自転車業界有数のサプライヤー、ミランダ(MIRANDA(R)、http://service.miranda.net/en )は本日、画期的な歯形を採用する同社開発のチェーンフロー(ChainFLOW(TM))技術を初めて使用した、革命的なクランクセット、インフィニウム(INFINIUM(TM))のローンチについて発表しました。



インフィニウムに使用されているチタン合金のチェーン・リングは、パフォーマンスをさらに向上させるために、専用に配合されたカーボン・ナノスケール・マトリックス・シールド(carbon nanoscale matrix shield)でコーティングされており、摩擦をほぼゼロに抑えて、チェーン・リングの耐性や寿命を大幅に延長します。様々なボトム・ブラケット構造に合わせて提供される予定のスピンドルもまたチタン合金製で、きわめて高い荷重に耐えられる設計となっています。

インフィニウム・クランクセットの堅さや信頼性をさらに補足するものとして、デルタ・クランク・アーム・モデル(Delta crank arm model)が開発されました。このアームは、同社独自のナノ構造化自動冷間鍛造技術によって製造されたアルミニウムを用いて開発されました。耐性で知られ、受賞歴もあるデルタは、170ミリまたは175ミリで提供されており、構造へダメージを及ぼすことなく、硬い岩石の衝撃を持ちこたえ、吸収することができます。その比類無い耐性や衝撃への強さが、DIN EN(欧州統一規格)の安全基準をはるかに上回る状況でも発揮されることは、定評のある外部の研究機関によっても確認されています。

MIRANDA Redefines the Standard in Durability and Performance With INFINIUM Bicycle Crankset


AGUEDA, Portugal, Nov. 27 /PRN=KYODO JBN/ —

    MIRANDA [http://service.miranda.net/en ](R), a premier supplier for the
bicycle industry, has announced today the launch of their revolutionary
INFINIUM(TM) crankset, introducing their ChainFLOW(TM) technology, with its
unconventional tooth profile, to the market.

    Protected under international patents, issued and pending, the ChainFLOW
technology is MIRANDA’s answer to the narrow-wide tooth profiles tendency.
Developed to outperform currently available systems, ChainFLOW helps to reduce
wear and operation noise, prevent chain drops, and improve overall efficiency
by reducing wasted energy to a minimum. With less friction between the chain
and the chainring,riding is smoother and more controlled, with maximum power
efficiency in all riding conditions. This is achieved by a proprietary and
non-standard tooth profile, where the chain engages sooner on the chainring,
directly on the roller moving parts and on more contact points, significantly
reducing wear and enhancing the chain load distribution. The precision-machined
teeth have very strict tolerances, so the chain operation is more definite and
progressive, even in excessively muddy riding conditions.

    To further improve the performance, the titanium alloy chainring on
INFINIUM is coated with a custom-formulated carbon nanoscale matrix shield,
reducing friction to near zero and hugely increasing the endurance and
longevity of the chainring. The spindle, which will be available for various
bottom bracket configurations, is also made of titanium alloy, with a design
that can handle very high load conditions.

    To complement the high rigidity and reliability of the INFINIUM crankset,
the Delta crank arm model was developed using special automatic and proprietary
nanostructuring cold forged aluminium manufacturing processes. Known for its
resistance, the award-winning Delta, available in 170mm or 175mm, can sustain
and absorb hard rock impacts without causing any structural damage. Its
unrivalled endurance properties and superb resistance to impacts is confirmed
by test reports made by reputable external laboratories, even in conditions
that largely exceed the ones demanded by the DIN EN safety standards.

    The whole set was designed to be extremely durable but light, weighing
under 590 grams on some configurations, making it one of the lightest cranksets
available, with a leading strength-to-weight ratio.But what really
differentiates this crankset from all others available on the market is that it
incorporates uncommon and premium materials such as titanium on the chainring
and spindle (no other 1×11 crankset on the market uses this alloy), and the
carbon-based layers to lubricate and protect the chainring. The INFINIUM
crankset is the first to incorporate ChainFLOW cutting-edge technology – an
innovation that will improve the riding experience when high-performance is

    This INFINIUM crankset will feature on some exclusive bicycles from the
major brands and will be available in Q1 2015:
    – from 28T to 44T ring sizes;
    – +- 600g (full set with a 32T chainring);
    – with support for all major drivetrain system configurations/ bottom
