Isn't that what they nowadays call "programmed deformation" or "crumple zones"?

Pretty much any bike, except for a few high-end frames from Cervelo (California series), Trek (they still build a few Madones in Wisconsin, but the majority are produced in Taiwan), BMC (since 2010), and a few other European builders. Multiple brands are produced in the same factory. Most department-store bikes are built in Taiwanese or Chinese plants owned by Giant, which also markets higher-end bikes under its own name. This bike, specifically, is Chinese-branded as well.
