Section 1: Business model analysis

Concrete Carbon is able to offer a high-end seatpost for both road and mountain cycling applications that are among the lightest available, quite comfortable due to carbon fiber's natural ability to disperse vibrations, and arecompletely safe.
Concrete Carbon's competitive edge is based on its product, it is able to offer a range of posts to properly fit each individual rider. The range of posts are based on rider weight. There are no other manufacturers offering custom fitting. This is quite valuable as the ride, safety margin, and weight are all significantly effected by the way the post is tuned. With the post customtuned to a rider's weight range, the weight will only be as much as it needs to be in terms of safety and the ride quality will be optimized by allowing a sufficient amount of flex to occur, dampening road and trail vibrations.
In our opinion, the product that Concrete Carbon is offering has a lot of possibilities.Due to its uniqueness characteristics that suppose a significant competitiveadvantage.
