Forme Thorpe Comp 2.0 Frameset Features:
Tapered head tube/steerer - Our Thorpe frames feature an 1-1/8” to 1-1/2” tapered head tube and steerer. This allows for more precise steering when descending as well as improved power transfer when jumping out of corners and launching powerful attacks.
BB86 - The BB86 oversized bottom bracket design used on the Thorpe ensures minimal flex at the connection point between the larger-sized chain stay, seat tube and down tube connection which allows a more direct conversion of power transfer.
Narrow Seat Stays – With the reinforcement of additional cohesive resins and chunky square chain stays we have created a frame with narrower box shaped seat stays which allows the Thorpe to save weight without sacrificing power transfer. The stays are combined with a wishbone design at the top of the seat stay to provide marginal aerodynamic and strength advantages but predominantly to offer a sleeker and improved appearance.
