Often times, carbon gets all of the attention, but as our Senior Advanced R&D Engineer, Chuck Teixeira, says, If you haven’t ridden an aluminum bike lately, you haven’t ridden an aluminum bike. And with its D’Aluisio Smartweld frame, the Chisel Expert with one-by gearing is no exception. Traditional welding methods create frame joints by connecting tubes to cylinders, leaving the performance and security of the connection up to the skill of the welder. D’Aluisio (DSW), however, allows us to move the joint away from the area of the highest stress, making for a lighter frameset that’s stiff, compliant, and incredibly strong—the optimal characteristics of a hardtail XC rig. So what does this mean for you?
