THM-Carbones: The world's most advanced carbon fiber components. Made exclusively in Germany. Products

A first comparison puts the new Clavicula SE at the forefront among its competitors.

Indeed our Clavicula SE, now finally available, has passed the first stress test with flying colours. Setting new standards with a stiffness to weight ratio of 3.54, it obtains the best ranking in a top-class competition with a complete system weighing just 494.8 grams (crank plus bearings, chain rings and chain ring bolts).

This result shows that THM-Carbones adhere steadfast to their philosophy of offering products meeting the highest quality standards only. Clavicula sine exceptione – Clavicula without limitation

THM Carbones Clavicula classic and M³ awarded with the first and second place by Fairwheel Bikes!

We eagerly awaited the results of Fairwheel Bikes’ comprehensive and critical test program. Indeed, considering the systematic procedure and scientific analysis characterizing that test, statements are of vital importance for the bike crank manufacturers worldwide and also are a real quality label in the segment of high-end manufacturing.

We are all the more pleased about the present evaluation.

Here the comment of Fairwheel Bikes on the results of Clavicula classic: „The Clavicula is now in its 10th year of development and refinement, and it shows. 1st in weight, 2nd in stiffness and 1st in stiffness to weight.” and on the results of Clavicula M³ „The Clavicula M3 is a newer model than the Classic, designed to be a little heavier and a bit more modular in its design…. and 2nd in stiffness to weight puts this up with the best cranks.”

Clavicula classic and Clavicula M³ are products of the private label THM-Carbones.
THM-Carbones offers a limited special edition on occasion of the 10th anniversary of Clavicula classic–see also

New release by THM-Carbones: Clavicula sine exceptione

Clavicula sine exceptione – without limitation – is synonymous with a new kind of smoothness and outstanding utilization of load paths. A highly promising forerunner for the next technologically oriented development step to come. Clavicula SE is a full carbon crank with integrated carbon axle. In the development phase particular emphasis was placed on optimizing structural design. Interesting in more details? Get the specifications “Information sine exceptione English.pdf” or visit us on:

“Concept 1865“ from BASF

THM assisted BASF, plastic specialists for many years, in the project “Concept 1865“ as a partner in design consultation, executive planning and incorporation of FRC components into the “e-velocipede”. Indeed it was THM, in co-operation with the project leading company Designstudio DING3000, to manufacture the frame, the fork and the big wheel for the prototype bicycle. The project was presented on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of BASF at the K2013 fair in Düsseldorf. We are very glad to be able to participate in this project.

Fibula gets best reviews

Among other in the tour 11/2012: …,Brakes, crank sets and fork come all from the German carbon specialist THM whose competence in lightweight construction enjoys a global reputation. Quite rightly: Whilst brakes and cranks match the functional quality of large series parts, the fork is simply sensational. Never before there was a fork to receive highest marks for both comfort and lateral stiffness – and that with a weight of 283 grams only!"

Or in the big brake test in the tour 04/2012:

Tour April 2012: “The lightest brake kit saves more than 100 grams compared to the lightest large-scale production brake from SRAM Red. … THM, the German specialist in lightweight construction, uses laborious engineering procedures to turn carbon, aluminum and titanium to calipers with a weight of just 140 grams. … Everyone who likes this design can bolt this flyweight component without concern on his bike: The THM brake ensures perfect deceleration and allows finely metered braking. Ingenious are also the different leverage ratios for the front and rear side, with the front brake creating more braking power.”

Comfort fork for road racing

Comfort becomes a more and more important factor in road cycling. Indeed, why should you get out of the saddle totally stiff after two hours of cycling whilst actually you would like to continue to ride just a few more hours?

 Load caused by an aluminium or carbon fibre star fork is enormous as even the smallest road unevenness is directly transmitted to joints, vertebrae and muscles.

 Well aware of these problems we have developed for road racing bikes the world’s first sprung fork without further mechanical parts. This patented system consists of two-piece fork blades and unique lamella springs which enormously increase comfort and at the same time ensure consistent performance.

 A first study revealed very good damping values as compared to rigid forks. Your riding feel remains direct and precise in spite of the damping system. Among other things this is owing to a very high lateral stiffness generated by the especially conceived lamella springs. Such forks can weigh less than about 380 grams and are quite competitive compared to conventional rigid forks.
This fork is still in the test phase and will not be available in commerce for the time being.
