The Nighthawk X9

Slovakian mechanical engineer Braňo Mereš has been created one-off bicycle frames for years. Some of his construction materials have included a woven bamboo epoxy composite, and carbon fibre rods, however with his latest creation, the X-9 Nighthawk he has taken yet another approach.

The X-9 Nighthawk is an experimental frame made out of sandwich panels with aramid honeycomb as a core, covered with carbon fibre skins. The frame structure was created from honeycomb sandwich panels which were water-jet cut, connected and laminated over by carbon fibre.
