Cycling is, and will always be a sport driven and decided by uncountable factors. This drives each competitive cyclist to look for solutions balancing all these factors; peak power versus endurance, rolling resistance versus grip, weight versus aerodynamics, price versus performance.
As two (ex-) competitive cyclists we; Jules de Cock and Noah van Horen, have always been intrigued by these factors, testing, measuring and tinkering. With studying and working on lightweight, high performance projects outside of the cycling industry we gathered knowledge and know-how to specialise in carbon manufacturing. We combine our passion for racing, technology and craftsmanship to make you the best products.
In Februari 2020, Together with Dutch long distance Triathlon champion Erik-Simon Strijk we started the development of a Triathlon specific version of Speeco’s TTX. While corona slowed us down, it did not stop us from going on. In the end, both parties are really happy with the result of this..Read More
First Speeco workshop
Due to Corona measurements, the University of Eindhoven had to be closed, thus all our research and production facilities were blocked. A Speeco workshop was rented and built, so we can develop and produce products while being able to socially distance from other people.
Performance by innovation congress
Speeco attends and gives a workshop at theta’s innovation by performance congress, challenging TU/e and Fontys students to combine their technical knowledge and sports experience into developing (customised) sports equipment.
After countless designs and prototypes, the first final TTX is built for Béta tester Pieter ten Kortenaar.
To further optimize aerodynamics, and make the extensions UCI-legal, a second prototype was developed.
TU/e innovation space
To make Speeco products commercially available, we joined TU/e innovation space. Here we grow together with a dozen of other entrepreneurs and student teams driven by innovation
Motivated by the windtunnel test, the design was fixated into the desired position and made out of carbon-fiber. This prototype was later used at the Dutch national student championships, and broke the hour-record on Eindhoven’s track OpNoord.
Breaking Cda values
After already a few design iterations a chance to test in the TU/e windtunnel came into our path. The latest iteration was 3D printed and tested, while being quite bulky (for it still had to be able to be adjusted to optimise the position) a Cda value improvement of 2.3%..Read More
Start design phase
In an everlasting search for the best possible components.
Jules ended his bachelor with designing a carbon manufacturing method for high-speed record breaking RC-planes student team Air/e. Here lies the foundation for a lot of SPEECO’s later developed technologies in carbon manufacturing.
