PERMITTED MAX. WEIGHT
Using a tapered head tube with 1-1/8" bearings in the top and 1-1/2" in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise,
confidence inspiring steering.
INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING
Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets.
The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology
with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.
NANO MATRIX CARBON
To protect the integrity of carbon frames, the fibres are bonded together with an epoxy resin with added nano particles,
increasing impact resistance by up to 40%.
When creating the individual carbon elements, an inflatable bladder is used to ensure there are no wrinkles
inside the tube as these can add weight and create weakness.
This results in a lighter, stiffer and stronger frame.
Patent pending design. Carbon is good at absorbing vibration but to increase
comfort we shape the seat posts using our exclusive S-Flex design.
Carbon forks provide superb vibration damping and precise steering.
All road bikes feature a full carbon fork; the steerer and fork blades are all made of carbon.
NACA FASTBACK PROFILE
The aerodynamics are based around a NACA0028 teardrop profile (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) which is truncated. Air moves around the tube as though the missing rear section of the teardrop were still there, saving weight by using less material.
Designing WorldTour bikes is similar to Formula 1: apparently nondescript details can result in saving split seconds. Integrated seat-post clamping minimises turbulence at the top tube.
FLIP FLOP HEAD
Aero bikes deliver the best possible aerodynamics, but superb wind-tunnel performance data is useless if the rider can‘t get into the correct position. The ‘Flip Flop’ head allows seat angles to be optimised for comfort.
