Optimized Mechanical Design
CRE8 designed and engineered a seatpost clamp for world-renowned bicycle manufacturer - Cannondale for their new product line.
The idea of a hidden and fully integrated clamp design involved the assistance from our mechanical engineering team to have the best result possible. Mechanically, it has to be strong enough to hold the seatpost without losing aesthetics in every aspect.
Our engineers collaborated with our industrial designers throughout the whole design process. The smooth development showed great team work and led to excellent manufacturability. The cross-section view is to check if every piece has enough tolerance to move without interfering each other.
A stress test was simulated using software to optimize the shape of this seatpost clamp.
