New top-of-the-range model for Mercedes-Benz Bike Collection 2007: Ultra-lightweight carbon fibre racing bike from Mercedes-Benz
Posted June 7th, 2007 At 11:30 AM CST


At Mercedes-Benz it is not just the cars that benefit from the
company?s involvement in the field of motor racing ? motorsport
know-how is also used to optimise various top-class technological
Collection products. The latest example is the new ?Racing Bike 2007?:
thanks to an innovative frame made from carbon fibre ? a high-tech
material used in Formula 1 ? this competition-standard cycle weighs
just seven kilograms. With its consistently lightweight construction
and exclusive equipment, this is a cycle that will appeal to
professional cyclists and serious amateurs.

Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH developed the new high-end bike in
partnership with top German cycle manufacturer ADP Engineering GmbH, a
company renowned for its exclusive, handcrafted Rotwild brand of
cycles. In collaborating on the Mercedes-Benz Bike Collection 2007 the
partners? aim was to build cycles which would satisfy the every need of
discerning Mercedes-Benz customers.

Racing Bike 2007: the high-end bike made from carbon fibre

The heart of the impressive racer is its innovative carbon fibre frame,
manufactured using tube-to-tube processing. In this cutting-edge
manufacturing process the frame is assembled from individual carbon
fibre tubes, which are initially bonded together. The joints are then
wrapped with carbon fibre and, in a process similar to that used in
Formula 1, are cured in autoclaves (sealed pressurised containers)
where they are subjected to high pressure and high temperatures. The
frame created using this high-tech process is characterised by extreme
stiffness and a low weight. The full carbon fork, made from the same
high-tech material, comes courtesy of professional outfitter Topkey.
The ?Racing Bike 2007? weighs just seven kilograms (excluding the

Premium components from top Italian manufacturer Campagnolo

The exclusive equipment for the Mercedes-Benz bikes leaves nothing to
be desired ? even by the most demanding of professional cyclists. The
shift system, brakes, wheels and chain wheels are part of the CentaurTM
series from top Italian manufacturer Campagnolo.

The CentaurTM ErgopowerTM shift/brake levers combine perfect ergonomics
with contemporary design. These competition-standard components allow
particularly fast gear changes and braking because the rider?s hands
stay on the handlebars ? a design which not only offers time advantages
when racing but is a major safety bonus too.

The CentaurTM rear derailleur was specially developed for top-level
sport and allows fast, extremely precise gear changes across all ten
speeds. The outer section of the shift parallelogram is made from
carbon fibre ? ensuring the cycle?s consistently lightweight
construction, right down to the smallest detail. The ChorusTM crankset
follows the successful formula used in racing. The ultra-lightweight
chain rings feature an integral bearing and are directly laminated onto
the high-quality carbon cranks using a special process. This solution
also helps ensure an extremely stiff structure with an impressively low

The SciroccoTM black wheels come courtesy of top Italian manufacturer
Campagnolo. They have a 24-millimetre profile and feature radial
spoking at the front and G3 spoking at the rear. Aerodynamic aero
spokes (20 at the front, 27 at the rear) reduce air turbulence to a
minimum ? enhancing dynamic handling in the process. The oversize hubs
feature a sealed deep groove ball bearing ? another precision element
which will appeal to discerning racing professionals.

The Mercedes-Benz Carbon Bike is available in five versions with a
frame height of 49, 53, 56, 58 or 61 centimetres. The price of the
thoroughbred sports cycle is Euro 3,990 (German price, incl. VAT).

The Racing Bike spearheads the new Mercedes-Benz Bike Collection 2007,
which also includes new-design men?s and women?s versions of the
?Fitness Bikes? and ?Trekking Bikes?. The technology and functionality
of these two series are precisely tailored to the needs of keen amateur
cyclists. These cycles too were created in partnership with top German
cycle manufacturer ADP Engineering GmbH. The Collection also includes
an extensive range of cycle accessories plus Mercedes-Benz-branded
cycle wear.

The Bike Collection 2007 will be available from Mercedes-Benz sales partners from June.
