The Cannondale Six System

Abstract:
The System Six utilizes unidirectional carbon fiber for the chassis, have you done any experimentation with other materials such as carbon nanotubes? Aluminum alloys are also used; how familiar are you with amorphous alloys, and has that direction been discussed? How is the Aluminum fused to the carbon sections?

Unidirectional carbon allows us infinite flexibility in achieving specific ride properties for frames also, by not using a decorative weave we can save weight while achieving a unique look. At this point nanotechnology is in the early stages, and it can't be applied to frame technology to cost effectively achieve strengths or properties that a medium to high modulus carbon has right now. We use 6000 series aluminum, heat treated to T6 and the carbon is co-molded in a press while being bladder molded to the Aluminum rear. The Carbon front triangle is not made ahead of time, it is laid up and by co-molding it to the Aluminum there are no glues to add weight or increase variability in our process.
