About us

We believe in engineering as an art form

Everyone at Bastion is driven by a passion for engineering and design. It is our creative outlet; how we express ourselves to the world. In that way it is like art.

We are a team of engineers and designers who use advanced engineering, design and manufacturing methods to develop modern solutions that are as beautiful as they are functional. We specialise in design for Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) but are also experienced in all manufacturing methods and have decades of experience in both the Automotive and Bicycle industries.

Our timeline

2019 - In-house Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing)

In January 2019 we commissioned our own in-house Renishaw AM250 Laser Powder Bed Fusion system including Heat Treatment. The machine is running Grade 5 Ti6Al4V Titanium Alloy.

2018 - Argon 18 Track Bike Components

Realising an opportunity for customisable components to enhance the performance of one of the most popular track  bikes in the world we began developing add-on parts for the Argon 18 Electron Pro. These parts have been ridden to several World Cup podiums by the athletes at Cycling Australia and are now also being used by athletes all over the world.

2018 - The Stuart Tripp Project

We developed first a fork, followed by a complete carbon fibre tub to complete the handcycle for Australian Paralympian Stuart Tripp. The final product was significantly lighter and more aerodynamic than the previous handcycle and enabled Stuart to adopt a new position further enhancing the aerodynamic benefits.

2017 - Porsche RP98 World Time Attack Torque Tube

Our first automotive project, we designed the Titanium ends for a new Torque Tube for the RP98 World Time Attack race car which went on to be the first WTA car to break 1min 20sec at Sydney Motorsport Park in 2018.

2017 - Began supplying other Bicycle Frame Builders

 

Working with other custom bicycle builders to develop parts to improve the performance, weight and aesthetics of their frames. It began with cable and hose guides, building to dropouts and now includes full lug-sets for some clients.

2017 - Founded

Born from a demand for our services and a desire to further the adoption of additive manufacturing we created Bastion Advanced in the early months of 2017 as the consulting arm of our core business Bastion Cycles.
