The combination of technical natural fibers and biogenic fillers enable new ways to cross borders in sustainable product design for the industrial series production. This new biogenic material - flax fiber reinforced plastic - unites different benefits of traditionally used frame materials. By means of these, a sustainable, urban short- and medium-range bike was developed, which will be marketed under the brand Linon Cycles. Therefore it will introduce the first flax fiber bike frame manufactured in industrial series production.
