TECHNOLOGY

 

We have introduced the following technologies in the Romet 2020 collection:

Electric assist

We have used 2 versions of Shimano engines, and have developed special frame designs to use their potential as a drive for the City, Trekking, and MTB models. The STEPS systems are tailored to specific solutions and applications of varying load levels. The system features robust software, three assist modes triggered by buttons or a lever, and an LCD display with an easy-to-use interface. An additional advantage is the WALK ASSIST system, which comes in useful when walking a loaded bicycle. SHIMANO STEPS has an efficient charging system, reaching 80% of the battery capacity after two hours of being connected, allowing you to recharge your e-bike when taking a break.

Carbon

We consistently use the painstaking and costly pre-preg technology to provide the highest durability. The ability to laminate the frame piece by piece enables the accurate placement of the material in accordance with the shape of the frame and the load distribution. Such accurate fibre distribution ensures maximum strength while maintaining minimum weight.

The applied technologies guarantee the effectiveness of our frames, not only in competitions but also in everyday use.

Hydroforming Aluminium

The hot hydroforming of aluminium profiles using oil allows the shaping of the optimum cross-sectional structure and reduces the frame’s weight, making the design lighter, more efficient, and visually appealing.

Plus Technology

Plus is the standard for tyres with an increased volume. It increases the area of contact with the ground, improving traction and suspension. Thanks to this, we make a bike which is faster on turns and less sensitive to bumps.

Boost Technology

Together with Plus tyres on Romet bikes, we use the Boost standard, which provides an increase in the spacing of the hub axes and a shift to the external side of the chain line. This solution helps to fit tyres with an increased width, and also has a positive effect on the side rigidity of the whole bike, thus increasing control.

Rigid axles

Rigid axles of forks and rear-wheel hooks provide confidence when riding your bike, rigidity, and stable wheel mounting in the frame and shock absorbers. In Romet bicycles, they are applied in a growing number of models, including road bikes.

Flat Mount

Mounting the brake caliper directly to the frame without the use of adapters simplifies the construction and reduces the weight. This solution has been adopted in our bikes permanently and it is systematically being implemented in an increasing number of models.

The SRAM Eagle

We have broadened the use of the Eagle technology in the 2020 collection: 1x12 drive, also available in this year’s collection in the Monsun model.

  • HYDROFORMED ALUMINIUM
    High-pressure oil is used in the hydro-formation process to produce lightweight and strong aluminium tubes of exceptional shapes.

  • QR-RW
    A traditional wheel clamp operated by a convenient lever.

  • AL 6061 LITE
    Lightweight aluminium 6061 alloy in which a favourable mass-to-strength ratio has been obtained thanks to T6 heat treatment.

  • FLAT MOUNT DISC
    Mounting the brake caliper directly to the frame without the use of adapters simplifies the construction of the connection and reduces the weight.

  • AL 6061 X-LITE
    A modern aluminium alloy, which, thanks to 30% higher strength, allows the use of thin-walled tubes, which further reduces the weight of the frame.

  • CARBON WHEELS
    The introduction of carbon rims increases rigidity and weight performance parameters of wheels. The reduction of the rotated weight mass of the rim allows for easier acceleration and better control, by limiting the gyro effect.

  • PLUS +
    Standard tyres with increased volume and surface contact with the ground. Improves traction and suspension.

  • SWIFT LINK
    A suspension system with a variable pivot point, mounted on two active connectors. This system provides high suspension performance on uneven terrain and drive efficiency when going uphill.

  • BUTTED TUBING
    Butted tubing (the variable thickness of tube walls) means the weight of the frame can be reduced without decreasing its strength.

  • BOOST
    Hubs with increased spacing: 110 mm front, 148 mm rear, and the chain line shifted 3 mm outward. This makes it possible to mount a Plus tyre, improves lateral rigidity, and has a positive influence on riding the bike.
