Titanium Bike Printed in 3D is Fully Customizable

A bike printed in 3D promises to be the dream of cycling lovers. The call DFM01 was created by Japanese designers and innovates for using titanium, unusual material in 3D printing processes. The model is rich in detail and can be customized according to the taste of the consumer. The price for so much technology and sophistication, however, is high.

Created by Triple Bottom Line studio, the bike was built with a 3D printer using a technique known as selective laser sintering (SLS). This allowed, in addition to making precise cuts, to add detail in the bicycle chassis. The project was built in conjunction with Akiba, a brand specializing in racing bikes.

One advantage of DFM01 is its weight. Despite being built in titanium it weighs only 6.8 pounds. This puts it as a possible competitor with bikes built on other materials, such as carbon fiber.

In addition it can be fully customized. A system was created where the user provides information such as weight and height. According to the data collected, an algorithm accurately calculates the ideal size for the frame. The cyclist can also change the design according to personal tastes.

So many possibilities of personalization is logical that would reflect in the price. DFM01 still has no defined value, but it is believed that only the picture costs between US $ 4,200 (about R $ 12,700 in direct conversion) and US $ 5,900 (R $ 17,900).
