British bike manufacturer Orro has released its all new Terra C model road bike this month, featuring sigmaIF – a combination of Innegra Technologies and Sigmatex carbon fibers, to produce a completely redesigned frame.

The Terra C is one of several bikes in the Orro range that feature Sigmatex carbon technology. The Terra C has a lightweight frame, tire clearance and geometry aimed at the emerging adventure riding scene, while retaining the speed and handling of a road bike. Offering the same lightweight performance as more traditional carbon fiber reinforcements, sigmaIF offers improved impact resistance and damping properties – absorbing energy and reducing vibrations, which makes for a smoother ride.

    High strength at low weight remain the winning combination that propels composite materials into new arenas, but other properties are equally important. This article outlines the case for composites and introduces SourceBook's overview of the materials and processes used to make them.

  • The matrix

    The matrix binds the fiber reinforcement, gives the composite component its shape and determines its surface quality. A composite matrix may be a polymer, ceramic, metal or carbon. Here’s a guide to selection.

  • Fabrication methods

    There are numerous methods for fabricating composite components. Selection of a method for a particular part, therefore, will depend on the materials, the part design and end-use or application. Here's a guide to selection.
