores points not only with its elegant design, but also with its particular stability and rigidity, thanks to our I-Cone technology.
Additional carbon layers reinforce critical areas (like the rear dropout here) and ensure maximum stability in a super light frame.
Versatile aero road bike for climbing the peaks
In its fourth model generation, our Pavo IV achieves an unprecedented fusion of lightweight and aerodynamics. It thus covers an extremely wide range of uses: uphill it spurs with its low frame weight, on the flat it is uncompromisingly fast thanks to the low air resistance of the aerodynamically optimized frame shape. It thus combines the genes of all Pavo models with our developers experience with the Pride II, currently the fastest UCI-compliant road bike on the market.
This previously unattained combination of light weight and aerodynamics was made possible by tube cross-sections optimized by computer simulation and state-of-the-art autoclave production in Portugal.
State-of-the-art production in Europe: The Pavo IV Frame
The PAVO IV sets standards in frame production. Its UCI-certified carbon frame is manufactured in Europe, it is aerodynamically optimized and a flyweight. This rare combination is possible because we make no compromises in development and manufacturing:
- The aerodynamically optimized frame shape was developed with the help of flow simulations.
- The highest-quality carbon fibres ensure stiffness and low weight.
- The full monocoque frame is manufactured as one single component (instead of being assembled from several parts). This saves weight and increases stability.
- The autoclave curing process under pressure results in an extremely compact fibre composite and therefore maximum safety.
- A combination of manual and state-of-the-art robotic finishing processes ensures the frame's ultimate perfection.
