HTech: handcrafted wooden bikes
Posted on 01 November 2016
HTech Bikes is based in Perth, Western Australia. Their wooden bikes are handcrafted using locally sourced hardwood timber.
Why wooden bikes?
Leveraging the strengths of both Carbon and Wood materials, HTech Bikes has handcrafted some of the finest wooden bikes. They use wood as a material of choice for frames as it’s naturally strong and highly durable. On the technical side, they’ve incorporated a great number of other technologies into the engineering of each and every part of these wooden bikes to enhance the on-road performance. Additionally, wood, with its great vibration absorbency, would ensure a great level of comfort for the riders.
On the visual side, wood has long been universally seen as to have a rugged and luxurious look about them. By default, things just look better made out of wood. If you like a wooden case for your iPhone, imagine a wooden bike for your daily rides. It may be slightly heavier than a carbon bike, but if you’re into something unique and tailor-made to your own personal fit and preferences, it can be as much a personal statement as a tattoo.
