Press Release from Trek —
Here at Trek, we know that innovation requires asking the hard questions. In over 40 years of experience building the world’s best bicycles, we’ve learned that the most ground-breaking discoveries are found at the intersection of fantasy and reality; the crossroads of science and magic.
Today, we reveal a highly-secretive, multi-year research project to up the rad factor with new standards in speed, compliance, responsiveness, and aerodynamics. With rider needs as our primary focus, Trek’s Advanced Concept Group brings you Nomadé—an anagramic addition to Trek’s road line, designed to meet the diverse needs of elite athletes, weekend warriors, town-line racers, and garage hangers everywhere.
Under the hood
Don’t let the classic styling fool you. Under the hood, Nomadé features dynamic resonance technology, which reduces extracellular vibration and aerodynamic transmissibility through the frame by over 80%. Eight. Zero.
So, how exactly does Nomadé deliver such striking numbers? It’s all about the extensive, expensive development process behind it.
Trek engineers began by optimizing the Nyquist stability of the main triangle’s cross-sectional dispersion, for an empirically-determined, but computationally-replicated, inertial-feedback response. And while any good bicycle designer might apply this basic technique, the wizards in our test lab went the extra step of accounting for regressive interstitial variance, such as to drastically increase the dual clutch drivetrain’s Coulomb damping, while simultaneously reducing persperative dampening at the gluteal interface. How’s that for no pain and marginal gains?
Flip-whip dynamic compatibility
But Nomadé isn’t only about vibration performance. Automated iteration of CFD aerodynamics simulations accompanied Nomadé’s laminate orientation modeling to facilitate optimal balance between CdA force-grams and flip-whip compatibility.
The casual observer might point out that this type of automated multimodal design optimization may effectively nullify the plasticity material model. However, never ones to lose sight of the details, we were careful to account for any polymorphic boundaries, to overcome the fluctuating TTX yaw angles.
Of course, these theories aren’t simply taken at face value from Wiki-web sources. They were fully validated by laboratory and on-road measurement. Each and every Nomadé prototype test analyzed seemingly-disparate data streams from triaxial piezoelectric accelerometers, and high frequency CDMA GPS units were fully vectorized and parallel processed through your standard I.S.O. 53 49 -1 spectral weighting functions in order to quantify athlete comfort.
As with any good test method, this objective empirical analysis was always validated with simultaneous double-blind jury testing to ensure that any statistically-significant correlations were similarly observed in the subjective realm.
The rad factor
In the end, these breakthroughs are only made possible by Trek’s proprietary manufacturing process, which utilizes quasi-isotropic carbon fiber stacking sequences for a more refined deformation of the pre-preg material to the tritium-plated mold.
Trek Manufacturing Engineers ensured that every nanoparticle of thermoset compound was considered in the combination of optimum compaction and low voids in our net-molded step joints.
The result is Nomadé – a game-changing addition to Trek’s road line that’s poised to improve the lactic threshold and VO2 max of riders everywhere without any negative effects of modular turbo encabulation or y-foil strain. Rad factor: 10/10.
