Renishaw says that it is working with British Cycling to develop a new version of the Hope-Lotus track bike.

The company reportedly used additive manufacturing (AM) in prototype testing and to produce 3D printed metal components for the final bike.

“Working with British Cycling is a fantastic opportunity to showcase how our additive manufacturing technologies can help improve the performance of the bike and ensure that it is optimised for individual riders,” said Louise Callanan, director of additive manufacturing at Renishaw.

The bike will be ridden at 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, France, Renishaw said.
