T.I.X Platinum G1
A Storck for any terrain. The T.I.X. is a cross frame in a class of its own with an oversized headset for increased head tube stiffness, proportional tubing and ‘Directional Depending Stiffness’ for best technical performance in all frame sizes. ‘Torque Free Axles’ provide greater stability and disc brakes ensure the required safety. The ‘all-clear’ for cross-country fun - be it with an electronic or mechanical gearshift. The engineering approaches used in the T.I.X. guarantee unrivaled and secure riding feel and noticeable comfort. The handling characteristics of the T.I.X. ‘help’ any rider stay on track. T.I.X. – genetically induced dynamics.

As with every Storck bike, Markus Storck is the leading input in design with years of experience of carbon engineering and aerodynamics.
It all starts with an idea, a mental concept or a vision - inspired by the knowledge of what motivates bikers, what fascinates them and what ultimately makes sense, is useful and innovative. This is followed by meticulous work on the project – the search for and discarding of solutions, and starting again from scratch with a new approach. The results continually have to be measured against the objectives. Our engineers are untiring in their efforts of searching for creative solutions and coming up with improvements that make technical sense. A wide range of technologies that make our frames and components the best in the world have been created this way. All the development steps take place at our headquarters in Idstein and all ideas, new developments and research projects are initiated, managed, coordinated and reviewed in Germany. Before going into production, every product is tested by means of scientific methods and on our own test benches. German Engineering is an attribute of all Storck products – an attribute we are proud of and that our customers can rely on.
The approaches of our engineers pursue a single aim: to develop frames and components with outstanding technical features.
Torque Free Axle
Disc brakes massively stress the frame and the axles due to the absorption of the torsion and shear forces that are generated while braking. Torsion-resistant shafts, called through-axles, are the best way to counter these forces. Storck through-axles are not only used in mountain bikes but have long made their way into cross and road bikes with disc brakes as well. They provide stability, precise fit and stiffness.
Larger frames, due to the rider’s weight and higher leverage, are naturally exposed to higher load changes as well. Proportional Tubing takes these loads into account. The conification, the wall thickness of the tubes and the diameter are adapted to these loads. This results in frames which, irrespective of the frame height, deliver consistently good stiffness and comfort values.
Directional Depending Stiffness
Directional depending stiffness is the ability of a frame or component to optimally respond with high stiffness to the forces acting in the load direction while ensuring high comfort. In other words, it is the synergy between intended stiffness and desired comfort. In the case of frames, this is achieved by designing transverse-oval tube shapes, the targeted selection of materials (e.g. carbon fibers) and their application (e.g. special layups for carbon fiber reinforced plastics).

Where's My Piggy Bank?
"Returning to where I started, did a supposed superbike live up to high expectations? My answer is a resounding and barely qualified yes."Read More
"A superlative bike - super fast and super exclusive. It is the best controllable bike in the whole test. The TIX seduces its rider to go fast, but remains very comfortable. It combines race and comfort!"
