British Cycling could take legal action to prevent Japanese and French Federations from using new track bikes

August 11, 2023

British Cycling is considering taking legal action over potential patent infringements from the new bikes of the Japanese Track Cycling Federation and French Track Cycling Federation.

Cycling Weekly understands the potential infringements relate to the wide fork and seat stay designs on the Look P24 and V-IZU TCM. This design concept, which was first seen on the Tokyo 2020 Hope x Lotus track bike, received a patent (‘Improvements in or relating to cycles’) for many of its design elements back in April 2022.
