Vistagy has entered a technical partnership with 3T, one of the foremost names in Italian cycling.

3T will use Vistagy’s FiberSIM software to design, manufacture and optimize the composite components it produces for professional and amateur cyclists.

“FiberSIM is the best technology available to engineer composite products, and we believe that’s what it takes to produce safety-critical components for world-class athletes,” said Rene Wiertz, president and CEO of 3T. “Our partnership with Vistagy is further evidence of our commitment to invest in engineering and become the best-in-class component supplier for the bicycle industry.”

3T has entirely renewed its model line—which currently includes stems, drop bars, aero bars, forks and seat posts—to take advantage of the unique properties of composite materials. 3T is investing in the people and tools necessary to design outstanding cycle components, realized with state-of-the-art composite engineering made possible by FiberSIM.

“3T is introducing the same standards of professional engineering to cycling that now exist in aerospace and race car design,” said Richard McAinsh, 3T’s technical director. “FiberSIM is critical to that effort and is a key component of our product development platform, which also consists of leading computer-aided-design (CAD) and finite element analysis (FEA) software. These three systems working together give us greater control over manufacturing, significantly increased product quality and reduced time-to-market. We believe this is the new standard for engineering cycle components, and we look forward to working with our colleagues at Vistagy to raise the bar still further.”

“We’re pleased to have the opportunity to partner with a leading manufacturer of bicycle components,” said Steve Luby, president and CEO of Vistagy. “It will give us a foothold in an exciting new market and enable us to help 3T deliver products of unprecedented quality and sophistication to cycling professionals and enthusiasts.”
