While biking reduces both physical and carbon footprints and is a green activity in itself, Renovo pushes to make it even greener by building their bicycle with a sustainable wooden frame. While being environmentally friendly might be one of the advantages of using hardwood frame, there are more technical advantages to using hardwood. Hardwood frames are significantly more durable than metal and can withstand impact that would otherwise ruin metal frames. Also, wooden frames have a longer lifespan than aluminum or steel. The R4 Pursuit Road Bike possesses all the above more than redeeming qualities one seeks in a bicycle with a sturdy blend of black walnut and cedar bonded lengthwise in halves. It is indeed time to open your mind and add some more innovation and green to your ride.
