Rügamer Zen Überlight - 600 Grams

Rügamer is still a new brand name, but company head Brent Ruegamer is no newcomer himself, having served with renowned carbon fibre frame builder Craig Calfee. Brent shows his new Zen Überlight road frame on the North American Hand Made Bicycle Show, claimed to weigh just 600g! The Zen Überlight is a nearly 100% carbon creation, using aluminum for only the down tube shifter bosses and the replaceable rear derailleur hanger. Integrated headset bearings drop directly into the head tube, and sealed cartridge bearings specifically sized for a THM-Carbone Clavicula crankset are pressed directly into the bottom bracket shell.

Brent Ruegamer says his 600g Zen Uberlight (yes, we said 600g) is made from recently declassified super-high modulus carbon fiber.
