Predator Cycling® pushes the envelope in design simulation & additive 3D print manufacturing. Utilizing a powerhouse combination of Ansys software, Lenovo hardware, and Nvidia GPU, we launch a uniquely designed and simulated product line exclusively intended for volumized 3D print manufacturing. Predator presents use-case studies, interviews, & marketing campaigns at Ansys Simulation World 2021, Ansys Level Up 2.0 Conference 2021, Lenovo’s RevLive Conference 2021, Nvidia GTC 2021, and Nvidia’s exclusive Omniverse panel at Siggraph 2021. In addition to being highlighted on each partner’s respective website blog, Predator is also featured on Engineering.com, DigitalEngineering247.com and continues to release weekly company insight & commentary on our new podcast, “Project Breakaway.”
After three years of intense redesign and testing Predator Cycling® is ready to launch the new RF20 frame. The design and manufacturing process was celebrated and shared at both the 2018 and 2019 Autodesk University software and networking convention in Las Vegas, NV.
Predator Cycling® leaves California for Tennessee. Equipped with a brand new shop space, Predator continues product design while lending its hand to consultation in the medical, automotive, and defense industries.
Our design workflow takes a monumental step forward using 3D design and print in conjunction with CNC routing. Additive and subtractive manufacturing unites to create superior function. Custom handlebar, The Major Pilot, is released in Sept. 2016. Within .06mm tolerance, these one-piece bars are molded to maximize strength in handling, weighing in in at <250 grams. Our handlebars are ridden by USA track cyclist Bobby Lea in the Rio Olympics.
We celebrate 10 years of business & a location move to Canoga Park, CA for fabrication. Predator Cycling® expands beyond bikes with custom design for 3rd party vendors. Clients include Autodesk, Inc. and Action Vehicle.
Robots take over. We use CNC routing & design code for new custom components. The Razorback number holder is redesigned. DIY hits the shelves! We release a fully-equipped at-home repair kit for customers interested in cost-friendly repair options.
Customers show interest in salvaging frames. We begin to offer carbon repair services in-store and mail-in nationwide. We launch the very first online repair form & photo upload system for mail-in, now a bike industry standard.
The Abbot, our first production run of 35 aluminum frames are released. Manufacturing becomes our main focus, along with a location move to Santa Monica, CA. We discontinue retail sales and realign with full custom carbon fiber frame builds.
