CNET Picks Up Delta 7 Bike

Published November 25, 2007

PAYSON, UT (BRAIN)—CNET staff writer Michael Kanellos picked up on the technology behind the Delta 7 Arentix mountain bike in his latest online report.

Delta 7 Sports launched its Arantix IsoTruss mountain bike to the cycling press at Interbike in September and to non-cycling journalists in New York this month.

The bike features the patented IsoTruss carbon fiber and Kevlar spider web-like open lattice tube design. The design allowed Delta 7 to shave off weight and create a hardtail frame that weighs 2.7 pounds.

Kanellos writes that Delta 7, which licensed the IsoTruss technology for multiple applications, “went with bikes because, well, there are always guys out there who will pay money to get something cutting-edge.”

The custom, hand-built Arentix mountain bike, which takes approximately 300 hours to build, retails starting at $11,995.
