BSc Product Design

Harry Taylor

I enjoy exploring new and upcoming technologies, manufacturing processes and materials alongside an open approach to design. My focus is on creating optimised performance driven products whilst retaining a considered form. I am excited to embark on my new career within R&D and design engineering.

The Wyrd AM01 is a mountain bike brake that leverages additive manufacturing capabilities to optimise mountain biking performance. This is achieved through unique structures that cannot be created by traditional manufacturing methods.

A significantly lighter calliper removes mass from moving suspension components, reducing unsprung weight and allowing for better tracking of the wheel to the surface,therefore improving handling and feel of the bike.

The hydraulic oil benefits from increased thermal dissipation via a larger surface area, reducing brake fade during demanding riding and improving the lifespan of both the oil and seals.

Additionally, customisable levers allow for the perfect fit to the rider, improving ergonomics and allowing for a personalised refined braking feel. Leverage ratios can be tuned to reduce hand fatigue and adjust modulation to the riders needs, opening the opportunity to shave time off race runs.
