Award Entries:
The Artisan Award / Tsubasa Crow (Entry for: The Artisan Award):
Tsubasa Crow meant to capture simplicity of genius of bicycle itself. Just like a crow - non sumptuous appearance, which carries highest intelligence among the birds.
Tsubasa Crow is a road racing machine, with racing geometry. Oversized tubes for stiffness, PF30 BB shell, tapered head tube (1 1/8 , 1 1/2) for unbeatable handling quality. All this has been topped up with HM, 70/30 fibre to resin ratio pre-preg to increase power transfer and maximise overall performance of the bike without increase in weight.
Crow has a raw finish, which does not have a layer of clear coat nor decals, instead, it has UV and chemical resistant resin, which originally come from pressurised pre-preg. This technique helped us to shave off "appearance weight " (weight of clear coat, paint, decals), while keeping frame's composite structure safe and helped us to purify the frame to its purest - nothing unnecessary, only pure performance is preserved.

The Artisan Award / Tsubasa Beehive (Entry for: The Artisan Award):
Core of the frame has been built using Single-Piece technology. On top of the core, kevlar honey comb has been applied forming protective layer to ensure durability of the frame's core. Kevlar honey comb also adds rigidity to the frame and creates dimples on the surface of the frame, which does increase aerodynamics.

Steve HED Award (Entry for: The Artisan Award):
Goal of the project was to support orphanages of Ukraine by reviving a piece of Ukraine's (former USSR) cycling history - Takhion.
Bicycle frame is a collaboration between Tsubasa Bicycles and Reginald Vorontsov (designer of Takhion, which won multiple gold medals back in the days, including Olympic Gold and Hour World Record). It has been made out of carbon fibre as carbon fibre version of Takhion remained only as a future plan - former USSR has collapsed and carbon fibre Takhion has never been brought to a daylight.
Project Tsubasa Takhion MASS ment to inspire Ukraine's youth and be a physical reminder of limitless human's capability to create.
