Scapula: Up to 40 mm of spacers possible

Scapula is stronger than we thought: Rigorous testing has shown that contrary to what the former manual said it is perfectly safe to use 40 mm of spacers between headset and stem instead of just 10 mm. However, let us use this occasion to remind everyone that no stem should be mounted without carbon-specific assembly paste (e. g. from Tacx, Syntace, FSA, etc.). Also, in no case should you ride with a loose headset. Play in your headset might damage your steerer tube, possible leading it to break.

Test proves: Scapula stiffest fork

Europe’s largest cycling mag TOUR tested 41 frame-fork combos in their March 2007 issue. Both the winner Storck and runner-up Cervelo were equipped with carbon fiber forks from THM. Despite its extremely low weight the Scapula proved to be the stiffest 1 1/8” fork by far, both laterally as well as in fore-aft stiffness.


Clavicula shows convincing results

While several carbon fiber parts from Far East recently made the news with recalls, THM has decided to raise the weight limit for their Clavicula carbon fiber crankset from 85 kg to 95 kg
