Handcrafted in the Czech Republic

Duratec, Ltd. is a Czech company based on their own development and production of handmade bicycle frames made of aluminium alloys and composite materials. A very individual approach to the customer is the basic philosophy of this company. Our goal is to make the perfect bicycle in cooperation with the customer. It is easier to imagine having a suit tailored than having a bicycle frame tailor-made or having a custom-made bicycle built. However, the right size, right frame geometry and optimised seating position will affect not only your performance, but also your health and riding delight.
Duratec Development Center is a very important part of custom-made frames and bicycles. It controls the field of frames development, manufacturing technologies development and last but not least composites processing. Looking globally at the Duratec Company, we can state that a small garage-based company founded in 1997 became a stable frame-producing company that competes with the leasing manufacturers of bicycles on the international market. The company supplies the domestic market and about 60% of its production is exported to EU countries and beyond.
Innovation is the essential element for achieving original and characteristic design of our products. DURATEC regards itself an innovative firm from the beginning of its existence. It has always tried to provide absolutely different perception of riding than that of series production bikes.Of course, it means no materials and tubing offered by sometimes even renowned manufacturers, but research and development of own frame sets. The fact that designers chose the right direction was shown in practical tests carried out by racers who confirmed high frame stiffness. It was evident mostly during uphill riding and sharp acceleration. Well, it is the hills and fast starts that decide race results. The development of frame sets is still in progress but from the first tube drawing, designers and engineers have made out a number of solutions improving a technical quality of our products.Duratec is focused on development from composite materials, that are the most important material in production. The range of products is very inovative thanks method AFCF (accurately fitted continuous fiber) that is completely developed by Duratec. AFCF is so evolutional that Duratec is proud of own designers who are able to think something technical impresive as model Cult CR3 … see complete offer.
