Bruce Bursford was inspired to design and build a cycle by the new technologies employed in the Formula One and aerospace industries.

By using prepregnated carbon weave, The Ultimate Bike is four times as strong as a conventional steel tube bicycle of the same weight.

At Brooklands Museum on 23rd August 1995, Bruce Bursford pedalled the Ultimate Bike to a speed record of 207.9mph/334.6km/h on fixed rollers breaking the old record of 153mph that had stood since 1988.

Tragically, in 2000, Bruce Bursford was killed while out training. He was the holder of 10 world cycling records.
