Carla is designed for the year-round urban lifestyle – light, fun, easy to maintain and long lived.
Coh&Co's FIRM technology bicycles are the world’s first true composite urban bicycles.
FIRM is a fiber composite technology that changes the technological landscape of the bicycle frame. Similar to a carbon fiber racing frame FIRM offers lightness and stiffness while being much more robust and easily repairable. Utilizing carbon fiber, glass and basalt fiber in a cored construction provides a relatively light frame with unusually good vibration dampening and stiffness making it a tough bike, that is smooth and quiet to ride.
We've named our first FIRM model Carla. She is designed for the year-round urban lifestyle – light, fun, easy to maintain and long lived.
Carla's non-corrosive composite frame is paired with a Gates belt drive system to offer better power transfer than a chain, it weighs less and lasts longer: best of all there is NO oil, rust or grime!
In harmony with the carbon belt drive Carla has a gear system that will perform through any city winter grime. Shimano’s Alfine hub gear system is available in 8 and 11 gear variations and the very nature of this beast is durability and low maintenance.
Our Esse saddles are also designed for every day life in an urban environment. These saddles are elegant, robust and comfortable and even have an IMO marine certification that guarantees the utmost of outdoor durability.
Last but not least are our wheels from Gippiemme in Italy. These have been built with 650B wheel diameters to increase maneuverability and make it easier to come up to speed when pulling away from yet another traffic light. They are finished with a hard anodized coating to insure the most corrosion resistant finish we can provide.
Even Carla's mudguards are quite special. Made of fiber glass they cannot corrode and supported by stainless steel stays they can also be restored to a new shine with a minimum of elbow grease.
