TRACK BIKE CONCEPT FROM NUNO TEIXEIRA
PLUMA means feather in Portuguese .
PLUMA, is part of recent concepts regarding high performance track bicycles.
PLUMA TRACK BIKE is made of carbon/Kevlar body panels, this way the surfaces are lighter,and more impact resistant. The overall shape will help the air flow along the bike body, and increases the athletes security by reducing the number of moving parts and tubes were they can be seriously injured - unfortunately, serious falls are usual during a velodrome track cycling race.
PLUMA is a fixed-gear bike, and like all professional track bikes, don´t have brakes.
