About this project

WHY? 

Because we all have different sizes, tastes and personalities, and we understand that. Because we want to change the way of production, to the smallest detail of personalization and provide the cyclists a product they really need. We want to keep and take further the tradition of hand work and craftsmanship, where the makers truly invest their love in every detail, allowing us to create infinite possibilities.  

FUNCTION  

Personal geometry 

Personal geometry allows the client to choose the type of frame he needs and the type of cycling discipline he wants. The method introduced by RADEV is based on using a series of tubes with 3D brackets. For someone who likes to live wild & free, we’d build a lighter and stiffer frame. A bike touring rider would want a stronger and comfortable frame.

Portable  

The RADEV frames come fully apart and could be easily transported. They also give the freedom to swap a broken part when needed. Disassembled, the frame can be held securely in nearly every 25L backpack and simply pokes out the top of a 15L size!

Upgrade  

One has the opportunity to upgrade the tubes or individual parts in time. If you buy for instance aluminum tubes (standard T6 and T7) and later decide you want a lighter frame, all you need to do is to change the tubing to titanium or carbon.  

STYLE/PERSONALITY

Custom Joints  

The infinite possibilities don’t stop here. The brackets can take any shape or form you can imagine. Producing different and unique joints for every frame, we can optimize the parts as our cyclists wish them to be. 

Custom colors  

RADEV also provides several palettes of colors to choose from, so that find your ideal one. At the highest point of RADEV class, you can get any colors and graphics you can dream of.

Custom graphics  

We do 100% personalized graphics, either made by our design team or based on your own creation. Anything to make sure it’s totally compatible to your style and personality.

ABOUT  

RADEV  

RADEV began as strong urge to provide something authentic. RADEV is not only about bike frames, it’s also about care, love, dedication and style. We are very focused on our cyclists and on the satisfaction of building something handmade and unique. Through RADEV we want to change how you think of bikes, from being a necessity to being a dream accessory that totally represents you and makes you confident, happy and yourself. Most importantly – it could be anything you desire, as it’s crafted for you!  

#MilanoDesignWeek2016  

Experience In April 2016 RADEV exhibited at Milano Design Week: Furorisalone del Mobile. This experience was a first step for RADEV and gave us the opportunity to meet with responsive people and more important, to hear their impressions on our products, what they really want and expect from it. We look forward to seeing you next year at Milano Design Week 2017 and share with you this wonderful adventure.

Process

 

The first step of the process is to take measurements from our cyclists. We then apply these to the geometry of the bike through a simple formula. Then, our product designers cautiously create the CAD file, making sure it gets to its perfect form. The next step of the process is to bring the virtual form of the frame to our trusted manufacturers and turn them into reality. The bike frames are then hand finished and carefully packed to be sent. During this process, we dedicate 100% to make every wish come true.  

Ambitions/ GOALS  

 

We aim to grow and update our facilities in order to give more people the possibility to get the RADEV custom bike frames. We aspire to open our own factory, to get an online configurator, to invest in new technologies and new materials so that we can continuously offer a better quality. These are only a few goals we set to reach, and moreover we wish to keep an open mind and connect with our customers by listening to their evolving needs.

TEAM  

RADEV is an international team of dedicated and ambitious young creatives with different backgrounds, brought together by the same values and who aspire to make a change in the world of bikes.

Risks and challenges

The products of RADEV are produced with focus on the customer and this is helping us to keep a close connection to the clients.
The production is not fully in-house, as we are very young and still small, but we are working only with others who can meet or extend our high-criteria. This is a reason why RADEV is hand-made in EU, under EU quality control and even the raw materials are sourced from EU.
Even so manufacturing always involves risks, but exactly that`s why RADEV is based on customer connection and trust. Sharing visual material about every single step of your product, will keep you close and updated.

In the end without you there is no RADEV. Please help us to stand up on our feet, because we are hungry to continue inventing trustful, timeless infinite possibilities.
