Carrera

carrera-logo
Carrera bicycles were born in 1988 as an extension of the great Italian professional road racing team Carrera. The sponsor of the professional squad was the Carrera blue jean company and thus the team clothing looked like denim. Many great champions raced for Carrera including the trifecta; Tour de France, Giro d-Italia, and World Championship won by Stephen Roche in 1987. The other great champions include Claudio Chiappucci, Marco Pantani, Michelle Bartoli, Ivan Basso and Paolo Bettini. Over 500 victories were achieved by the Carrera team.
The Carrera workshop called Podium began in 1988 under the technical direction of Luciano Bracchi. Bracchi became well-known for his designs and product developments. The Carrera-Podium shop was the first workshop to join aluminum to rear stays to carbon. They were the first shop to work with ceramical aluminum and were the first Italian firm to build carbon frames on
size. With this experience a Carrera bicycle is a technical achievement backed with many years of R & D. The synergy with the racing teams allowed Bracchi to test new designs under the rigors of professional racing and he had the advantage of having the team headquarters located in the same building as the bicycle factory.
Today, Carrera has embraced the highly advanced designs of carbon. Unlike most bike companies that simply mimic the designs of others, Carrera has unique and well-thought technology to optimize the advantages of carbon. The tube shapes provide the bicycle with the ultimate combination of lightness, rigidity, ease of handling, comfort and durability. And with today’s efficient manufacturing technique, a high performance Carrera bicycle is more affordable than ever. Essentially, Carrera has a bicycle for every road cyclist from the novice to the Gran Fondo rider to professional level. We hope you find a Carrera model to your liking. The colors and graphics are dynamic and the paint and finish work are the pinnacle of the bike industry.

AR 01
The AR 01 project is the newest development from the Carrera Podium workshop.  This model is created for the professional and expert rider seeking the ultimate in rigidity, lightness and aerodynamics.

The total integration of the frameset components are the key features.  The integration of the front triangle to the rear triangle form an extremely well balanced frame with well defined handling characteristics.  The Carrera AR 01 has the most precise handling and descending properties which have evolved into performance that was previously unobtained.  The height of the top tube blends seamlessly into the integrated stem and the fork also integtrates into the headtube and downtube.

Another key component of the design is the carbon material.  The high modulus carbon is soaked with a special resin that both provides extreme lateral rigidity and tremendous resistance to torsion flex.  The rear triangle design and minimalist side profile of the tubes allow the perfect amount of frame compliance for a smooth ride.  The Carrera AR 01 transfers all the rider’s energy into 100% power of every power stroke.  There is no flex or deflection and the aerodynamic design results in the most efficient road bicycle.

Another element of the AR 01 is the Carrera 3brakesystem which allows the cyclist to choose from 3 different brake designs; disc, direct mount or normal brake calipers.  The brake design along with complete internal cable routing for both electronic or mechanical shifting systems give the AR 01 some of the best aerodynamic properties of any high performance road bike.

Frame material is carbon pre-peg T-800s, HM50 T and Ms40 T and Ms60 T with 1k finish
Bottom bracket is Press fit 86×41
Integrated headset system is 1 1/8 x 1 1/2

SL 730

The Carrera SL 730 is the crown jewel of the Carrera racing series and the lightest Carrera frame.  Special graphite epoxy is used in the SL series frames to reduce weight, improve strength and reliability and also to improve rigidity and performance.  The SL 730 is vacuum bladder moulded to ensure an even saturation of the carbon pre-peg material.  This key material obtains a mono structure finish and has considerable advantage for weight and strength.  The special epoxy and moulding process evens out and stretches the carbon fibers inside the tubes making them more compact, uniform and lighter.   The Carrera SL 730 may be the ultimate weight to strength road racing frame on the market.  Our painted SL 730 test frame weighs an amazing 750 grams and we have built 730s complete bikes under 14 lbs!

The tube shapes are extremely well thought out by Carrera engineers.  The front triangle uses a round to square shape that is proven to increase rigidity when needed resulting in precise control even in the most demanding situations.  The chainstays provide extremely high resistance and they are asymetrical in order to transmit very high power output to the pedals.  The Dual Flat System seatstays are designed to give maximum comfort even on rough tarmac and under strong load.

Carrera SL 730 is built with T 800 HM-HS 60T with XN60 special graphite epoxy
Bottom bracket is Press fit 86×41
Headset is integrated 1 1/8 x 1 1/4
Cable Routing is internal for both electronic and mechanical systems

PHIBRA EVO

With the unique shape and futuristic design the Carrera Phibra Evo is the pinnacle of Carrera’s research and developement.  The solution is to create a stiff platform and deliver power to the pedal stroke but with sufficient compliance and comfort.  Carrera’s double arc design achieves these goals.  The Phibra Evo is super stiff while standing to climb or sprint but has enough vertical compliance to smooth out the ride especially over rough tarmac.  Double Arc is made up of 2 pieces; a lower arc with super stiff down tube and chainstays that maintain torsion rigidity and the top arc that passes around the vertical seat tube and flattens out to a thin profile resulting in superb comfort.  The material is top quality pre-peg carbon 40, 60 and 70 ton resistance and the seat tube and fork are aerodynamic shape.  The Phibra Evo is a very precise high performance bicycle that is light and responsive.
