Automobile Carbon Component Manufacturer UBC GmbH Introduces the Coren Urban Bike [5]

The Coren is sleek in looks and performance, weighing in at a mere 17 pounds. The UBC desginer, Christian Zanzotti [6] expresses this lightness through super-slim top and down tubes. The bicycle [7] is also unique because every part of its manufacture takes place on the UBC premises in a clean-room setting in accordance with motor sport and premium construction standards. Not every component of Coren is made by UBC however. The company has collaborated with German manufacturers such as Tune, Schmolke, BOR, and Trickstuff and American companies like ENVE and Gates to produce this exceptional bicycle.

With it’s remarkable materials [8] and quality of craft along with attention to detail such as the CNC-milled fork ends with integrated belt tensioners, rear light optionally integrated into the seat tube and cowhide-covered saddle and handle bars, it’s no wonder that the Coren recently won the ISPO Brand New Award for 2012.
