The Helix OS takes our signature Helix tube set and adds current component design elements to create one of the most exciting road race frames for 2013. By adding a SRAM Pressfit 30 bottom bracket to this frame (which requires BB30 cranks), we have increased stiffness for maximum power transfer. We have also increased the headtube diameter for more responsive handling and to accept a Cane Creek 110 ZS 44mm headset. Our proven Pro Competition geometry can be found on this top level race frame allowing for an aggressive riding position. The combination of these features make the Helix OS the pinnacle of our road racing lineup.
At first glance you will notice the spiral shaped tube design that adds significant stiffness to the structural integrity of the tube without adding additional weight. The HELIX shaped tubeset provides the rider with the highest overall balance of performance characteristics with the least amount of compromise that you are forced to expect in many other frame designs.
Different forces occur when braking, accelerating, climbing and descending. It was our challenge to create a tubeset that best handles all of these various force vectors and create a harmonious balance between them with minimal compromise. More force can be applied to the frame without any loss in pedal efficiency or sacrifice in performance. Not to mention the unmatched durability that only titanium can offer. No longer do you have to sacrifice handling or performance strictly for weight savings.
