Pacenti Cycle Design has a shared belief in moving forward. It is this driving force that produces products of such quality and technical excellence. If you could see what we can in the future, you might be as excited as we are to be part of a culture like cycle sport. It is easy to say you are innovative and to claim you're pushing the boundaries of design and performance. Pacenti proves the model with products like P-Dent. We look forward to sharing our next projects with you soon.
Defining revolution, Kirk applies this principle to all of his work and this shows on his design board. I am certain you will love some of the product he is working on now, and we are really excited to be bringing some of them to market.
World Class Craftsmanship
World Class Craftsmanship Pacenti Cycle design has rewritten the book on product testing and development. The latest members of the team have brought great experience and expertise to ensure Pacenti Cycle Design rises to the next level.Quality and finish is the key here, taking a great design from the screen to the road or trail. This imperfect science is dependent on others completing their portion with equal passion and attention to detail as went into the conception.
FROM C.A.D TO CREATION
It has always felt good to see something we have obsessed over take shape for the first time on the screen. The ability to manipulate and test the design at the C.A.D stage is an exciting first step. Then comes the first prototype, or 'tooling up," for a sample run. There is a buzz around the testing phase. Nothing beats that feeling of seeing the production line running!
650B CHANGING THE GAME
"Looking back it seams so obvious. Everything about mountain bike building and progression was pointing at 650b. Ten years ago, I felt like a maverick on the fringes of the sport. Now we take for granted 650b as a natural wheel size choice for so many bike designers. I was hooked on 650b from day one and I still ride a 650b bike today." ~ Kirk Pacenti.
IDENTIFYING A NEED
To see a need for your design is a key fundamental. We have always tried to satisfy the demands of our ever-changing industry, producing products that fill the needs of designers and riders alike
P-Dent is a classic example. The trend for the best trail bikes getting longer has meant that designers have been restricted to a 35mm stem length. It immediately struck us that P-Dent was the solution because 20mm was achievable and top tubes could grow again.
Wheel building the dark arts
Great wheel builders have long held a reputation as masters of the dark arts. We have delved into the minds of some of the best builders we could find, helping us to establish a set of rules on how we construct the best wheels we possibly can. It's one thing to make great parts.Taking these and making a great wheel is another matter altogether.
