The Silicon Valley start-up wants to revolutionize the bike industry with its 3D-printed bicycles. They figured out a way to simplify the carbon fiber manufacturing process.
The company is based in Santa Clara California. They also announced that former Google and Amazon executive Jim Miller was coming on board as chief executive is using the bike to demonstrate its design software and printing technology.
Arevo claims that their composite material allows them to get “an incredible strength-to-weight” ratio that is “five times the strength of titanium at about a third the weight.”
Arevo’s bike-building process requires almost no human labor, and it allows the company to build frames in the USA for around $300 — the same cost as a labor-intensive manufacturing plan in Asia.
