Spektrum’s high-performance frames are made mainly from castor oil and reduces the overall CO2 emissions by an impressive 46% compared to conventional materials. The carbon in castor oil is also 100% derived from atmospheric CO2 and not from CO2 locked in ancient fossils. Our bio-based material is also lighter and more durable than comparable materials delivering increased performance and comfort.
Castor beans are a fantastic crop, able to thrive in meager soils where other plants won’t survive, or animals can graze.
The castor beans are fully traceable, sustainably grown in India and poses no competition with food, causes no deforestation or use any GMO.
