Flax, it's not just for breakfast

Flax and carbon fiber combined to make bicycles. Interesting combination. I guess it works, because Museeuw Bikes are producing bikes and have won awards for their frames.

Flax fiber is one of the best natural fibers on the planet in regards to stiffness, strength and shock absorption. Carbon fiber, also well known for its stifness and strength, is well established in the industry. Museeuw Bikes is combining flax fiber with the best carbon fibers available. Due to its high strength and stiffness, the 3K Carbon HM (high modular) is being used in combination with flax to build world's finest bikes. The 3K Carbon HM is also used for all the tube connections.
