ADT Frame Technology

The following features are incorporated on ADT (Avanti Design Technology) developed bikes. All technology assimilated into our bikes is a result of the extensive ADT process in a bid to bring you a faster, stiffer, stronger and better performing bike.

Advanced Carbon Construction

Advanced Carbon Constructionhighlighted 2 +

Our highest grade of carbon combined with modular monocoque construction methods offers high stiffness for maximum drive efficiency.

Adjustable horizontal dropouts

Optimise wheelbase and chain tension for your preference.


FEA.jpg +

Using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) during the design phase produces a highly optimised carbon-fibre lay-up sequence ensuring the bike is stiff, light and ready for competition

UCI Homologated Frame

UCI approved frame +

The frame carries the mark of the UCI meaning it has been thoroughly checked to ensure it meets the stringent equipment rules and is homologated and approved for use in all UCI sanctioned events.

CFD developed aerodynamics

Computational Fluid dynamics (CFD) are used to increase aerodynamic efficiencies making the bike faster. Computers are used to solve physics problems using numerical methods and algorithms.

CFD developed tube shapes

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is used to develop optimum tube profiles so you can ride faster with less drag.

Universal component capability

Further enhances the usability and versatility of the frame by allowing both mechanical and electronic cabling through the same ports.

Integrated head spacers

Improved aerodynamics and clean integration.


ILOlogo +

Internal Laminate Optimisation (ILO) ensures the mechanical properties of the frame are consistent across production and all unnecessary weight is removed.

Full carbon BB shell

Provides a much stiffer and lighter BB unit when compared to a bonded in alloy BB.

Integrated hanger

The rear hanger acts as a shifter cable stop, Di2 cable entry hole and also the rear derailleur hanger saving weight and reducing complexity.

Horizontal dropouts

Allows fine tuning of chain tension and wheelbase for maximum drive efficency and wheelbase adjustment.

7005 Ultra Lite Butted Aluminium

A more responsive, lighter and stiffer frame is better for all of us.

Optimised BB shell

Provides a stiffer and lighter BB unit

CR5 Modular Monocoque C40 carbon

CR5 Modular Monocoque C40 carbon +

ADT Level 5 carbon with C40 unidirectional finish.

CR4 Modular Monocoque C40/C30 carbon

CR4 Modular Monocoque C40C30 carbon +

ADT Level 4 carbon with C40/C30 unidirectional finish.

Internal cable system

Guiding the cables through the frame not only looks neat but aids aerodynamics by keeping them out of the wind.


MODS.jpg +

Maximum Output Differential Stays (MODS) add strength and stiffness where required without adding extra weight. The drive-side chain stay is larger than its counterpart on the left at the widest point to deal with the extra stresses.

Asymmetric chain stays

Reduced weight and optimised stiffness is achieved by reducing weight where it isn't needed and ensures a lightweight and responsive ride.

Tapered head tube

Taperedheadtube +

Precise steering means the bike goes where you want it to, when you want it to. The tapered head tube uses a larger bearing at the fork crown.

Custom hydro-formed tubes

A more responsive ride means more time enjoying your ride.

Quality hardware

Spend more time with your bike on the trails than in the workshop. 7075 alloy hardware on all pivots and high spec models benefit from Enduro Max bearings.

Oversize Down Tube

Providing a stiff and responsive ride down the trail.

Direct Mount Brake

Reduced weight and better braking means you can have full faith in your brakes when you need them most.

Road VRS seat stays

The carbon Vibration Reduction Stays (VRS) are shaped and optimised to provide integrated vibration absorption without sacrificing efficiency.

Post mount brake

Solid interface provides positive brake performance. Features replaceable thread inserts.

Syntace X12

Syntace X12.jpg +

The combination of 142mm hub spacing and the Syntace X12 system keeps the rear triangle stiff and true so your bike track well into and out of the roughest corners

High direct mount derailleur

No compromise in suspension performance equates to an optimised ride.

Custom hydro-formed and air-formed tubes

Custom hydro-formed and air-formed tubes.jpg +

Complex profiles can be formed so there is no compromise in frame strength and stiffness, all without excess weight. Less flex means a more responsive ride and increased performance.

Custom formed tubes

A more responsive, lighter and stiffer frame is better for all of us.


bb86 2 +

The oversize bottom bracket shell offers additional torsional stiffness to the frame due to the large contact area between the down tube and the bottom bracket shell. Over bottom bracket assembly weight is also reduced.
