FROM GRAN FONDOS TO SOLO RIDES, THIS LIGHTWEIGHT COMPOSITE ROAD BIKE FEATURES ENDURANCE GEOMETRY AND BUILT-IN COMPLIANCE. SMOOTH AND FAST, ALL DAY LONG.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS:
Advanced Composite frame is specifically engineered for endurance road riding, delivering a smooth ride quality and less fatigue on long rides. The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar absorb road shocks and vibrations.
Disc brake integration, including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles, produces more consistent braking power for better control, even in wet weather and rough roads.
Endurance road geometry, added tire clearance (up to 35mm) and disc-brake integration allow you to tackle a variety of roads and conditions, from smooth pavement to rugged backroads and mountain passes.
