The scapula F combines a perfect aerodynamics for low air resistance and excellent braking performance through the use of a fully integrated V-Brake. The "F" stands for "frenum", lat. "Brake". The deep fork blades, the narrow construction and almost invisibly integrated into the fork blades lever give the Scapula F a particularly low drag coefficient (Cd value). The air resistance has the largest proportion of power demand in the plane and at high speeds.
The principle of the brake generally corresponds to the V-Brake (in the MTB sector known and tested!). This design has been developed for integration into a road bike fork. A return spring is no longer necessary.
The brakes are mounted on the inside of the fork and are constructed completely of carbon fiber. This results in an extreme rigidity of the lever and this leads to a perfect brake response.
Weighing only 364g, the Scapula F has a weight that not even reach most forks without brakes! In mountainous intended use the weight has the greatest influence on the power requirement.
The Scapula F has - like its sister Scapula SP - an extreme specific lateral stiffness. This rigidity and excellent braking characteristics greatly improve the safety and stability.
