Vorhex is a 3d printed bicycle grip.
It was manufactured using Carbon's digital light synthesis (DLS) technology.
It consists of a rigid polyurethane sleeve and an elastomeric polyurethane grip that are thermally bonded to each other. It also comes with an aluminum clamp that assists in fastening it to your handlebar.
Vorhex is designed with lattice structures. These are structures that can be tuned to achieve superior mechanical properties that may not be achievable using conventional materials and traditional manufacturing techniques.
With tunability of mechanical properties comes bespoke product designs that can be tailored to an individuals wants and needs.
