The frame of a bicycle is usually shaped like a triangle, but a bicycle with a novel frame that has made that part annular is "The RoundTail".

Although it is a mysterious design that uses four circles in combination with the tire part, it seems that the effect obtained by doing not only aiming at the strange appearance but also by making it into the shape of this frame is correct.

Introducing RoundTail (TM), a revolutionary custom made bicycle frame that dramatically increasing comfort.

Lou Tortola, who is a bicycle lover for 20 years and also has a face as a novelist and entrepreneur, devised this new bicycle frame design. Regarding the frame design, it has already been registered with the World Intellectual Property Organization and design registration in the US and Canada has also been completed. Protection of patents in other countries is on hold.

This is "The RoundTail bicycle". If it is normal, there are many lines of lines that draw straight lines or loose curves, but this bicycle frame draws a circle.

It is shaped to sandwich the rear wheel between two rings.

The characteristic frame has not only its designability but also the meaning of functional aspects, and it is said that vibration and shaking transmitted to the riding person are more easily absorbed than the conventional frame.

Tortola's friends and acquaintances are mainly in their 50s and trying to make a bicycle that is hard to transmit a shock to people on board because there are many patterns that are declined as impossible because it places a heavy burden on the body even if they invite them to cycling I thought that development was the cause.

Especially the effect that you can realize is that it is a person riding a bicycle when you need a long distance ride, such as a sportsman who challenges competition like triathlon or a bicycle commuter. That means that I am currently traveling around the world by bicycleCharidermanIt may be said that it is a very attractive car body.

We have already completed the durability test at Microbac Laboratories in Colorado, has 10 times more durability against pressure in the direction perpendicular to the conventional frame, the impact absorption rate is said to be 60 times That's right. Also, Tortola, a developer, also speculates that air resistance is less than a conventional straight line frame.
