Cycling Australia reveal new track bike components to rival GB's Lotus-Hope bike

New components will be used at the Glasgow Track Cycling World Cup

In order to to stop 'the British Cycling team and Hope/Lotus getting all the glory', Bastion has produced new components for the Cycling Australia riders to use at this weekend's track cycling World Cup in Glasgow. The components are a stem, handlebar and crankset.

The components have been designed and produced to work with the Argon 18 Electron Pro track bikes. These are used by a number of teams but for Australia-based Bastion it's the home team that's the main focus.

'Bastion has worked very closely with Cycling Australia to develop a suite of components aimed at improving the performance of their athletes through the innovative use of technology,' the brand explained upon the announcement of the new bike parts.

The components have been undergoing race situation testing for several months, with the bar and stem already spotted at earlier track meets, but the titanium crank will make its debut in Glasgow.

This is 3D printed by Bastion's in-house using Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) combined with filament would carbon fibre tubes 'to achieve unparalleled customisation and performance.'
