Ralf Holleis carbon fibre VRZ2 track bike
With the help aerospace engineers at EADS, Somerset, UK-based Charge Bikes have refined and expanded their 3D-printed dropout production. However, German IDer Ralf Holleis does them one better with the VRZ 2 Track bicycle, developed under the VORWaeRTZ moniker.
Unlike the Charge dropouts, the lugs of the VRZ 2 Track are produced with a proprietary process called LaserCUSING.
