Tell us about the project you are working on:
Steff: I’ve recently helped to support a Dutch triathlon bike company, working with the former head of composite design at Ferrari F1, to develop a super-fast aero bike. All of the structural and aerodynamic behaviour was generated and understood in a virtual simulation environment before any physical manufacture and testing. Building the moulds for carbon fibre structures can easily cost over six figures, so you definitely don’t want to get this wrong.
You can read more about Evotech’s involvement in the design of the Composite Triathlon Bicycle with Ku Cycles on the Evotech website.
This project sounds amazing and the bike looks very cool. What a fantastic product to work on! Thank you for sharing this work with us.
One last question, we have to ask… why do you like working at Society1?
Steff: S1 is a fantastic place to work. The atmosphere and facilities are second to none, and there’s a great community of like-minded people, entrepreneurs and small business owners, who are great for bouncing ideas and general support. I spent over two years working from a home office, but, as well as the office space, S1 gives me a really important way to ‘book end’ the day, and separate my work life from home.
Thank you Steff, it is really great to hear that you get so much from working at Society1. We totally agree that it is more than just a place to work. The people here are great and getting out of the house is so important to your wellbeing.
