That’s right, we’re closing this amazing competition when 1st of June ends on planet Earth. So Hawaiians, you have a tiny advantage here as you’re still to wake up and use the day to the fullest.
Update: Apologies for the confusion, of course there’s more than 24 hours left as it’s only noon of the 31st of May on the east coast of the USA. I mixed up dates when writing the post in the morning. Deadline was and still is 23:59:59 on June 1st, tomorrow.
The deal so far?
1. We announced the Amarok design competition to come up with the lightest, firmest, coolest-looking triple clamp for their electric super bike two weeks ago.
2. Pause for a collective deep breath (and digesting the requirements)…
3. Everything goes nuts! Aka we get 75+ different clamp designs from our engineers. And all of them look like well thought through designs, a lot come with FEA calculations. A real nice effort!
Yet to come?
First of all, we still have 24 hours to go so if you’ve been tinkering with a model then now’s the time to upload.
Secondly, we’ll filter the list down to top 10 tomorrow and run FEA calculations and then make the final call on top 3 based on a mix of aesthetics, weight and rigidity.
Thirdly, the winners will be contacted, prizes sent out, winners announced here.
The challenge and the prizes
Quick recap of what’s this competition all about - re-design the triple clamp for the Amarok P1 zero emission race bike that is competing to win the International Formula 75 TTXGP Championship. Easy as that. What’s a triple clamp? "This solid part, typically cast in aluminum or steel (on low cost motorcycles), is a bridge that connects the two vertical stansions of the telescopic front forks, and the central steering pivot."
The prize, if you were to come out on top, was an iPad, Amarok racing tshirt and poster. And of course the pride of seeing something you designed help a superbike compete against the best in the world.

You have 24 hours, make the best use of it :)
