ABOUT THE BRAND

The French luxury brand Heroin was created out of a quest for absolute perfection. The approach to designing this coveted object is inspired by the “modulor,” a legendary architectural concept that according to its inventor, Le Corbusier, unlocks the secret of ideal proportions to achieve perfect harmony between humans and the space they live in. Adhering to the same rigorous standards, the creators of Heroin have succeeded in combining raw materials and natural lines to craft a unique, “perfect” bicycle.


THE MISSION

The Heroin bike is the first racing bike of its kind. It is designed and assembled in France, from parts manufactured in Italy by craftsmen of exceptional know-how and an unmatched mastery of carbon. Driven by their passion for innovation, they have risen to the challenge of making a bicycle that stands out from the pack by reconciling exceptional performance and technical prowess with elegance and good looks.


THE TECHNOLOGY

The Heroïn bike fuses know-how and technical expertise in a one-of-a-kind product. It is hand-crafted in Italy by experienced technicians with backgrounds in aeronautics and motor sports (Formula 1, MotoGP, WRC, drones, etc.). Each frame component is made separately, molded from Torayca M46J high modulus carbon fiber, a very high-grade fiber used in the aerospace industry. Cured in an autoclave, each frame tube is calibrated, adjusted to the owner's size and assembled through a process that has remained a secret for nearly 30 years, to produce an ultra-light, 26-ounce carbon frame Its singular manufacturing technique combining tube-to-tube assembly with monocoque parts explains its excellent weight-stiffness ratio.

Our engineers focused on the steering function and created a carbon fiber cockpit. It is a centerpiece of the bike: not only does it look amazing, but it also offers several innovative features. Its "compact" shape was designed to optimize ergonomics and comfort. The control cables and rear brake cable are fully integrated. This is also where the Di2 battery charger is mounted to simplify use.
