Results are in: fatigue tests conducted by the most respected independent laboratory in the world, say it all
Scottsdale, Arizona U.S.A. (May 2, 2007) If it was a report card, the grade would be A+. Valdora™ Cyles PHX carbon time trial/triathlon bicycle frame has just earned the highest fatigue certification possible from the world’s most respected independent testing laboratories, Germany’s EFBe Pruftechnik.
The “Top Performance” certification (the highest possible standard in the bicycle category) awarded Valdora by EFBe Pruftechnik was not just for the “out of saddle bottom bracket” test that other manufacturer’s frames have been awarded. Instead, the Valdora™ Cyles PHX frame received certification in the most difficult three-part fatigue test, or “Full Test” which includes the added “seat tube load” and “head tube load” tests.

“We are not surprised with the results of the tests,” says Peter Olson, President and CEO of Olson International, Inc, makers of Valdora frames. “We design and build our frames to ride great and
to be fast and durable. The ‘Top Performance’ certification just underlines our company philosophy.”
Valdora bicycles, while geared toward the active cyclist and triathlete, are designed with all athletes in mind. Be they ex-baseball players, football players adding cycling to their training regiment, or even past athletes looking at triathlon as a new sport in which to rekindle their competitive juices.
“The competitive spirit does not end after a high school, college, or professional athletic career,” says Dave Watson, former collegiate swimmer and novice age group triathlete. “The sport of triathlon is growing dramatically.”
And Valdora Cycles is growing right along with it offering products like the “Top Performance” certified Valdora Cyles PHX carbon time trial/triathlon bicycle frame.
