A SWIFT race sends Henri home with an Olympic Bronze Medal

To win an Olympic Medal of any colour, takes a massive amount of training, some luck and of course, the right tools. So when Henri Schoeman decided to win the bronze medal at the RIO games, he thought it best to go with an SA born and bred brand SWIFT

We look at the bike to see if there is an engine it in. Only kidding, the way Henri is riding these days, he looks like a machine. They always say its not the bike but the athlete. That is true but when all the athletes line-up to start and they are equally as talented and as fast, then it starts to become more about the bike.

SWIFT have a uber cool steed in the form of the HYPER-VOX. If its good enough for Henri, its definitely good enough for you

charles@swiftcarbon.com will show you where to find this beauty – you may not race as fast as Henri – but you will sure look as fast!

The SWIFT HYPERVOX

AERO
WITHOUT COMPROMISE

We resisted making an aero frame for years, not wanting to compromise our signature ride quality. Typically, aero frames sacrifice handling and compliance for a negligible advantage when considering the big picture. For instance, aero seatstays probably offer less of an aerodynamic advantage than a 10mm bar drop, or than a rider with thinner calves, or even just an elbow tuck. The human element has to be considered in the grand equation of bicycle frame performance and a tube that’s not optimally shaped for stiffness or compliance is seldom worth the compromise. However, the pro riders on Team Drapac persuaded us, so we made an aero frame, on our terms. Just as we approach all projects, it’s all about balance and common sense – no gimmicks.

“It’s everything you want from a racing thoroughbred and accelerates like a rocketship.”

Frame
Design

The frontal area of the head tube and down tube is minimised and smoothed off, while we’ve used a similar style of seat stay to the Ultravox, to retain compliance at the rear. The sculpted BB reduces the surface area of the down tube and makes for maximum power transfer. Carbon tech includes specially prepared Toray and Mitsubishi-Rayon materials, contributing to

the exemplary stiffness and strength, far exceeding ISO testing standards. The UCI approved Hypervox features a custom SwiftCarbon aero seatpost.
