True to their tradition of producing beautiful and lightweight products, AX lightness has hit it out of the park yet again with the Vial Evo D frameset. With insight and forethought in regards to what light frames often lack, the Evo D was designed to be extraordinarily light without the shortcomings often seen in ultra low weight bikes. Through optimized tubing profiles and premium material selection AX Lightness has crafted this frameset with the ride characteristics desired from a traditionally produced frame without excess material. Through extensive load testing and analysis AX Lightness has sculpted every line with flowing contours and a graceful silhouette without sacrificing stiffness or durability. Utilizing only the finest carbon available (the same carbon used in their motorsport productions) to achieve unrivaled performance and superb weight savings rarely seen in production models the Evo D is a step above the competition. The craftsmanship can be seen in the specialized fibers layered in key locations for optimized stiffness, but the entire frame is a work of art. The incredibly sleek seat-tube is barely wider than the 27.2 seatpost and gracefully transformation from round to square as it merges with the bottom bracket is sublime. The asymmetry of the frame is subtle yet remarkable. Most notable are the chainstays with the left being larger in volume and the right being slightly higher to better compensate for drivetrain stresses. Though the silky finish is impeccable the most remarkable features are not visible from the outside. The frame features areas that have a double wall construction to add strength in specific high areas without affecting the entire construction. With internal guides to accommodate every choice of drivetrain be it electronic or mechanical the Evo D truly is the most versatile frame for cyclists looking to acquire the premier climbing rig or fashion themselves an ultralight everyday bike.
