Czech made 760 gram Duratec Phantom comes to Bespoked show

Duratec claims its Phantom full monocoque frame weighs just 760 grams

Duratec is based in the Czech Republic, with its bikes distributed in the UK by Bicycles by Design. The Phantom frameset uses a production process in which the frame is made as one piece, rather than being constructed as subcomponents, such as a rear triangle construct, which are then bonded together.

Paul started writing for Cycling Weekly in 2015, covering cycling tech, new bikes and product testing. Since then, he’s reviewed hundreds of bikes and thousands of other pieces of cycling equipment for the magazine and the Cycling Weekly website.

He’s been cycling for a lot longer than that though and his travels by bike have taken him all around Europe and to California. He’s been riding gravel since before gravel bikes existed too, riding a cyclocross bike through the Chilterns and along the South Downs.
