Senior CAD Engineer

REIN4CED will manufacture impact-resistant and lightweight bicycle frames for bicycle brands wishing to offer their cyclists maximum performance with enhanced safety and durability.

Carbon fiber composites, known from Formula 1 and race bikes, are light and strong but face sudden, brittle and dramatic fracture behavior. To tackle this problem, REIN4CED has developed and patented a brand-new composite material. With this new material, and a completely new fully automated production process, REIN4CED will offer safe, durable and lightweight bicycle frames.

The initial focus is on the bicycle market, followed by automotive and aerospace.
