Whistle Creek 57cm Carbon Race Frameset

Whistle believe that every cyclist deserves a bike that provides maximum performance, at a reasonable price. Their goal is to produce technologically advanced bicycles, attractively designed and equipped with carefully selected components. After recently becoming part of the Atala, a well established Italian bicycle brand, Whistle goes from strength to strength and continues to create bikes with amazing technical innovation, highest quality and the best performance. Whether its a full carbon race bike, alloy mountain bike or sports hybrid, Whistles passion for perfection on every ride is reflected on every ride.

The Whistle Creek frame features a 3D CAD designed carbon frame with a carbon aero profile fork. After the initial design the framesets undergo rapid prototyping to verify critical points. After this Whistle builds the dies for construction of the individual tubes. The tubes are then bound together with several layers of pre impregnated Kevlar sheaths depending on stress and torsion at different areas of the frame. Whistle can fine tune a frame characteristics by varying tube thickness with additional Kevlar layers. The rear dropouts are in composite material and are inserted in the chain stay with the same technique as the tube binding, thereby creating a homogeneous body with the entire structure.
